You Can’t Blow Jesus Smoke in a Closed Room

One, just one, but definitely one of the great benefits of private prayer is that you can’t hide from your motives. In corporate prayer, we can sound like “all that”. We can blow Jesus smoke like nobody’s bizness in a crowd but, get alone with Him, and He won’t let you get away with the fake stuff. Try blowing Jesus smoke in your prayer closet and you’ll cough on it every time. Truth? That penetrating gaze of His hurts, but afterwards, it never fails to heal.

Can I get a witness?

Hugs,

    However, I’ve found it so refreshing to just be honest with him…even if I’m telling Him my motives aren’t pure but I want them to be! He’s faithful to listen AND answer!
