So God can share what He would say To help us find that narrow way
And then we can't imagine why
The Lord would fail to even try To calm our hearts or meet our need For which come to Him and plead
But would we treat a friend this way Expecting them to sit and stay While we share all we have to say Then up and simply walk away
Without the slightest thought for them To share in turn a thought akin To something we might need to hear Or burdens that might need our tears
And yet we have the privilege To sit before the tutelage Of Him Who made all living things And through His mercy brings those things
That are so pertinent to life And guidance through this present strife To give us strength and sure advice And help us more to trust in Christ
For He has shown throughout His Word He will not stop or be detoured From meeting every heart felt need And help us by His grace succeed
So now before you hurry on To speak some words and rush along Upon the path of life you see And try to meet your self-served need
Why don't you take the time to stay Upon your knees to hear God say The words you need to hear the most As spoken by His Holy Ghost
And lay your heart before His feet And rest to watch and see Him meet Your need as only He can do Revealing God's great love for you
And then from there you'll have a plan To share God's love for every man Because you've come to know His will Through taking time and being still Inspiration taken from Psalm 46:10, 11 (Google image and emphasis added)
Father, when I take the time to pray, I ask for Your help to make it a profitable time. May I be sensitive to Your Voice, to listen to what it is You're directing me for the day at hand. Help me to be still long enough to notice Your presence, and to hear the words I so desperately need to hear, that You love me, and that You're guiding me today. I ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
Today’s Bible verse:Ps. 16:1"Preserve me, O God, for in thee do I trust." Today’s quote:Dr. Charles F. Stanley - When you can't understand God's ways, focus on His perfect knowledge, wisdom, and power rather than the magnitude of your sorrow. Remember, He sees the entire picture and loves you more than you can imagine. This is a time to walk by faith, as perfect understanding comes only in heaven."(Taken from IN TOUCH Daily Readings for Devoted Living, July 2015)
Some thoughts today: Is God in charge of your life? He wants to guide you through each day. His plans are not going to fail. - The issue when we get to heaven, is not what we've done, but if we've been obedient to what He's asked us to do. - Obedience today, brings peace tomorrow. 23rd- Tuesday's post:#73 Remitting the Sins of Nations C.
