Watching and Praying!

"And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." Luke 21:34-36

Jesus' message is clear here! Pay attention to the world around you and the condition of your heart. It is clear that worldly lusts and pleasures are one of the devices the enemy uses to make churches and individual believers ineffective and blinded to the signs of the coming of the Lord. As a result, there will be the tendency to follow after the things the world offers with little effort spent on drawing nearer to Jesus. It is for this reason that Jesus called us to watch and pray. Remember, true deception only works when things around us seem normal. A hunter knows that he must blend in to the surroundings or his prey will not feel comfortable enough to come to him. A trapper must set the snare on the trail in a way that does not arouse suspicion. Satan must attack us while going to great effort to make sure we do not perceive the attack. Be sober! Be vigilant! Jesus is coming and the enemy is redoubling his efforts to make sure we don't recognize the season of His return.

Please pray for the desperate situation in Haiti.
