Good morning friends!
After a quiet Easter Sunday and a Saturday filled with good energy, yesterday was a day to spiritually and physically rest. This morning we are back! So grab your cup of coffee or tea and cozy up with the Lord on this beautiful morning!
Today's scripture tells us...
When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My Face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there. ~ 2 Chronicles 7:13-16
This teaches us that we must let go of our own ways, to let go of our own control and of our own outcome. When we turn to the Lord, obey Him, and live fully in His glory, then we will always be forgiven. This also talks about His Temple- meaning His Church. Always know that you are the church, not only the church dwelling place, but His people are also the church. God hears every single prayer that we pray. He sees every tear that falls down our face. He hears the cries of our hearts. BUT God has never gone anywhere, He is always right there beside you, all you have to do is be still and quiet enough to hear Him.
We can take this into our days by continually surrendering our hearts and lives to God. When we surrender control, when we allow God to come into our lives, we open the doors and windows to God and life changes. Negative emotions begin to disappear, our hearts are broken from the stone around it, and miracles begin to happen everywhere. What was once seen as a coincidence is now a God-sighting or what I like to call a God-Incidence. Pray scary prayers. Pray powerful prayers. BUT NOT ONLY IN CHURCH. Be a living and breathing asset of God every single day, not just on Sundays! You are a daughter/son of The Most High King. Now go be that person EVERY SINGLE DAY!
I hope this serves you with insight and a flicker of hope that God loves you so very dearly. Go forth today in God's love and be the vessel of Him that you are!
