Episode 231

TODAY’S READING:

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.

Matthew 7:24

 

Yesterday I had a divine appointment. I was introduced to a stranger, and I quickly realized that this person could potentially change the trajectory of my business.

 

Now, the crazy part was that I was planning on leaving. But I was nudged to move my chair and to take a seat. I also always bring my phone with me, but I was nudged to leave it behind. Thankfully I did so because while I was meeting with this person, my phone was blowing up. Had I had it with me, it could have kept me distracted, and I may not have benefited from meeting this stranger. Or worse, it could have interrupted an important conversation.

 

It was a beautiful reminder that God prompts us to do different things. He may nudge us in a specific direction. We should really work on trusting the Holy Spirit when He speaks.

 

God is in control. He saw the end, and he saw the beginning, and he said, you were worth it. It’s hard for us to understand that because we see time in a linear progression, but God is outside of time. The best way I can explain it is that he is all-powerful, and even if we can’t understand his holiness and his majesty, we can understand that our faith is sufficient.

 

Give Him thanks at all times. Listen to when He speaks. Pray often. It will change your life. 

 

PRAYER

Father God, we are so thankful that you don’t live within the time constrictions we do. We are so grateful that you’ve seen it all and you still choose us. We pray today that we listen to when the Holy Spirit speaks. We will move as you direct us. We will go where we are lead. I thank you for this beautiful Monday. It is with everything in us that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
