Wise Up

James 1:13-17

​When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;  but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.  Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters.  Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

​It seems as though  there is  just too  much to do. They all want a bit of me.   Or am I just too full of my own self importance and I am  just kidding myself.  Help me come  before you and examine myself.  By your spirit do a work in me.

Help me to pace myself today please Father. You can see that I can’t  keep  going like this.  I start off spiriting but just  run out of energy and it gets me.  Please show me  how  to  wise up.  Remind me that you were never in a hurry, that you embraced interruptions. 

Lord,  I  know that when I’m  weary  the  devil  gets a foot-hold.  Help  me  please to  wise up , I sense  he’s making inroads and  I want to resist.  Let me  see that you are so  much more, that  in  you  I have the victory.

Lord I  call  on your  name, the  name of Jesus, the author and finishers of  my  faith. 

Amen
