DAILY PORTION--THAT PLACE BEFORE THE SUN RISES
*that place where & when i seek Him and the Lord draws me near to Him.*
i cherish these early morning times, my Lord wakes me up before the sun begins to rise, before my family begins to rise, before the human noises begin to fill the air with their distracting vibrating sounds that seek to trap as many as possible.
these early, quiet times are all mine to enjoy the abundant and complete spiritual riches that the quiet always has to offer.
early within the sound of quiet, when i can sow into my relationship with my Lord.
that place where i am pulled further away from what my natural eyes see, what my natural ears hear, away from my small thinking, away from all the limited ways.
that place where i quiet myself so i can hear, so i can grow deeper in His purpose for me, so i can be prepared.
*seek Me Early, says the Lord* (Proverbs 8:17 amp) **He Who supplies seed to the sower* (2 Cor 9:10-15 amp)
that place where He leads me ahead of others, to reveal to me what is ahead.
that place where sometimes i am simply to watch and wait,
that place where i can hear who to pray for, who to praise through, to hear what i need to allow Him to correct and realign, what i need to know that i don't know.
that place where i am told what the quiet of His presence has to tell me, so that i am prepared for today's journey and work.
that place where i am divinely encouraged and inspired.
the quiet of the early provides to me a place where i can reflect on where i was, and how far my Lord has brought me.
*my spirit is humbled and grateful. i am full of appreciation and i worship my Lord.*
i can focus on what i need to be doing for this day, making sure i receive my daily portion of Divine guidance so that i accomplish everything He needs me to do today.
*You, my Lord God put shoes on my feet, You have Ordered my steps, i follow You*
(Psalm 37:23; Psalm 32:8 amp)
i can pour out any thoughts, emotions and lack, that can be used to hinder me in my journey for today. acknowledging, sowing them all as seeds unto Him, point blank speaking out the truth, that they creep into my thoughts, and try to gain power over my heart.
i know i can simply let my Lord know, straight forward, no fancy words necessary = "Lord help me with removing these things that seek to steal, kill and destroy, that are in opposition to Your Will for my life, In the name of Jesus, I thank You, Amen!*
*Jesus asked, "what do you want Me to do for you?"*
i can go deep into the visions He has placed in my heart, and remind myself what is really important. remind myself that it does not matter what i don't have, or what i don't know how to do, neither does it matter that i may not know when or how things will get done, all those details do not matter to me.
i am content and at complete peace in the name of Jesus, that God will bring it all to pass.
i am completely convinced that in the name of Jesus, God has Already done and supplied everything that needs to be done and to be supplied to me and my family.
no matter what the "new thing" is that we experience on any day, my first action is to turn to Jesus.
that place where my faith encourages me saying, "as long as I know He has, then i can." i know there's one thing that can block God, and that is a lack of faith.
that is one of the first things i learned, God answers our faith.
if someone does not believe He is, and that He will, then He won't.
*Jesus asked the man, "Are you Sure you want to be Healed?" (John 5:6)*
that place, where i can hear His Love in the quiet speak to my heart, soul and spirit.... dropping wisdom, clarity, correction, revelation, understanding, and renewing all the fruits and the gifts of His Spirit that have to be had, recognized, cooperated with, and allowed to have complete control in and through me, so that i can continue to become who God created me to be.
*When Bartimaeus, the blind beggar, called out to Jesus for help, Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” And the blind man said, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight!” Jesus said, “Go your way; your faith has made you well!” (Mark 10:51-52).*
that place early in the morning where quiet still rules, i go to get my daily healing and give my praise and love to the One who draws me near.
#are you there yet?
#are you on your way?
On feet of Faith & Peace Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Radical Faith.
Isaiah 50:4/Isaiah 52/Jer 20:9-10,11-13/Joshua 1:9/John 4:23
