Happy Saturday friends! Have ya missed me? I just wanted to drop by to share a little bit of what's been on my heart. Lately as I've been learning and growing more in Christ in a particular area of my life I'm noticing that every moment with Christ really matters. It has always mattered but to me it seems as if now it matters more than it ever has before. Being obedient and a willing vessel to God comes with so much territory that can be quite uncomfortable. I'm currently learning how to cultivate and mature a gift that I've always had but understanding the importance of what this gift entails has been quite the journey so far.
Who said being obedient to God was easy and comfortable? Ha, no one ever, but when it comes to being obedient to Christ that's not quite my issue. It's the uncomfortable feeling that comes with it sometimes which can open the door for self doubt, confusion, and double mindedness. Knowing and being familiar with the voice of God and just who God is in general is important. Learning how to resist the enemy, the attacks and shutting down the other voice is what takes practice and diligence. It's like the scenario of having an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other and they're both shouting things. Learning to ignore and not give energy to the little devil is an everyday practice that as a believer in this pivotal time is crucial.
For me I've been doing things a little differently lately and when I say different I mean I'm requiring more accountability and opening my mouth to ask for help being authentic in the moments where I truly just don't have it and need a pick me up or a covering prayer to get me through. Tonight I want to challenge you to get out of your head and silence the voice of lies, doubt, worry, and confusion. Hold on the the peace of God that surpasses all understanding and cling closer to God.
My prayer today is that we will be able to identify at all times the spirit and voice of God. I pray that we hold on to God's hand and never let go. I pray that we give all of our battles to God and TRUST Him to be and do all that He said He will be and do.
-Yours Truly, Eb
