Deliver Me From Me..

Look Inside

Jesus taught in prayer, “lead us not into temptation; deliver us from evil.” Jabez in his prayer asked God, “that you would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain.” We pray to be kept from the evil around us, but do you also pray to be kept from the evil within you? The possibility of evil within you, pride/self-promotion, is more detrimental than attack. The evil from the outside is blatant, visible, and has no access to you without your granting it permission to affect you, but your evil doesn’t look for permission in, it’s born within and works inside out. It’s quiet, deceptive and yet at the same time, justified and celebrated. There is no place for pride, no matter how it manifests and how you justify it.

I’m asking God for a personal awakening for each of us, and not masking the responsibility of the individual by praying for a “national or global awakening.” Transformation of mass proportions begin as an individual responsibility. God awaken each to self and in that, deliver me from me that I may not cause pain…
