In all that I ask the Lord for, his reply has been....BE STILL. For me, that means come to him and sit without asking for anything. That means praying and waiting for him to talk to me. It also means that I need to FAST and clear my plate so I can truly hear his voice. This month I am staying off all social media and I am fasting when it comes to junk food. A friend of mine wanted me to explain fasting to her and I told her what I was doing. The first question I asked her was “why do you want to fast”. I explained that I fast for spiritual reasons and I found myself asking “why am I fasting this month”? I now see that I am because I need SILENCE and to hear a word from the Lord.
I have at least two major projects coming up I my life and I have things I simply need clarity on, and the only way I am going to know the exact next move to make it to get quiet before God and listen to him order my life.
I challenge you this month to sit at the feet of God and listen to what he has to say. We are so quick to run to the computer, books, the phone, and or our pastor, and we end up ignoring what God is telling us. I know he has something great in store for you this upcoming season as well, so MAKE time for just you and him so you can really get a full understanding of what he has planned for you. I promise you won’t regret it!
Happy Sunday. I love you! Leave all prayer requests on the prayer request tab or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
