I saw a post on Instagram and I am going to share with you what it said (I may even repost it one of these days!):
“What would the church look like if our whole desire was to attract the Holy Spirit instead of people?”
Powerful thought isn’t it?
It wasn’t too long ago, that I told the Lord how much I wanted him to move here at Apsley Community Chapel! I was praying earnestly for our church and the different people and families represented there, and I said, “Lord I want a move of your spirit here!” To which God replied: “How badly do you want it?”
Now, I love it when the spirit of God speaks to me, but that time it pulled me up short! How badly indeed? What sacrifices am I willing to make? How early will I rise and pray…and for how long??
I understand that it’s not because of my works that I obtain righteousness, but I am convinced that your desire for God is reflected quite accurately by the time we spend with Him!
Don’t get me wrong, one scripture meditated on all day long can change your situation, but again it’s you putting the Word to work in your life, meditating on that word, thinking about it all day long, not flippantly pulling a scripture card out of a plastic loaf of bread (I used to have one of those!) and then forgetting what you read five minutes later!
The last thing I ever want to do is be condemning, because I know how busy life can be, but…
Plan God into your schedule just like you do your meals, your sports, or any other activity, then let him infiltrate your activities all day long!!!
Be encouraged this week!! God has a good plan for you!! Jeremiah 29:11
We love you and are praying for you and standing with you!
Jesus is Lord!
