This bush seems a complete mess, branches sprouting off in every direction.
Can our lives feel like a tangled mess, not through a lack of sleep, or a lack of sustenance, or food, or warmth, or stimulation for the brain, or many other things.
I think sometime my life, and especially today has felt like a tangled mess because of a number of factors.
God in Genesis chapter 1 sets a routine for us to stick to, he shows us through his actions that working 6 days and having a day off is a good routine to stick to. The Holidays have just finished and so I am trying to get into this routine again. It seems hard, it seems tiring even though I have been working over the summer on various projects, keeping active. Starting back the first week of school is demanding in that there are many things to remember and psychologically you feel drained because you are trying to remember names again and set the children’s routines in order as well.
Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
This week my prayer routine has been all over the place. This is especially important because this is what I feel really does set us up for the day in the power of the Spirit and with courage to defend attacks from the enemy.
Praying in the car, or on the way to somewhere does not do it for me. I need to pray on my own in the morning and set all my concerns on his shoulders and in return agree to take forward God’s plan.
We need the serene water, the Holy Spirit, the living waters.
Dear Lord, let us set our day in order before you and ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit so that we may do your will to your glory. Let us not rush your precious time but dwell in your love. Let us see your glory alive here on earth through the Spirit working through us to do your will.
