In many areas of the country we are having a heat wave and a drought…I have prayed for a few people about how it is affecting their crops and lifestyle…
The other day when I received a request about this, something hit my spirit…the heat and the lack of rain…I believe it is spiritually connected. I believe when we see the heat subside and the rain begin we will also see things change in our natural lives – I believe we are literally in the ‘heat’ of the battle spiritually – and it feels like a dry, drought land, but I also believe …if we cry out to God things will change…what do you think?
In preparing for tomorrow’s motivation I had to do some deep soul searching…my question to you today is ‘do you feel you have any strongholds in your mind?’ and if so, what will you do about them?’ Most of us who have served God for a long time believe we don’t have strongholds. However, if we are not seeing His promises manifest consistently you should ask God why you are not seeing them. That’s what I did and He began to show me strongholds in my thinking…don’t you just love that!
I was just wondering if any of you are sensing anything going on in the spirit right now, if so, can you share what you are feeling?
Yesterday the Lord asked me a question: what is stopping people from being their best? I pondered this question for an entire day.
What do you think you are not being your best at? And what is stopping you?
I want to commend all of you on your committment to the 30 day challenge…God is doing something…I can sense hope in situations today that I didn’t yesterday.
I want to remind you that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ – if you missed a day – it’s okay – just pick up and keep going the next day. God loves every minute He spends with you and there is no reason for guilt if you miss a day!
Be Blessed and Enjoy the Journey
I am hearing wonderful things about the 30 minute challenge – and it seems the most difficult part is still sitting still for 15 – I totally understand. I want to share something with you that one of our participants wrote today concerning her time with God and what He spoke to her:
“Be still and know that I am God…I know the plans I have for you and I will reveal them to you as you seek me. They are plans for your good, to give you a future and a hope…I am coming soon. Very, very soon. So much sooner than this world thinks. Things will begin happening and you are to know that I am the Lord God that will deliver my people, they shall not be destroyed. They will overcome in every situation. They will shine brightly and draw the world to me. My coming is on the horizon. Look for it, and rest in the knowledge that you are safe in me.”
I have had a few emails today about our challenge and the discipline of quieting your mind for 15 minutes. To ‘be still’ is my most difficult part – but it is in the silence that we will find strength and refreshing…keep trying.
Today is day one of our thirty day challenge. I know many of you have already spent your 30 minutes worshipping God and sitting quietly before Him. I was awaken at 4:30am this morning and spent my time with God then – it is like Chuck Pierce said in his prophecy – God is wanting our nighttimes. At least that is what has been happening with me for the past several days, since Thursday morning of last week.
This morning the Lord said that I would ‘see a difference today’ I dont’ know exactly what that means – and there was one other thing He spoke to me but it was quite personal.
I hope you enjoyed your time with God – the next 30 days are going to be an adventure!
