Daily communication with God is the key to your success as a Christian, as a wife, mother, employee, friend, and as a representative of the gospel to the world.
Jesus said, “Apart from Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). Do you believe you can do nothing of eternal worth apart for Him?
I love this quote from Wendy Speake: (@wendy_speake)
“Hurried, harried, and horrible: they go together. But hurried and holy rarely coexist. Holy and hallowed and hushed, now those are true companions. They meet together in the morning hours before the sun steals past the beauty of dawn. We need to join them there. We need to fellowship with the Holy One—slowing down, sitting down and coming down off our cram-packed agendas to seek Him on the floor.
On the floor.
Because that’s where every person is going to end up, eventually. Either on purpose, prostrating oneself in worship, intentionally in the morning hours; or at night in a tearful puddle; or, and this is a frightening thought, they’re going to find themselves on the ground like the discarded branch that’s not bearing fruit—cut off and cast down”
Friends, we are going to end up on our faces one way or another, aren’t we? We can either intentionally spend time at the feet of Jesus, or our out-of-control lives will shove us there after we are spent and sin-sick.
We get to choose which way we will arrive at His feet. Let’s choose the better part!
