He Hears Your Prayer and The Fire of God
At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart. Psalms 5:3 TPT
Is it just me, or do you find that at night when the day is done, and the lights are turned off and it’s quiet, that sometimes it is easier to sense His very present presence? Sometimes when I wake up in the morning, I long to realize what I sensed the night before. I feel like I am nothing without Him and can’t do anything without Him. He is the very essence of life. It is His love that gives me strength!
In the morning, our hearts long to seek His face! Nothing matters more. I am compelled to cry out to God. Lord give me the right heart and a right spirit that will sustain me! I lay all of the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for You. Let Your fire ignite in My heart. Let me be aware of Your presence. Let me abide with You! Make me a servant and to be more like You.
He Takes Up Your Prayer So That His Fire Burns in Your Heart
During a difficult time, I was walking from one place to another at work and noticed that He was walking right beside me. I definitely took a double take! I was amazed. He was looking at me with a huge smile on His face. His love and passion for me was like a fire. This gave me so much joy and strength. Look closely and you will see Him walking right beside you.
Remember What He Did Before Because He Will Do It Again
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. He loving devotion endures forever. Psalm 118:1 BSB
Today, as you press in to setting your focus on Him, I want to encourage you to remember how He has walked with you and talked with you. I want to say to you “don’t give up!” I ask you to remember what He has done for you before in your life and how He has always been faithful. He is still devoted to you! I pray and ask that you sense His manifest presence as you read this. I pray He floods you with His love right now.
He Will Bring You Refreshing Right Here and Right Now
This passage says that He “takes up” your prayers because He cares for you:
Those who look to Him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
and saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear Him, and delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Psalm 34:5-10 ESV
May I be so bold to ask you to read this previous passage out loud? May I suggest putting your name in the verses while you read it again? Declare His promises to you today. Lay the pieces of your life on the altar and His fire will burn in your heart.
