These posts are simply taken from my daily prayer journal. I find that the words He speaks to me in my private prayer time are usually for others too...

Godly Counsel

In 2 Chronicles 22 Ahaziah becomes king. Verses 3 and 4 tell us, "He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his mother was his counsellor to do wickedly. Wherefore he did evil in the sight of the LORD like the house of Ahab: for they were his counsellors after the death of his father to his destruction."

Godly counsel matters. Who are we listening to? I want to seek His voice first of all, but I also want to follow His leading to wise, godly counsel in my life.

This morning I felt Him telling me, "There's no shortcut to the deep things of the Spirit. Time... I want your time to be spent with Me. I have need of fellowship with you. It's the greatest thing man can give Me. It costs you something. Unhurried time... time to listen and wait on Me.

Deep calleth unto deep... it's so easy for your time to be stolen away. If the enemy can steal your time, he can plant seeds of doubt and discouragement. He knows that time spent with Me empowers you to be a life changer... to go deeper.

Psalm 42:7 "Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of they waterspouts: all thy waves and they billows are gone over me... Verse 11 "Why are thou cast down, O my soul? and why are thou disquieted within me? Hope thou "in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God."

Psalm 95:4 "In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also."

Psalm 107:24 " These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. "

Even in the deep waters of circumstances when trials overwhelm us, He is in the deep as well... even there He is with us, His wonders unfolding.

Ordered Steps

Proverbs 20:24 (Amplified) "Man's steps are ordered by the Lord. How then can a man understand his way?"

Either we believe that or we don't. I want to be Spirit led. It is so easy to get disgruntled when a door closes or something doesn't work out the way we planned. We have to recognize that He knows what's best for us and sometimes that requires some "no's", closed doors or even some waiting.

Giving My Life Away

I know I've neglected my blogging, but our lives are getting back on schedule now with the starting of school and I will start sharing what I have felt Him saying during these past weeks when I didn't take the time to sit down and type it out. He's been really dealing with Me about giving my life away for His cause... losing sight of my desires. I am in no way even close to this, but He keeps reminding me. His whispers to me:

The more you die to self, the more you become alive to what I want to say and do in you and through you. It is then that you allow Me to effortlessly flow through you. You allow Me to interrupt your day and help you effortlessly accomplish the tasks before you.

Always seek to learn of Me. Let that be your only aim. I know all. Learning of Me brings understanding and knowledge in every area of your life.

I long to bring fresh revelation of My Word to you. Seek, listen... be still before Me. Put away condemnation and feelings of inadequacy. Realize who you are in Me and that I need you to be my mouthpiece, My hands, My feet. Conversations that may have seemed pointless to you are divinely led by Me. Speak to strangers. Seeds are always being planted.

I want to give of not only my resources, but of my time to other people. I remember hearing a quote recently that when you give away your time to someone, you are giving them a piece of your life. I want to give freely.
