Time Alone With God

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor;  he has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God;

To comfort all who mourn,  to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:1-3

Time with GodTime alone with God has a divine purpose.

We set time aside for hair appointments, doctor and dentist appointments and they seem so important that we schedule them even months in advance.  However, time alone with God is where the real change takes place.

During our time alone with God, we are forgiven, released, refreshed, and renewed.  In the presence of God, we are healed, encouraged, restored and transformed.  A divine exchange takes place: beauty is given for ashes, strength for weakness and joy for mourning.  This divine exchange can only happen as you commit to spend time alone with God.

Worship Me and Watch Me Work

H02C0095This morning as I sat with the Lord in a quite time, He showed me the key that will solve every problem and conquer every fear.

As I was praying for strength, wisdom, guidance and direction for the day, the sun began to rise. When the first ray of sunlight hit my face I heard the Lord’s voice, “just worship Me.” At that moment all the concerns I had for myself and others were gone as the Lord said, “Worship Me and Watch Me Work.”

My prayer for wisdom ceased.

My prayer for strength was fulfilled.

My prayer for guidance and direction was answered.

I realized the troubles of our life take all our attention; they even take our attention away from worshiping the Lord during our quiet time.

Lift your heart to the Lord, worship Him and watch Him work.  He has promised He will work all things out for your good, so trust Him.

“…Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord which He will show to you today.” Exodus 14:13 KJV.
