DIVE IN FIRST

‘ The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.’ Isaiah 58:11 NIV
There are certainly days when I lean more towards the sun- scorched land and the bubbling spring is nothing more than a mirage taunting me in the distance. You know those days, nothing seems to be going right! The universe is sinisterly plotting against you, cutting you off at every turn. In surrender, you throw up your hands. It’s just going to be one of those days ! Giving defeat the upper hand.
How did I begin the day….was He my first thought, my first conversation ?
Guaranteed my to do list and yesterday’s challenges and failures slipped in ahead of my time with Him.
He promises to give me the strength to last the day, the energy to face what-ever and wisdom to choose wisely.
So if you are having ‘one of those days’, it’s okay to throw up your hands, not in surrender to defeat but in declaration of His goodness, soaking up his life giving water that never fails to quench and sustain , and tomorrow…dive into His presence first.
‘Prayer is to the spirit what breath is to the body. We treat prayer as though it were the spice of life, but the Bible prescribes it as a vital staple in our diet.’ -David Hubbard

  1. I find your honesty so refreshing Leeanne and it’s very True what you shared, Prayer that is empowered by The Holy Spirit is in accordance to God’s will so it is very powerful. Jesus said we don’t have because we don’t ask , when we ask for His wisdom which we were not Born with and we ask for The Holy Spirit, we receive them that is God’s promise and we are then empowered to make lasting changes for good in our own lives and in others, as we choose to walk in The Fruit of The Spirit.

    Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?

    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding

    James 1:5-6 If any of you lack wisdom, let them ask of God, that giveth to all liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given them. But let them ask in faith, nothing wavering. For them that wavereth are like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

    I wrote a message about wisdom, I will leave a link for you Leeanne, perhaps you may have time to enjoy it’s focus, I hope that is OK with you, I find leaving links means my comments have less wordage, because I also add Scripture they can be longer then most.
