But when God’s light shines on something, people can see clearly its true nature. (Ephesians 5:13)
Keep looking to God. He is the author and finisher of our faith. If we will keep our eyes on Jesus then we will see Him. Years ago we sang a Chorus that simply said, “Everywhere I go I see you.” This brings to my mind a question; do I see you Lord. I can see you if I look for you; which brings to mind a prayer; help Lord!
Now that we have that taken care of that, let’s move on to watching God. What are we looking for? Are we content with what we see? If we are not, we need to pray. Just say something to God. That is all we have to do. Prayer changes things.
When I woke up this morning, I jumped out of bed and could hardly stay upright. In fact, I went back to lie down and try it all over. It took quite awhile to get rid of that and during that time, I was being hit with many fiery darts from the enemy. You know he always has suggestions that are not good for us.
Then, as I went to my prayer and devotion spot and I was listening to a prayer warrior and praying along. Then as I went on to devotions and reading God’s word, it hit me that the enemy is reeling as he is hit by our prayers; he is stumbling and trying to catch his balance. So let’s keep hitting him.
Every day, multiple millions are praying. Don’t think your prayers are not important. Every dart we throw hits the mark. I sometimes have thought that I do not pray enough or right; I mean there are people who really pray, so what good are my simple prayers? The truth is all prayer is powerful. We just have to play our part in finishing the battle.
In sports, it often about who hustles the most. In football, someone might deliver the big hit, but then someone else comes to finish it before the ball carrier can regain their balance or pull in a pass. The final hit may not take much, but if it is not made the other team may score. It is about doing our part.
If we are paying attention and expecting God to act, then we have our eyes on the prize. Over the last months, there has been tension and violence and wringing of the hands as they say, but those who trust God will do exploits! We cannot win if we do not stand. We cannot stand if we pay more attention to doubt that we do to faith.
God knows what He is doing and will do. Out part is to trust that He is able. Keep firing and your doubts and fears will be defeated. Because He lives and because He holds the future, we can rejoice. I know one thing. When the roll is called up yonder I’ll be there. That gives me all the comfort I need! Just keep watching God. Give the devil a punch! Thank you Jesus.
