Do you ever wake up knowing it is going to be a great day because the sun is out and God is good? Something about the name Jesus can get your blood pumping to the start of a good day. My real question is, why do we not wake up with this spirit every morning?
Our restless hearts make us forget that all we have to do is call upon the name of Jesus, and he is listening. Humbling ourselves every morning with prayer and praise can instantly bring peace to our entire day. I want to encourage everyone to start a challenge of Prayer. For the month of February, every morning when you awake– PRAY!
If your days have seemed to drag or maybe you feel as if there is not enough hours in the day– PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! The Lord hears all of our prayers and he is often waiting for us to just stop all of our business and ask him for help through his Holy Spirit. I found myself telling a co-woker just the other day “I just feel like there is not enough time in the day.” The Lord quickly reminded me of 2 Peter 3:8. This verse quickly reassured me that in the Kingdom of The Lord, time is meaningless– so why was I worried about it here on earth? It can be somewhat effortless for our minds to start worrying first thing in the morning when we awake, which leads to worry throughout the day. What time do I have to be there? How much money is in my account? What is my schedule like today, tomorrow, next week. All of these things play a role in our everyday life– but God does not intend for us to wake up worrying about them, or even worrying about them at all for that matter. If we can start every morning with prayer and thanksgiving God will undoubtedly lead our day with his anointing and strength for whatever life has for us. God is faithful and loves to hear our prayers. Prayer is truly meaningful to Jesus– there is power in every prayer. Let God have the opportunity to lead your day!
If you have a prayer that you would like an extra person praying for, I would love to pray with you.
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” 2 Peter 3:8
Glory to God
