Today’s Scripture: Then I saw and considered it; I looked and received instruction. Proverbs 24:32 ESV
Do we spend more time looking for instruction than preparing our spirits to receive it? Umm, how many time does the LORD speak to us yet we are too busy looking to receive?
A few years back I vividly recall crying out to God one morning while on my knees, with hands held high, as to my bewilderment that He remained silent in my life. I had been searching, I had been listening, or though I thought.
It is easy to get lost in our thoughts isn’t it? I have learned that if I turn to God’s Word after prayer that He is faithful to instruct. God does speak if we have prepared our hearts to receive.
God’s instruction is received when we have given up on our faculties. Our minds, our efforts can sound out instruction that our souls are designed to receive.
Are you prepared to receive instruction?
Today’s Prayer: Father God, prepare my heart for instruction. Open my spirit to the teaching of Your Holy Spirit. I seek You and Your truth LORD. Please remove the obstacles of my flesh and my understanding. I trust that I will receive the instruction You desire for me and I pray to do Your will. Help me to look with the Spirit within me. Amen
