It’s so important to have quiet time, before you start your day, and just download to God and get into a space to hear from God.
The Scripture says in 1 Peter 2:9 (ESV)- “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
When the scripture says “You are Chosen” God is VERY AWARE of us and wants to be near us. Another scripture says: James 4:8( NIV)- “Draw near to God and God will draw near to you…” When it says DRAW near by definition it means to come close… How do you “come close to God?” There are different ways for different people.
I know for me Praise & Worship music does that for me… Taking the time in the morning, singing praises to God puts me right in HIS presence. The Morning might not be your time but its gets your day started the right way.
I enjoy doing the work of God but lately I’ve been worried about getting things done and God not coming to my rescue. When that is a very lie from the pit of hell! God has always come through, He is ALWAYS faithful.
My snappiness and not trusting God has come from my lack of putting in time in God’s presence. Demonstrating my trust in God is by sitting quietly in His presence. Putting aside all that is waiting to be done for the day and refusing to worry about anything. Sitting in God’s presence strengths me and prepares me to face whatever the day will bring.
This act of faith, drawing near to God and waiting before working the day is the most effective way to resist evil. This world is complex and over stimulating that you can easily lose your sense of direction. Doing countless unnecessary activities will dissipate your energy, but when you spend time with God, He restores your sense of direction. As we look to God for guidance, he will enable us to do less an accomplish more.
So when you make that decision to make time to get into God’s presence, trying to find good worship music, can be overwhelming, I suggest trying out Higher Vision, praise & worship CD called: For your Kingdom. My favorite Song is: We Cry Holy:
