Keep Clean

"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."  (Luke 21:36)

Take time to cleanse your heart of all dross.  There will come a time when you will be praying all the time.  It will be spontaneous.  You will love to read the Word of God more and more.  It will be honey in your mouth.  You will understand it more and more.  The undercurrent of prayer will be there all the time.  You will be praying while working and walking and talking.  It was so with Jesus.  While he was walking He was praying.  A woman touched him while He was walking.  She was healed immediately.  He was so sensitive and immediately knew it.  Watch and pray always.  Great will be the peace of such men.  If you do not watch and pray you will be going down - down and becoming presumptuous.  Finally a strange spirit takes hold of them and they think it is the spirit of God.  It was so with Saul.  Only a Samuel could discern it.  We should be very careful, each one watching, each one going deeper and each one helping the other.

Presumption is a terrible thing.  We must keep ourselves humble, saying we do not know anything.  In all our ways we should acknowledge Him.  This is not easy.  We should not be wise in our own eyes.  As you become richer and richer in your spiritual life, you will become a greater and greater blessing to others.

When we deviate from God's will presumptuously we will sin more and more.  We will become proud.  But if you are praying always, you will begin to pray the mind of Christ.  Even in your dreams, you will draw nigh unto God.  You will enjoy great peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.  Now people are continuing in ungodliness because there are no persons to demonstrate this kind of life.  But when you begin to build the Kingdom of God with clean hands and a pure heart with no vanity in you, God will build you.
