Word of the Day... April 28, 2013



“FOR THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE TOWARD THE RIGHTEOUS,
AND HIS EARS ATTEND TO THEIR PRAYER,
BUT THE FACE OF THE LORD IS AGAINST THOSE WHO DO EVIL.” 1 Peter 3:12

Many people want to work for the Lord, but sometimes they have a hard time to just spending time with Him.  It is easier to be content in busyness then to walk quietly in the Presence of the Lord. 

God calls us to work for Him and there is enough work for every Christian.  But God also calls us to Himself.  He calls us to “Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place.”(Mark 6:31).

Many times we read in the Bible about Jesus rising early before daylight to go and find a place to pray. If the Son of God needed time alone with the Father, then how much more do we need?

It isn’t always easy to set aside time every day, shut out the world and spend time with the Lord in His Word and in prayer. But it is essential if we are to grow in our relationship with God and to get the strength that we need to face the battles that lie ahead of us.

The very best part of spending time alone with Jesus is how we are blessed by the Holy Spirit.  It is such a precious time and my day does not seem complete or in balance without it. I find that I treasure it and I look forward to what He has in store for me daily.  I hope that each one of you take the time today to open the Bible and spend a few minutes with Jesus.  I can promise you that He can change your life if you allow Him to.  Have a Simply Heavenly Sunday!!!
