MY FAVORITE RADIO STATION & MORNING TEAM!
1 Peter 5:8 (The Message)
Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up.
The enemy’s goal is to steal, kill, and destroy. The devil is interested in causing confusion and he will stop at nothing in an attempt to thwart God’s plan for our lives. The enemy wants to distract us and rattle us so that others see us as incompetent or weak. His ultimate objective is for us to get lost with the lost! He definitely doesn’t want us to be vessels to find and encourage the lost.
I had the honor and pleasure of being a guest on “A Call to Prayer” earlier this month on WDJC, Birmingham’s Christian Radio Station. I was humbled to be a part of this exciting opportunity to encourage others through prayer!
I prepared for this particular morning as I typically prepare for each morning. I got ready and sat down to read the One Year Bible. I had also prepared by compiling some of my favorite Scripture to use when praying over others. I knew I would be nervous speaking on the air, therefore, I wanted to have a reference guide of verses available.
After I left my house, I used my www.mapquest.com notes to find WDJC. I didn’t use the GPS device on my phone, because I didn’t want to be distracted by my phone. I left in plenty of time, and I am next to never directionally challenged. NEVER SAY NEVER! Satan distracted me, and I kept driving in circles. I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone. Finally, I had to stop and send a text to Roxanne to ask for help. Thankfully, I made it to the station, but I was quite rattled by the morning drama!
Interestingly, the enemy wants us LOST or he wants us to think we are LOST. In other words, he doesn’t want the lost found, and he wants to distract believers into thinking they too are lost. I thought I was lost that morning, as I allowed the enemy to lie to me about my confidence. The devil knows who my TRUE NORTH is, and he wants me to question the PEACE that resides in me
Another interesting thing about my morning, I didn’t reference my guide of verses when I prayed at the station, as God placed into my spirit exactly what He wanted me to say. It’s good to be prepared, but God showed me that HE has been preparing me for 45 years for this moment. That increased my faith.
So, the next time the enemy tries to distract you, rattle you, or to make you feel lost, simply speak the Word of God with…..
I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST!
Tell the enemy to “GET LOST!”
I refuse to listen to the lies of the enemy. When he tries to distract or rattle my spirit, remind me WHO IS IN ME. He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world. Thank you for the gift of prayer and the opportunity that I can pray with boldness, because YOU SPEAK THROUGH ME. You have equipped me to be a confident warrior for your Kingdom; a vessel to find and encourage the lost. You will not let me lose my way, because you are right by my side! I trust you to keep my paths straight. Thank you for being my TRUE NORTH!
