Late Night Text

Late night phone calls, text messages or knocks on the door are not something many of us want to receive, especially as a parent. Last night one of my best friends sent me a late night text and she simply stated, “miss you. love you. praying.” My first thought was, “Why is she up so late praying?” But instinctively I knew why. I started praying also and within minutes God answered our prayers. (He has always been faithful to answer this particular prayer).

This is how the Body of Christ is meant to operate. That we are so attuned to HIS voice and desire nothing more than to be obedient to His call.

It is our responsibility to take care of God’s House first, so when can experience healing, deliverance, and grow in the knowledge of the power that lives within us. To grasp onto this overwhelming truth that the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in each believer, who has called on the Name of the Lord Jesus, as their Lord and Savior.

Precious Ones, please, I can’t encourage you often enough, stay connected to Jesus through practicing spiritual disciplines of reading and studying his word, prayer, praise and worship. Yes, we are no longer under the laws of the Old Testament, and, yes, we are covered by the love and grace of the New Testament, but that doesn’t mean we, “throw the baby out with the bath water.” How are we to disciple one another, let alone a lost and hurting world, if we’re not connected daily and consistently to The Vine? This is not to make you feel badly about what your time with God currently looks like, rather, encouragement to ask God how he wants your time with him to look. I can guarantee you it will include being in His word.

Your soul craves His word.

Precious One, feed your soul.

Shalom!
