For what purpose has God called me?
Have you pondered the question?
He has imputed His righteousness so that we might be able to approach the Father’s holiness. Have you taken advantage?
Prayer. A commonly used word that is often missunderstood for sheer over use of it. I would like to redefine it today in the context of your life.
Prayer- a gateway into the passion filled heaven-bound kingdom of the presence of God.
The false definition is that prayer is a destination that one can go to and leave. No, prayer is a door to interacting with the presence of God. It is nothing to be good at like a sport.
Prayer is a way of life… in fact it is the ideal way of life.
Prayer is where we receive guidance in our lives. It is where we collapse in the presence of Our Father so that He can relieve us of the burdens that we carry. But despite the temptation, prayer does not stop there. There is more, there is purpose, there is fulfillment yet to be had.
We hear the instruction there and receive relief from our burdens- to live out the instruction we have been given.
The 15 minutes or 2 hours that you spend in the prayer place propels us to fulfill the lives He has created us for. The way to be prayerful through those days is to be obedient to His instructions.
As we dunk our whole lives in prayer we find ourselves in the midst of many activities and responsibilities that have the potential to overwhelm us. This is a sign of the greatness that we can accomplish through Christ. This is not the place to worry or fear, but to rejoice in the accomplishment of living prayerful.
When living submerged in the council of God you can bet you will be places that you would never imagine. But, if you think really hard you will discover that this is actually good for you and fulfilling. The stress that you endure is worthwhile stress because it is God who has led you their.
Who are you living to please? Is it yourself? Is it your spouse? Your boss?
Why not live to please God?
He is not far off or distant in any way.
He is present in such a way that He will make His will know to you if you ask. He doesn’t ask of you more that you are able to give. But what you do give He will honor and make it worth your while.
So today, May the sacrifice of a willing heart be the only sacrifice you see God needs. May your token offerings be kept to yourself and may the depths of your heart begin to be opened up to the one who made it.
