quiet time 7/12/22

(I JOHN 5:21 - Little children, keep yourselves from idols.)


Lord, what are You telling me here?


Abide in Me, My child, the Way is straight,
And do not be distracted by the waves.
The enemy would seek to agitate,
With idols so designed to sire slaves.
Such simple things as random idle thought
Can pull you from the union we enjoy.
Take captive every introspective jot,
Discarding all that seeks to steal your joy.
Keep focused on the love I have for you.
Remember I affirmed you from the start,
And as My child, all Spirit’s gifts are true.
You’re always in My thoughts and in My heart.
	Whatever draws your gaze away from Me
	Are nothing more than idols and debris.


Lord, how do I apply this in my life?


I’ve given you an arsenal to wield
Against the wily plans that Satan plies.
The scriptures are the sword that I revealed
To counter with the truth against his lies.
Remember that you’re righteous through and through,
And in this revelation you are safe.
Your faith’s a mighty shield to thus subdue
The fiery darts the enemy will strafe.
Renew your mind – this you should always do
As you are being formed into my Son.
The transformation process brings you to
The realization that we all are one.
	When you seek first the Kingdom and the King,
	The idols of this world no longer cling.
