Thoughts for the Day: Be of sober spirit, be on the alert.

Monday, August 17, 2009

1 Peter 5:8. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert.
Your Adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Distinguishing between dangerous solitariness and productive solitude.
*Scripture taken from the NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE, Copyright 1960, 1962, 1963, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, 1977, 1995, by the Lockman Foundation.*
No believer is exempted by trials and temptations. Trials are intended to make us grow by refusing to fall into sin. Trials are God's invitation to win over our weakness and problems. Temptations, on the other hand, are Satan's invitation to sin. He wants us to solve our problems our way so that God does not get the honor. Trials and temptations usually deal with the same thing or issue. A person who has become so desperate about life and wants to kill himself is undergoing a TRIAL (God wants him to overcome his suicidal thoughts) and a TEMPTATION (Satan says - get it over with so you can rest). Trials are of verying degrees from the slightly tempting to the overwhelmingly tempting. the best case study about temptation is in Matthew 4 and Luke where Satan himself, the MAIN GUY in tempter (he is called the TEMPTER) attempted to make the Lord Jesus do someting that was clearly not in accord with the Father's will. There is so much that we can learn from this encounter between the Lord Jesus and the Tempter.
Luke 4:1
And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by devil. And He ate nothing during thoses days; and when they had ended, He became hungry. 3 And the devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread." 4 And Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'Man shall not live on bread alone." 5 And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, "I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I will give it to whomever I wish." 7 "Therefore if You worship before me, is shall be all Yours." 8 And Jesus answered and said to him, "It is written, You shall worship the Lord your God and serve Him only". 9 And he led Him to Jerusalem and he had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here; 10 for it is written, 'He will give His angels charge concerning You to guard You, 11 and, 'On their hands they will bear You up, Lest You strike Your foot against a stone.' " 12 And Jesus answered and said to him, "It is said, 'You shall not put the Lord your God to the test." 13 And when the devil had finished every temptation, he departed from Him until an oppotune time.
PART 1: Satan's favorite timing with regards to TEMPTATION:
SATAN'S FAVORITE TIME TO TEMPT US: WHEN WE FIND OURSELVES ALONE. Hoping to find us helpless and defenseless, Satan waits until we are alone and then begins to tempt us. This is what he did to the Lord Jesus.

Luke 4:1 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by devil. And He ate nothing during thoses days; and when they had ended, He became hungry.
Jesus had been in the wilderness for forty days and forty nights. He was really alone. Because He was alone, Satan need not worry about any interference from others. The record in Matthew seems to indicate that Jesus faced Satan's temptation at the end of the forty days. Luke, however, tells us an important part of the story: SATAN TEMPTED TO BRING DOWN JESUS THROUGH TEMPTATION FOR FORTY DAYS.
As soon as Jesus was alone, and Satan saw that He was alone, he worked on Jesus to divert the attention of Jesus from the purpose of His fasting to see the special offer that Satan was presenting to him. Day one, Satan saw that Jesus was alone. Satan started right away. Second Day, Jesus was still alone, Satan was there again. Every single day of the forty days that Jesus was in the wilderness, Satan bombarded Him with temptations. The nature of the temptation, the special offer may have been the same, but the frequency was based on the fact that Jesus was alone.
At any time we are alone, and the solitude is not used properly, Satan comes into the picture and confronts us with all kinds of temptations, all the purpose of driving us to submission to his will and not God's will. Remember what God has said in Genesis? It is not good for man to be alone. There is one thing we can do to help each other avoid dangerous solitariness which is different from productive solitude.
A dose of GOD'S word and teaching a day will surely lead us to the right track and path.
make it a habit to draw our lives near closer to God for surely we may experience a better life with Him.
God bless you all and have a great sunday.
more devotional teachings to be posted daily for may we be enlightened through the days that may pass by.

oo napadaan lang talaga ako. napadaan sa isipan ko na kelangan ko na nga pala i-update ang page ko. hmmmm. ano naman kaya ang sasabihin ko? ah oo eto nga.. hay problemado akong feeling ko eh dapat ko deadmahin na lamang pero ang hirap kasi eh. haha. natataokt naman ako kasi baka hindi ko magustuhan ang resulta.. huhuhu.

lately siguro 1 or 1 1/2 weeks ko na ito nararamdaman. kasi para bang may nakabara na kung ano sa lalamunan ko na kasabay nito eh  nahihirapan ako tuwing ako ay nagi-inhale. huhuhu. kapag ng eexhale ako dapat naman malakas ang buga ko para marelieve yung discomfort feeling. huhuhu. di ko malaman kung related lang ba eto sa stress dahil sa ngayon ay naghahanda ako para sa isang upcoming nursing exam o sadyang meron ba akong sakit. parang ang feeling ko saka lang siya marerelieve kapag sinusubukan ko madual (pero mind you ha.. hindi ako nagiinduce ng pagduduwal using my finger ha. di ako bulimic!) anyway yun nga.. feeling ko marerelieve siya kapag naduwal ako or nagsuka ako. huhuhu. ang weird nga ng episode attacks niya kasi mawawala tapos ilang minutes babalik ulit siya.

natatakot naman ako magpatingin sa doctor baka kasi may serious underlying cause nitong discomfort feeling na naeexperience ko sa ngayon. wah! baka mamaya eh kelangan na pala ako maoperahan.. katakot! (o diba.. sadyang matitigas tlaga ang ulo ng mga medically inclined na tao eh palibhasa alam kasi ang mga procedures na gagawin eh. hahaha!) hayz.. siguro saka ako magpapatingin kung kasama ko na si boyfriend. hehe. at kapag may time na ako at di na sa panahong busy ako sa pagaaral ko....

yun lang naman. nais  ko lang ishare ang mga pangyayari sa buhay ko lately. teehee.. 


ang nclex ay isang hindi birong exam

totoo ang iyong nabasang title. mahirap talaga lalo na kung tulad ko na 3 taon na nakalipas nang makagraduate at maging lesinsiyado sa propesyong nursing eh muli ulit nagaaral para lang marefresh sa dating mga subject na pinagaralan ko nung ako ay nagaaral pa. ang pakiramdam ko tuloy kahit panay ang aral ko eh walang pumapasok sa utak ko. siguro sa tuwing nageexam ako tensiyonado lang ata ako tuwing kami ay may post test. hay, para ka ring doctor pala kapag nagtrabaho ka na as nurse sa states kasi talagang dapat alam na alam mo pati ang laboratory results ng pasiyente mo na ubod ng dami. hindi tulad dito sa pilipinas na kahit siguro alam mo ang mali sa resulta ng lab test eh kapag kinontradict mo o pinangunahan mo ang doctor pwede rin nagsuggest ka lang sa pwedeng gawin treatment para sa pasyente eh magagalit sila sayo dahil ang tingin nila eh minamaliit mo ang kakayahan nila bilang doctor. 

hay, naloloka ako kasi nagaaral ulit ako. sa tuwing nagpopost test na kami at the end ng pagkahaba habang lecture at pagkadami daming diseases at kung anu ano pang sakit ang diniscuss eh nalilimutan ko na. kundi naman kadalasan ay may time pressure pa! hay hay hay! naloloka na talaga ako. 

sana naman itong pagaaral na ginagawa kong ito eh sana kahit papaano may nareretain sa utak ko. huhuhu. tapos sat and sun may trabaho pa ako sa hospital. sana naman sa sabado walang kaso msyado. hay.

yun lang. napadaan lang ako kasi namiss ko ang blog eh. hahaha! sobrang ilang days o week na ata to nang huli ako sumulat dito. o siya.

first post for the year 2009

this is indeed my first post for the year 2009.

and as what we normally do... we greet each and everyone else a... 

anyway, i celebrated my new year in the hospital since we had an agreement that each staff nurses should sacrifice one holiday and give way to others who have plans of celebrating christmas or new year with their love ones. since i was on an off duty during the christmas season, i had to report to work on a new year and that was great for me since i don't literally celebrate it since i rejoice on these holidays occasions on my own. but that is fine with me. i get to feel very independent during these seasons. hahaha! 

for this year i have written down on my planner my new years resolution and i have only written like 6 resolutions. i guess i don't really have to write them down here and keep them all to myself. hahaha! 

well i don't really have anything to say as of the moment. i just want to greet all bloggers out there a PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.. 

take care reader!
