Watch For And Discern Those Things That Remove You From My Presence

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/2/11:

There are adjustments to be made if you will live and walk in the Spirit. Watch for and discern those things that remove you from My presence, says the Lord. For, there are thoughts, motives, and actions that need to be overcome and abandoned for the sake of peace and eternal benefit. The enemy of your soul continues to watch for opportunities to destroy you. This is a time when you should make your call and election sure.

2 Peter 1:5-11 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

One may have heard subsequent alarms go off.  One may have been tired and may have continued to sleep.  When one may have finally gotten up, it may have been 3:40 AM.  One may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.  Jesus, please forgive one for not checking the time when one may have heard the first alarm.  One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:55 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song.

As one may have been preparing one’s prayer closet, one may have noticed that one’s fish tank may have been very cloudy and the water may have looked murky and brown.  One may have thought this odd due to one changing the water the previous day.  One may have put in a product to clear the water.  Fearing that the product may have been too old, one may have done an 80% water change.

One’s cat may have been getting on top of the tank recently.  One may believe that the cat may have drunk water from the tank’s filter and it may have put its paw in it as well.  One may have created a cover for the fish tank’s opening where the filter may be exposed that may allow air in and keep the cat out.  Thank You Jesus!  The fish may be doing fine.  Both the fish and cat may be three years old.

One may have reentered one’s prayer closet while continuing to confess one’s sins.  One may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to 1 Kings 21 – Naboth’s Vineyard.  Thank You Jesus!

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

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests after getting one’s grandson off to school.  Lord, thank You for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
