Hello everyone! How is your day going? Today, I thought I would share with you all a little passage I read out of my daily devotional I am doing right now. It’s called “This Means War” and it is written by Stephen Kendrick, Alex Kendrick, and Troy Schmidt. I am really enjoying it and I hope you all enjoy this little devotional from it. Have a lovely rest of your day!
The Lord advances like a warrior; He stirs up His zeal like a soldier. He shouts, He roars aloud, He prevails over His enemies. -Isaiah 42:13
Most people, if you asked, say they pray. Most people, if asked what area of their spiritual life lacks the greatest, say prayer. So people are praying yet they say they aren’t praying well. What’s wrong?
This is how we communicate with the world there days-in posts, tweets, quick pictures, and emoticons. Prayer for many people is like tossing a tweet to God.
We don’t pray, we give God our status updates.
Is that anyway to talk to the COMMANDER IN CHIEF of the world?
You’re not just talking to a friend (though God is your friend).
You’re not just talking to your parents (though God is your Father).
You’re not just talking to your boss (though God is King).
You’re talking to God who made and rules over the universe.
The God who loves you. And since God loves you, He wants to hear from you. But God doesn’t want a status update.
He wants to hear your heart.
He wants to hear your passion.
He wants to hear about your pain.
He wants to hear your confessions.
He wants you to listen.
He wants you to know Him.
He wants you to grow in faith and worship.
