11.23.20 – Daily Dose of Worship. A study on prayer. Part 9. Willing.

DEVOTION: I heard this quote today.

When we pray, it’s not so much what we say, it’s our willingness to meet with God.

How willing are you to meet with God? How often are you willing?

Compelling questions. Questions that need answers for each of us.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30

We complain about our stress, our anxiety. We complain and stress about fear, about worry. In the midst of those complaints, how often is God in the conversation?

Do we lean on our own power or are we seeking another power? Seeking Him in it all?

Are you willing today? Are you taking the time you need to to converse with God? To lean into Him?

If I’m honest….no.

Are you?

    Too often, we wait until we hit crisis mode to even seek God. So much time wasted on trying to figure it out, do it our own way!! How much simpler to go to Him first:
    less heartache, fewer people hurt, more peace, etc…

    Suzanne mentioned to me one night that when you have the busiest schedule and the hardest time getting to a bible study, prayer, etc… because of the world pulling at you… That’s when you have to try the hardest to get there. As that’s when you need it most. So right. Working on that. Grateful that is planted in me know to think of and work on too. Thank you my friend.
