“Remember To Pray” 05-20-09

Have you ever twisted a locked door and wished that it opened?

How did you react to it…was it crying and moping?

Have you ever slipped on your studies or lacked on your focus?

Did it take your final grades to show it or did you just notice?

Are you self motivated…tell me what are your motives?

Are your days filled with joy or do you feel like you’re hopeless?

Do you think you’re the best? Do you feel like you’re chosen?

Is your spiritual life together or do you feel like you’re broken?

I’ll suggest what to do while you let ALL of that soak in.

Forget your seniority and set some priorities,

Do what you are supposed to do and respect all authority.

When you serve the true and living, He removes all stress.

Once you realize this, claiming to be the best will change to blessed.

In your heart believe and with thine lips confess.

Now your sins are forgiven and your slate is wiped fresh.

Now grow ye strong in faith and eat your spiritual plate,

By getting in Gods word for your souls sake.

Now understand this, you will be tested and tempted,

But Christ took the test for you so if you accept…you exempt it.

Before you go to bed at night or rise each day,

Don’t just hop into or out of bed to get on your merry way,

Fall to your knees and say, “Thank you Jesus” and remember to pray.

Moral: Remember the enemy has more power than we give him credit. A wise person once said Satan’s biggest fear is that we recognize how much power he really has. If we think about it, we’ll pray more, we’ll study more, and we’ll grow closer to God. So, take a look back and remember the enemy was in Heaven with God before he fell from grace. He even talked with God in the book of Job. He has power, so stay focused on the Word and don’t get distracted.
