JESUS CALLING

Saturday, February 23, 2013

BE ON GUARD AGAINST THE PIT OF SELF-PITY. WHEN YOU ARE WEARY OR UNWELL, THIS DEMONIC TRAP IS THE GREATEST DANGER YOU FACE. DON'T EVEN GO NEAR THE EDGE OF THE PIT. ITS EDGES CRUMBLE EASILY, AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOU ARE ON THE WAY DOWN. IT IS EVER SO MUCH HARDER TO get OUT OF THE PIT THAN TO KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE FROM IT. THAT IS WHY I TELL YOU TO BE ON GUARD.

THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM SELF-PITY. WHEN YOU ARE OCCUPIED WITH PRAISING AND THANKING ME, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FEEL SORRY FOR YOURSELF. ALSO, THE CLOSER YOU LIVE TO ME, THE MORE DISTANCE THERE IS BETWEEN YOU AND THE PIT. LIVE IN THE LIGHT OF MY PRESENCE BY FIXING YOUR EYES ON ME. THEN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO RUN WITH ENDURANCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE YOU, WITHOUT STUMBLING OR FALLING.

BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO HAVE LEARNED TO ACCLAIM YOU, WHO WALK IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR PRESENCE, O LORD. THEY REJOICE IN YOUR NAME ALL DAY LONG; THEY EXULT IN YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. PSALM 89: 15-16.

THEREFORE, SINCE WE ARE SURROUNDED BY SUCH A GREAT CLOUD OF WITNESSES, LET US THROW OFF EVERYTHING THAT HINDERS AND THE SIN THAT SO EASILY ENTANGLES, AND LET US RUN WITH PERSEVERANCE THE RACE MARKED OUT FOR US. LET US FIX OUR EYES ON JESUS, THE AUTHOR AND PERFECTOR OF OUR FAITH, WHO FOR THE JOY SET BEFORE HIM ENDURED THE CROSS, SCORNING ITS SHAME, AND SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE THRONE OF GOD. HEBREWS 12:1-2

Keep your eyes upon Jesus and don't stray from Him and peace and joy will be yours every day. He will not leave you or forsake you, but hold you close to Him.

Blessings
Joanie
