Holy Spirit Nudges
God’s plan for us is to go back to the basics and fall in love with him all over again. Commit yourself to draw near to Him. Separate yourself UNTO Him. Turn off the things pulling you down; walk away from what you know is not pleasing Him. Run to Him and get as close as you can. When the cares of this world seem to press in, Holy Spirit is faithful to send us little nudges to realign with Him.
“But the worries of life, the deceitful pleasures of wealth, and the desires for other things come in and choke the word so that it can’t produce a crop.” (Mark 4:19; ISV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
If we only knew how incredibly much God loves us, we would never want to sin ever again! Cry out to God for a new revelation of His deep love for you.
Put aside your selfishness and fear and ask the Lord what keeps you from a deeper walk with Him. Ask Him for a grace to fast it for a season, whether it is electronics, the tv, computer, volunteer work, etc.
Are there things in your life you are worrying about? Worrying won’t solve a thing. Draw near to God, tell Him all about it and let Him solve the problem for you.
Pray for others in the nation that may be struggling with the same concerns.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, I “know” how much You love me, but I want to really know it! I want holiness to come to my life out of a revelation of your love for me. Forgive me my self-centeredness and my fear. It keeps me from you, because I am afraid You won’t like it that I am struggling. But, YOU are the answer to the struggle, Lord! Take my worry and work things out for me. I want to see Your answers to the things that concern me. I am not alone. Many in this nation have the same fears. Show Yourself strong for us, Jesus! Amen.
Worrying about problems I am facing will not solve one. Only God has the exact right answers that I need, so I choose to bring these fears to Jesus today.
