Are you approaching each day with the intent to sincerely listen to what God is trying to say to you? Or are you aimlessly hearing every trivial word & allowing them to sway you? If you’re only hearing, you’ll find yourself unable to distinguish between the wrong voices trying to influence you and the right One trying to help you.

Before the Lord ever even created us, He knew how often we would betray Him, reject Him, and ignore Him... But He formed us anyway. He chooses us anyway. He keeps His promises anyway. He blesses us anyway. He sent His Son anyway. His love is unwavering anyway.

This world will try to convince you that you don’t have to prepare yourself for God’s return, and that you can leave the church and live however you please - because you have time. But that’s a lie. You don't have time.

Are you pursuing things in your life because they are appealing to your flesh, or because the Lord has called you to them? And if God does wipe out what you’ve invested in, ask yourself: Was it ever really God-ordained in the first place, or just God-allowed?

We must enter our battlefield armed with the armor of God, our trust in Him, and confidence in the abilities God has gifted us. Never let the challenge of a battle or a beast make you forget that the One who overcame the grave and has a train that fills the entire temple is fighting with you. On your own, your giant will seem too big to take down. But with the Lord, it’s an easy target.

Just like shoes gather all the dust and muck from the places we walk on, so do our minds, hearts, and eyes inevitably pick up the unclean things we are exposed to day to day. But before you can truly enter into His holy atmosphere, He’s going to require clean hands and a pure heart.

The intention of Jesus was for us to imitate the prayer in our daily lives, not duplicate it. He was telling us to always enter into our time of prayer acknowledging and praising the Lord as our Heavenly Father who loves us, guides us, and corrects us when needed. And to pray for God to return to this world, destroy all evil, and establish His Kingdom on a new heaven and earth as He has promised us.

Have you ever felt like you are constantly at war within yourself? Like you desire to do what’s right and follow God’s Word, but there’s always this part of you that wants to go your own way? Don’t worry, we can ALL relate. Our human nature - our flesh - is drawn to sin. It urges us to ignore God’s voice and doesn’t particularly like to submit. So how do you battle this?

Don’t let sin warp the truth about God’s infinite love for you and keep you from running back into His arms. While He cannot let sin go untouched, His guidance does not end with reproach. You see, God has given us all the beautiful gift of grace. Even when we do fall into sin, He desires to give us another chance. And another. And another. So if you make a mistake, don’t run from Him. Run to Him.

With so many different things trying to crowd our lives, it can sometimes seem like it’s impossible to reach Jesus. Relationships, obligations, media, confrontation, temptations, pain, sickness - they all try to stand between us and the Lord. But it’s our job to push past them in order to seize God and all He has for us.
