… these last couple of days weren’t the same what with the silence from my friend and secret crush….he’s almost good to eat 🙂 just saying.
So he saw me out on the town last night (got home late and was sounding rather husky on the show today, kinda liked the sound if I say so myself) , and he sent a late night text message, which I paid no attention, considering I’d deleted his number from my cel after the silent treatment went on too long…
All was sad until he walked into the studio, and asked why I didn’t respond to his message….to which 😉 I broke out into a smile, and my lil heart lept with joy at the realisation that I have my friend back, yipee
We had lunch together too.
Anyway, on a serious note…
When Your Prayer Life Goes
…Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation…”‘ Matthew 26:41
The enemy knows what your God-given potential is, and he’s out to stop you before you reach it. Prayer puts a shield of divine protection around you; don’t live without it! There are hands holding this devotional that may not be here next year unless somebody prays on their behalf (Luke 22:31). There are people reading this page who thought that they, of all people, would never ‘blow it,’ yet they did. Unless you acknowledge the propensity to sin that’s within you, you won’t pray against it and you’ll always be vulnerable to the enemy’s attack. During the last hours of His life Jesus warned His disciples, ‘Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.’ In The Message, Eugene Petersen paraphrases the words of Christ: ‘Stay alert; be in prayer so you don’t wander into temptation without even knowing you’re in danger.’ Paul writes: ‘…Put on every piece of God’s armour so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm…Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion’ (Ephesians 6:13-18 NLT). The most effective weapon the enemy has against you is you! Your old sin nature must be taken to the cross and crucified daily. The place of prayer is where you do that. In God’s presence you see yourself as He sees you. There, at the point of repentance, He reveals, He removes and He restores. When your prayer life goes, so does your protection. So get busy and reorder your priorities.
till next time,
easy does it 🙂
