As I took my morning jog...I noticed in the distance there were several buzzards circling over a very specific area. My first thought was...some animal is injured...or dead. For whatever reason, immediately God spoke to my heart:
He said to me, "Those who do not continually pray...are prey." Wow. Never thought of it that way before...but as I recalled an all too familiar Scripture, 1 Peter 5:8...I was reminded that there IS AN ENEMY...and according to this Scripture...He's looking for "someone to devour."
I'm not sure what you're going through, but the enemy is looking for someone who is injured or "appears" spiritually dead. (In other words, someone who does not appear "alive" with the Spirit of God and the sacrificial blood of Christ running throught their veins.) We aren't "alive" if we're not "in Christ." AND we cannot be "in Christ" if we are not continually praying...prayer is our "lifeline" to our God who saves. (He is the vine...we are the branches)
So, I'm sharing with you, the message I received from God today..."stay in a state of prayer." If it's evident to the enemy that you're "alive" (in Christ)...he'll see that you're not "easy prey." In the words of one of my favorite pastors, Charles Stanley,
"We stand strongest upon our knees!"
Praying for you ALL always, with joy,
