You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3
It can be challenging to keep your mind focused on God and His Word, especially when a tornado of thoughts and circumstances are swirling around you. Sometimes there is just so much to do that I hold up my hands and loudly proclaim, “THAT’S ENOUGH! I CAN’T DO THIS! I NEED HELP!”
And the louder the noise around me screaming for attention, the harder it is to adjust the volume so I can hear God speaking. I’m pretty sure I’ve missed Him on more then one occasion simply because of the distractions around me. I don’t like that! I don’t like missing opportunities to minister or encourage those around me because of things like that. How many distractions will I allow to keep Gods voice out of my ears? Life gets so busy and crowds out the most important thing, His voice.
When was the last time you heard Him speak to you? Even to whisper, “I love you!” This is what my spirit heard this morning: “Set your face toward me to hear what My Spirit is saying to you. Behold, a clear path to my presence is open for those who stand in the gap, pray and seek my face. Today I call you by name.”
So what will your answer be? ‘Not today, can’t you see I’m busy? I have a job to do, find someone else!’ or will it be, ‘Speak to me Lord! You are the most important voice I will hear today. What can I do for you, Lord? That I may say what you would have me say and do what you would have me do, for in this, I will be truly satisfied & walk in Your peace.’
The choice is always ours to make. He will not force us or be an inconvenience to us. But remember this; What you make happen for the Lord, He will make happen for you.
