Stepping Stones: Joyous Duty

Stepping Stones: Joyous Duty
July 11, 2009 Lighthouse Network

Transformational Tip
Your greatest calling and duty is devotion to God. This duty is such a luxury that it should feel like a “Joyous Duty.” The world is working hard to squeeze you into it’s mold and to crowd out any time devoted to God. The merry-go-round of life just goes faster and faster…rarely slowing down… never stopping. This world wants you to feel guilty about spending time with God. Do not let that happen! God wants to spend time with you, and wants you to spend time with Him. When we spend time with Him, it excites Him and also does wonders for our state of mind, well-being, and understanding of life. It’s good for us, and He knows that, that’s one of the reasons why He commands us to worship Him only. When you pick other distractions to spend your time and mental currency on, God might have to do something to those distractions to refocus your eyes and devotion on Him. Don’t wait for God to take action to redirect you, take action now.
Today, push back the boundaries of your life to make time alone with your Lord and focus on what it means to be the child of the everlasting King. Rejoice, the King always has a special invitation to spend time, one on one, just with you.

Prayer
Dear Father God,
I confess that the ways of the world have warped my conscience…this world tries to punish me for doing the very things that please You the most. Let me hear Your voice Lord…let me hear Your voice above the clamor of voices trying to distract me. I know that You work in perfect Harmony with Your Holy Spirit; I pray that Your Holy Spirit helps calm my mind. Help me be still and attentive in Your presence, for I know I am on holy ground.

The Truth
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
Romans 8:15-16

“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”
Exodus 3:5
