KEEP ON PRAYING
“Always be joyful. Pray regularly. In everything give thanks, for this is what God wants from you who are united with the Messiah Yeshua.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Complete Jewish Bible)
“You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13, NASB)
Bob Fitts, a worship leader and a YWAM (Youth With A Mission) contact, sings a song entitled “Keep on Praying”(Hosanna!Music/Integrity Music). Sticking the ear buds in, listening to his melodic voice and then getting my eyes fixed on the Lord, seated on His majestic throne, sure gets the day started right.
I can just feel my faith spirit rise up within me as the song calls out to keep on praying for family, friends, work, Israel, our own country and friends in other nations. Encouragement to keep on pressing on comes, as refreshment comes through the music He shares.
The Holy Spirit Himself, Ruach HaKodesh, enjoys connecting with us, drawing us daily to the Father and Son through the communion of prayer.
Often He will wake me up and politely ask me if I want to get together with Him. Sometimes I resist, for sleep is pleasant too, but more than not I respond, get up, and meet with the Lord. In the quiet of the night, before the sun breaks over the Carolina horizon, He speaks to my heart. Words of encouragement. Insights into the coming days. Prophetic words to share with others.
Those who long to be where the Lord is, seeking Him as He leads us on, will find He is near. When we think He is far away, inattentive to the on goings in the nations, we will find that He is passionately involved. His Spirit is speaking to people through dreams in the night, visions during the day, and soft words of love as they go about their normal routines. He is calling out, as the Shepherd watching over His sheep. He wants to save the people. He is the God of Love.
Protection. Provision. Providence. All good things come from Him. Our faith level rises when we spend time to know Him, and learn of His ways.
My prayer today, as I seek His heart for that which matters most to Him, and thus more and more so to me also, is as follows. Make it your prayer today too.
“Lord, I will bow to you and to no other God. I will seek Your face. I will follow hard after You, to hear Your voice. Today You are the joy and the peace that only You can put in my heart. Thank you Lord for Your love, for Your presence, for Your care and provision for my family, friends, co-workers, and those you have connected me to in the nations.”
And yes Lord, thank You for our daily bread!
