Can We Talk – Homework Week #3, Day #3

Secret Idols. Ouch. My study of Ezekiel 8:9-12 prompted a conversation with the Lord on the way to work about recognizing things that I allow to take His place in my life. It branched into a discussion of sinful things that “lurk” in the dark places of my heart, hiding from the light, deliberately looking for an opportunity to catch me by surprise and POUNCE! It reminded me of the scripture that teaches us that the enemy is prowling around for us like a lion, waiting for the moment to attack us.

I prayed that I would not become the enemy’s prey. I asked that God would make me alert so that I would not fall into any traps or be caught by surprise. It made me realize that, if I stay close to Jesus, His light will illuminate everything in my path and the enemy will have no place to hide. So I am coming to You, Lord, to ask that You would fill me with tenacity to spend time with You and maintain that connection. Give me a hunger and a thirst for more of You. In Christ’s wonderful name. Amen.
