Jump Back Jack

James 1:19-21
19My dear brothers, take note of this:
Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to
speak and slow to become angry, 20for
man's anger does not bring about the
righteous life that God desires. 21Therefore,
get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so
prevalent and humbly accept the word
planted in you, which can save you.

I failed the test, my guard was down I
was in reaction mode and pulled the
trigger (my tongue) quickly and
precious people were wounded in the
battled that ensued.
Today's verse for the day on
www.biblegateway.com is
1 Peter 5:8-9
“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy
the devil prowls around like a roaring lion
looking for someone to devour. Resist him,
standing firm in the faith, because you know
that your brothers throughout the world are
undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”-

Now the mission is to seek forgiveness and
bind up the broken hearted; finding my
strength to do so in the Lord and God gets
the glory for the great things He continues
to do.
So "Jump back Jack" (meaning the devil)
in the name of Jesus! Greater is God than any
darts you are tossing.

Let's Pray: Lord, we know it is of no
surprise to You, but there is a battle going on
and it is ferocious! Keep us on the alert and
slow to speak, but quick to pray for only You
can save the day! May the prayers and cries
of your people abound in a fashion like never
before and may that become the norm for us,
not just an emergency call for this specific time,
but a way of life that becomes a familiar pattern
to many who maybe are just seeing the Light...
Jesus in whose name we pray. Amen
