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.

The Lord is increasing you more and more and making you rich in experiences, my sister. He is showing you the secret of having an abundant life. In the world today, people are in a hurry. They are busy, constantly pursuing, attaining, and launching. They accomplish one feat and move on to the next one with no time set apart to process what God just did. No time to receive clear instructions from Him. They 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 our 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 continue to 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 your 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. 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 busyness. I want victory and for you to be glorified. Help me to seek you consistently and not lean on my own understanding. Thank you for this precious blessing. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Joshua chapters 7-8)
