Feeling the PressureTuesday, February 23, 2016
Deuteronomy 31: 8
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged
These past few weeks the pressure has been great! It feels as though I have been attacked on all fronts.
Have you ever rushed into a good thing because, well, it's a good thing? Recently, I've rushed into several things without seeking the Lord. Seemingly good things kept coming up and I kept saying yes. I would thank the Lord for the opportunities, not realizing they probably weren't from the Lord.
I started off simply going to school and being satisfied by His word. It was an amazing couple of weeks! I heard more from the Lord in the first few weeks of my move to SC than I ever have. He was speaking to me.
Well, the thing is, He's always speaking to me. I just finally had time to listen.
Now, months into my move, I've realized I haven't been hearing from the Lord as clearly as I did before.
I kept saying "Yes!" to seemingly good things, and now I have almost no time to spare.
I look back and I wish I would have waited, waited for Him to give me the go instead of me just jumping in.
It is so beautiful to hear the Lord's voice, and in the midst of all the madness that has been going on around me, I know that if I just sit down long enough to listen I can still hear Him.
I can tell you one thing He's been saying to me and that's to trust Him. Maybe trusting Him for you looks different than it does for me, but either way, I think that is a word for us both!
It can be so easy to get caught up in life.
If you just took some time and rested, if you took time and listened to His still small voice, what would He be saying to you?
Lesson of the day: Leave time for the Lord (And don't say yes to everyone)
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me
