Have you seen the latest trending show on Netflix? Played the new version of the hottest video game on the market? What level are you up to of the newest game on your phone? Are you wearing the current fashions? Do you know what happened to the big Hollywood star?
I am Life and Light in abundance. As you spend time “soaking” in My Presence, you are energized and lightened. Through communing with Me, you transfer your heavy burdens to My strong shoulders. By gazing at Me, you gain My perspective on your life. This time alone with Me is essential for unscrambling your thoughts and smoothing out the day before you.July 1 – “Jesus Calling” by Sara Young
Be willing to fight for this precious time with Me. Opposition comes in many forms: your own desire to linger in bed; the evil one’s determination to distract you from Me; the pressure of family, friends, and your own inner critic to spend your time more productively. As you grow in your desire to please Me above all else, you gain strength to resist these opponents. Delight yourself in Me, for I am the deepest Desire of your heart.
The enemy, the devil, the hater of God, will do anything and everything to distract us! He strives to get us to exit the presence of God. If the pressure of staying up with and knowing the latest doesn’t tempt us, he will often try to insert “drama” into your life.
After all, we don’t want to unwittingly give Satan an opening for yet more mischief—we’re not oblivious to his sly ways! 2 Cor. 2:11 (MSG)
So if you feel left out at the water cooler because you don’t know, haven’t watched, haven’t played, or haven’t heard – rejoice! Perhaps you don’t know because it didn’t come up when hanging out with God, talking to Jesus, or being led by the Holy Spirit.
