Christian Living Prayer

Where is all the chaos coming from?

 

Do you ever feel frenzied? Or spiritually drained, as some say?

I know I have felt that way at times.

But, why? God is not the author of confusion (1 Cor 14:33). All things from our heavenly Father are good, including our relationship with His son, Jesus.

Do we create frenzy by pushing Jesus aside? How about when we hurry and stress about the day, not pausing to pray or read God’s word? Or when we skip our worship time? Our focus is diverted, conveying we don’t have time for God.

He is still there, waiting for us.

Maybe we are praying and studying the Bible, but God seems quiet. Satan is whispering, “God has abandoned you”. Wrong! God’s silence is about our patience toward His perfect timing!

He is still there, waiting for us.

God’s good work in us began when we accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice when he died on the cross for our sins. All he wants in return is our love and obedience. But, where do we begin? We are imperfect women serving a perfect God!

First, we must ask Jesus to save us. Then, nurture the relationship:

  1. Daily time with Jesus

A relationship with Jesus is most important in our life. He should be first in everything, including our time! When planning our days, we need to schedule time with Jesus. And, keep that appointment!

  1. Pray without ceasing.

Prayer time is not over when our appointment is over. We should pray throughout our day; making prayer a constant in our daily life. Jesus wants to hear it all, from big crises to daily trifles. Try it!  You will love your days more and your renewed perspective.

  1. Read the Bible

We should be head first in our bibles every day. If not, we might be missing sweet encouragements or answers to prayers from God! The Holy Bible is truth breathed by our heavenly father – His love story for us in His own words. How can we not read it?

  1. Daily praise and worship.

God wants us to assemble and worship together, but He also wants our individual worship. And guess what? He is already there, waiting for us! Praise him for your blessings, even the small stuff. Worship Him in song and scripture throughout your day while driving, working, exercising, shopping; out loud, or to yourself.  He hears it all!

  1. Share the love of Jesus

Jesus said the world would know his followers by our works and actions, and He commands us to love our neighbors. Don’t let him down! Be kind to others; tell them what Jesus has done for you. Bless with your blessings!

Pursuing Jesus may see overwhelming, but the reward is immeasurable. Jesus never leaves us, even when we fail or spiral out in a frenzy. He is already waiting for us: to love us, renew our spirit, and meet our needs. Take his hand and walk with Him. He will do the rest until the day you see Him face to face!

“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”  – Philippians 1:6 (ESV)
