20 May 07 Journal Entry

Numbers 20:12 (On the heels of Moses striking the rock instead of speaking to it.)
“Because you did not trust in Me enough to honor Me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.”

Stakes are high. The slightest bit of disobedience has such dramatic consequences.

Moses mistake? Unbelief
Uzziah’s mistake? PRIDE
David’s mistake? Lust
Solomon? Idolatry

Lust of the eyes
Lust of the flesh
Pride of life

Nobody is exempt from temptation. No one is too strong to not fall. We are sustained only by grace. I see now more than ever how critical it is to STAY ON MY FACE before God and diligently be alert to the Holy Spirit, especially now that I’m really sold out to knowing Him and carrying out His will.

satan doesn’t like that. I realize he targets people who are doing damage to his empire. I’m not afraid of him. I’m certainly aware of the fact that without Jesus I’m hopeless to stand against him. BUT greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. The battle is the Lord’s.

My greatest enemy: MYSELF. My flesh. Oh God, purge the pride and lust and all other sin from my heart. Make me clean before You! Sustain me, I beg, when I’m faced with temptation!
