Slow down and stop running.
This is what I hear the Father saying today. He’s been talking to my heart lately about the things I do to refresh myself. He’s been daring me to find out if spending time with Him could be better than picking up a book or flipping on the television. I’m being honest here – I’ve spent most of my life finding rest for my soul in a plate of nachos and a good book. I love the Lord and I love spending time with Him, but I think this may be one more wall in my brain that needs to be torn down. Early in the morning and last thing at night seem like natural times to seek the Lord, but there are lots of times throughout my day when I turn in other directions for rest and relaxation. Still…there’s that quiet voice in my heart saying “What if you turned to Me instead?” What if I found relationship with Him on a whole new level when I let Him into all of my day?
Abba – my loving Father God, Jesus – most faithful Friend and Lord, Holy Spirit – Comforter and Helper to You I pray. Please help me believe You to be this big in my life! Please help me trust You to be all I need all day. Please help me be brave enough to lay down my crutches and really walk with you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
