The Enemy Has Laid A Snare For Those Who Have Become Over-Confident And Careless

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Complacency is a weapon formed against you. This is a time when you should be pressing through every hindrance to your relationship with Me, says the Lord. It is not a time to become self-satisfied or to justify spiritual laziness. The enemy has laid a snare for those who have become over-confident and careless. You live in troubled times, and it is vital that you establish the eternal kingdom in yourself and in your surroundings so that My light can shine in the darkness of the world.

Luke 11:33-36 “No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light. The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light.”

One may have begun to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  One may have fallen asleep and may have awakened and finished and praying.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to 1 Chronicles 24.  Thank You Jesus!

One may not have prayed for the outstanding prayer requests for this day.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

Just Keep Pressing Through

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 16, 2010:

As you are faithful to trust Me with every situation and circumstance, you will see breakthroughs one-by-one on every level of existence and activity. There is a repositioning that will manifest in unique ways that will remove stubborn hindrances and obstacles that have kept you from moving ahead. Just keep pressing through, says the Lord.

Proverbs 4:12 When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, And when you run, you will not stumble.

One may have awakened around 1:00 AM.  One may have buckled down and got some work done.  One may have been surprised how much one may have accomplished without the distractions that one may have throughout the day.

One may have tried unsuccessfully to get a quick nap before one’s special time with Jesus.  At 3:20 AM, one may have logged onto one’s computer and checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been so encouraged once again.  Thank you Jesus!

Many things may be going on in one’s life.  One may have trouble coming from all sides.  One may just give it all to Jesus and try to stay focused on what’s most important.  One’s ankle may be much better but it may not be 100% healed.  One may have to be careful not to twist it or stay on it too much through out the day.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have begun to praise the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Psalms 18.  Thank you Jesus.

One’s grandson may have interrupted one while one may have been in one’s prayer closet.  The child may have been hungry.  One may have prayed and asked the Lord if it was okay to feed the child once one left one’s prayer closet and to pray for the outstanding prayer requests later.  The child may have been watching something on one’s computer and one may have been tired as well.

One may have prayed for the outstanding prayer requests this morning after breakfast.  Lord Jesus, thank you for hearing and answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, amen.
