I love the Father, my Abba, my Papa.
However, sometimes I miss hearing from Him. Yes, sometimes He is quiet. But more often than not I am too busy to listen.
I have said and still believe that being busy with life in general is the most incredible tool that the enemy uses against us. And it is easy to fall prey to it because we are “accomplishing” things…doing what needs to be done…being productive.
Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.“
“It has to get done and I am the only one to do it!” I have suffered from that attitude for years. I am learning….
This morning the Father spoke so clearly to me.
Take your Problems….and Practice His Presence, Peace, Plan and Purpose.
HIS Presence is always there…
HIS Peace is always available…
HIS Purpose is always a comfort…
HIS Plan is always perfect….
I have to ask myself…why do I fight that? Why do I know that, yet not “practice” it?? It is a simple really. Deception. I buy into the fact that I have to do these other things that are more important!
If I don’t know His word, the depth of His love for me and the perfect peace He can give…how can I ever have victory and contentment? Simply put…I cannot.
Philippians 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
PROBLEMS? PRACTICE His PRESENCE & PEACE & PLANS & PURPOSE
