A few hours ago I spent time with my BFF’s from Bible study. Today was the last day before the summer break. These girls are my “home girls.” They see the good, bad and ugly in me and love me anyway.
I also love them with all of my heart. The study concluded with a powerful video by Priscilla Shirer, Discerning the Voice of God.
Recognizing God’s voice in our life is what we all want. Without the Lord’s direction we would be lost and broken people. However, sometimes I wonder if you are like me? I don’t always hear clearly the voice of the Lord. Why is that?
I have one word: OBEDIENCE
In the years I have walked with the Lord, He has always been faithful and provided direction. He has taken me from one plateau to the next…. Each one, more fantastic and supernatural than the last. So, when I find myself surrounded by silence or stuck, I must turn my eyes inward. There is usually an area of obedience that I have yet to surrender.
Today in Bible study we prayed that THIS DAY would be the day we surrender that one thing, the thing that needs to go so God can move in us and through us this summer. Will you do the same?
Lord, I have held onto this thing. I have heard you say, “Lynn (insert your name), get rid of it. I will wait as long as it takes.” Oh Lord, let today be that day. I want to be part of your plan this summer. I want to see new horizons and the fantastic surprises you have waiting for me. Lord, today, I surrender it to you. Do not let me ever take it back. Bind the enemy who will tempt me and protect me from this sin. When I feel weak, Lord surround me with the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. I ask all this in the powerful name of Jesus, my Redeemer. Amen.
As you think about your Thankful Thursday post, consider your heart. Write about obedience or hearing the voice of God. Be Blessed, Lynn
Also, I must apologize because I did not make it around to visit everyone. Please forgive me. Mr. Linky went crazy and would not work. I think the owner of Mr. Linky has fixed the problem for this week. I am praying over it. So leave your link and I can’t wait to read your posts.
