Slow down, my sister!

“But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him” Hebrews 11:6, Amplified.

I know you’re excited to fulfill your purpose, but God didn’t call you to try to accomplish everything in a year. God wants to make you rich in experiences. He is showing you how to have a life that is abundant. In the world today, we are mostly in a hurry. We are busy people, constantly pursuing, attaining, and launching. We accomplish one feat and then we are on to the next one with no time set apart to process what God just did or to receive clear instructions from Him. We become like Joshua at the Battle of Ai. After God delivered the city of Jericho into his hands in grand style, he assumed the city of Ai would be no different. He didn’t seek God for His plan or His instructions and was chased down the mountain by the men he and his army went in to defeat—their hearts melting like water. After the public humiliation, he cried out to God and He gave Him instructions and the victory.

The secret to success in God is in our constantly seeking Him. He tells us that when we diligently seek Him, we shall be rewarded. Our reward is victory. Our reward is Him being glorified in our lives. So let’s slow down my sister. Do we want busy or do we want effective? Do we want to constantly try our own methods, or do we want a sweatless anointing that glorifies God? I believe, if you’re like me, you want effectiveness. You want God to be glorified in everything you set out to do by His grace. You want total victory. You want to please Him and the only thing that pleases Him is our faith, which comes by hearing what He wants you to do and doing it—nothing more, nothing less.

Prayer: Yes, Father, I hear you loud and clear. I love doing what you’ve called me to do, but help me to slow down and receive instructions from you. Help me to do nothing in my own ability. I am desperately and hopelessly dependent upon you. I want effectiveness, not busy. I want victory and for you to be glorified. Help me to consistently seek you and not lean to my own understanding. Thank you for this precious blessing. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Joshua chapters 7-8)

  1. Slow down is exactly what God spoke to me in prayer
    He said Be Still
    I was so anxious of the fast for the day my mind was going 50 and thoughts kept flooding my prayers out
    When Father said slow down Be still
    Take my hand and sit with me
    Lay your head in my lap and rest
    Let me do it let me show you the plans I have for this day I created for you
    I created for you
    Yes I am so quick to get up and run to see what’s next instead of focusing like you said yesterday as well
    I need to focus on the areas Father wants to set me free from
    If I am so quick to move forward I will miss the up rooting process and the weeds will grow back
    It’s a process that Gods timing is perfect
    Thank you for being faithful to The true living God and His word and the souls He has placed before you
    Fasting this day is what He has for me to fast not my agenda
    And it’s slow down
    Thank you
    Have a blessed day
