Listen for the direction of the Holy Ghost.

“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.” Proverbs 8:17

One of the enemy’s primary goals is to distract believers. If he can distract us, he can increase the chances of us making mistakes that are life threatening. Remember, he is out to steal, kill and destroy. However, Jesus came so that we might have life and have life more abundantly (see John 10:10).

The Bible says, “They that seek Me early shall find me”. The word “early” here means to dawn. It also means to be up early at any task (with the implication of earnestness). Not only are we encouraged to pray early in the morning, but I believe the Lord is also encouraging us to seek Him before making decisions, and as we go about our daily activities. I call it simply “checking in.” Sometimes before my husband comes home, he’ll call me just to check in and see if I need anything. I can’t tell you the number of times God was able to protect me and my family simply because we know the importance of checking in. We’ve learned how to quiet ourselves and slow down long enough to follow God’s leading. Sometimes I don’t hear an audible voice saying do this or that, just a gentle nudge. That nudge has saved my life and the lives of my children on several occasions.

Don’t let the enemy distract you with all of the cares of life. Stay sober and vigilant. Listen for the direction of the Holy Ghost. When you do this, you will find wisdom, life and the favor of the Lord.

Prayer: Father God, I thank you for caring so much for me and those I love. I pray that you guide me Lord. Don’t let me become so distracted that I miss it. Help me learn how to seek you early before I enter into situations that could have been avoided. Lord, help me to be extra sensitive to the leading of your Holy Spirit. My life and the lives of those around me depends on it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
