Anybody ever get so busy, so tired, so blah that they don’t read the word, don’t study can’t pray. Yup, me too🙏🏽 Not only can’t read, can’t pray either so you begin to beat yourself up because you know that God’s word is the only thing that can save, that can heal, that can restore and that can redeem. You know this but you’ve gotten tired, your spirit is low and you don’t know where to begin. You know you need to pray and no words come. Yeah, me too.🙋🏽
Do you look at yourself and think, I love God so much, I can’t live my life without him? Do you ever look at what you’ve been through and how you know that you know that you know it was God who brought you out, God who opened the door, God who moved that person out of your life, God who made a way when all was lost? Yet here we are, lost in Christ. 😳
I’m just being transparent this morning, how can it be that I trust God, I really really do, yet I seem to have gotten tired, discouraged and lost ( that’s the only word that kept coming in my mind) in my prayers? In my fasting? In my spirit?
I don’t know how this has happened so I started where I left off, I opened the word and God in his faithfulness showed me this:
“God already knows our deepest thoughts. And he understands what the Spirit is saying, because the Spirit speaks for his people in the way that agrees with what God wants.”Romans 8:27 ERVhttp://bible.com/406/rom.8.27.erv
“Also, the Spirit helps us. We are very weak, but the Spirit helps us with our weakness. We don’t know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit himself speaks to God for us. He begs God for us, speaking to him with feelings too deep for words.”Romans 8:26 ERVhttp://bible.com/406/rom.8.26.erv
Y’all, A shout goes right here! 🙌🏽 God didn’tgive me a pass, he showed me mercy. The word of God showed me that he got me, he knows me.
“Lord, you have tested me, so you know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts from far away. You know where I go and where I lie down. You know everything I do. Lord, you know what I want to say, even before the words leave my mouth. You are all around me—in front of me and behind me. I feel your hand on my shoulder. I am amazed at what you know; it is too much for me to understand. Your Spirit is everywhere I go. I cannot escape your presence.”Psalms 139:1-7 ERVhttp://bible.com/406/psa.139.1-7.erv
And after reading that, all I can say is Thank you Lord, in Jesus name I Pray, Amen.
