Quiet Time with Jesus – the real enemy

Thursday, 3 March 2016

So and so is becoming more and more difficult to work with … You might be thinking this kind of thought this morning. Pause and ask, “Who is the real enemy?”

The real enemy uses people to stir up anger, jealousy, strife … The devil steals, kills and destroys … Satan is out to break up the church of Jesus Christ, families, friends – relationships especially where there is unity in Christ, love for Christ …

We are proud people … we react when we are humiliated. We are impatient people … we react when we don’t get what we want ... Pause and ask, "What am I doing?"


My Prayer

Dear God, have mercy on us! Help us turn to You immediately in difficult situations. Help us see the real enemy when we face a difficult person be it our family member, colleague, friend or just a neighbor.

You have called us to love. You have called us to pray. Let us do what You have called us to do – to love and to pray.

You said that You will bless the people who bless us and You will curse the people who curse us. Let us not curse anyone lest we be cursed by You. Have mercy on us LORD!

Dear Holy Spirit, help us! In Jesus’ powerful name I pray, amen!

Purify my heart; Let me be as gold and precious silver; Purify my heart; Let me be as gold, pure gold; Refiner’s fire; My heart’s one desire; Is to be holy; Set apart for You, Lord; I choose to be holy; Set apart for You, my Master; Ready to do Your will; Purify my heart; Cleanse me from within; And make me holy; Purify my heart; Cleanse me from my sins; Deep within; Amen (Song: Refiner’s Fire)
