Thought for the Day – November 30, 2011

Satan does not stutter or stumble when you walk through church doors or attend committee meetings.  Demons aren’t flustered when you read this book.  But the walls of hell shake when one person with honest heart and faithful confession says, “Oh, God, how great thou art.”

Thought for the Day – November 26, 2011

Satan seeks to interrupt our prayer.  Our battle with prayer is not entirely our fault.  The devil knows the stories; he’s witnessed the angel in Peter’s cell and the revival in Jerusalem.  He knows what happens when we pray.  “Our weapons have power from God that can destroy the enemy’s strong places” (2 Corinthians 10:14).

Most of us struggle with prayer.  We forget to pray, and when we remember, we hurry through prayers with hollow words.  Our minds drift, our thoughts scatter like a covey of quail.  Why is this?  Prayer’s effort is so minimal.  No location is prescribed.  No particular clothing is required.  No title or office is stipulated.  Yet, you’d think we were wrestling with a greased pig.
