Challenge Yourself

Today’s Word is: Complacent pleased, especially with oneself or one’s merits, advantages, situation, etc., often without awareness of some potential danger or defect; self-satisfied.

Matthew 25:1-13 tells a story of 10 virgins who camped out waiting for the bridegroom. 5 had planned for the occasion, taking extra oil for their lamps. 5 were self-satisfied.

Luke 24:49, 500 were given the promise of power but only 120 (Acts 2) were committed to partner with the Promise until they received power from on high.

Which group do you fit in with? Satisfied with what you have and where you are, or desperate enough to stay and pray until you get what you’re expecting? Easy or hard? Complacent or desperate?

I’m taking inventory of my life, my attitude and my hunger level. This is not a game to me, it’s my life and the outcome depends on my ability to trust in the One who is in me. So if I appear to be overly focused on the task at hand, please understand that I’m in it to win. The oil I have remains full because of the time I spend in the Word and prayer. I don’t fast 6 days and fill up on Sunday, I fill up each day and party and feast on Sunday.

I know this is a challenging word. You don’t have to ‘like’ it, but I hope that when you read it, your self satisfaction turns into desperation for Holy Fire that never burns out.
