Rise up! and spend time in God's Presence and do it constantly.
I Know that I sometimes struggle with this, I go to bed WAY too late, and then I get up later and miss my time with HIM, but I try to get it later on in the day. But there is nothing better than getting in HIS presence early, I learn by trial and error that waking up early would be better for me because I get sooo busy during the day that if I do get my time to God it would be rushed. Getting it early for me helps me with my attitude, I get instructions, directions, because I never know what will happen in the day but God knows and he gives me the strength to take on the day.
If you rise early to pray you can stop demonic influences from taking your day in a different direction (Exodus 14:24). You can literally re-route demons. Taking this time will transform your life. You can stop the enemy from attacking your children, touching your finances, Your marriage and break off generational curses. Spending time with The Lord does all of that and then some, we serve an awesome God!
Exodus 14:22-25: (The Message)
"The Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground with the waters a wall to the right and to the left. The Egyptians came after them in full pursuit, every horse and chariot and driver of Pharaoh racing into the middle of the sea. It was now the morning watch. God looked down from the Pillar of Fire and Cloud on the Egyptian army and threw them into a panic. He clogged the wheels of their chariots; they were stuck in the mud.
The Egyptians said, "Run from Israel! God is fighting on their side and against Egypt!"
The devil will do everything he can to keep you from spending time with God and discovering His sufficiency. He will put people in your way and keep you so busy and tired, that instead of things getting better, they get worse. I want to challenge you. Set aside some time in the morning, evening, (or if things are so hectic) on your lunch break or when you are lying in bed and get into God's presence undistracted. Take a deep breadth and focus on God's promises.
Here is one way you can focus on God, I LOVE this song by Brian Courtney Wilson, "All I need" Just listening to the lyrics brings me RIGHT in God's presence. I LOVE this song and thought you guys would love it to. When you get your mind prepared to be in God's presence and spend time with HIM, listen to this song, I know that my mind starts to go down a list of this I need to do for the day, but spending time with God is more important and can distract me, but once I listen to this song, I begin to think of how good God has been and is to me! ENJOY!
Here is a song and lyrics by: BRIAN COURTNEY WILSON - ALL I NEED
Hmm.. hmm.. hmm...
Real simple prayer
All I need is a touch from you
No one else can do the things you do
Take the wrong in my life and make it right
even me All I need lord Jesus
is a touch from you from my master and king
all I need is a touch from you
Oh God Ho... God
Lord I'm standing in the need of prayer
When I call Lord I know your there
Reach your hand down from heaven And pull me through
All I need is a single touch
a touch from the master oh god
All all I ever need is a touch from you
If you touch me
hey... I'll change my lose to win
I will not loose I'll win, I win
And live again New life I win
You'll Take the wrong and make it right
you'll make it alright (All i need is a touch from you)
you wont forsake me (All i need is a touch from you
you'll touch me Jesus and hold on
That's why I need (All i need is a touch)
That's why I need (All i need is a touch)
that's I need your touch tonight (touch me)
you unchanging hand (touch me)
that will not waver (touch me)
even when I'm worked (All i need is a touch
weak and worn out
and fill with doubts about tomorrow
cause I felt this pain yesterday
cause I made so many mistakes I mean I stumbled and fell
and I did not think
I could ever be made over
But somehow I believe tonight
That if you put your healing hands on me
Everyone of my sins Everyone of my sins
Will be washed away I wanna be made over
I wanna be made over Everything I've ever needed
Healing, peace, joy unspeakable joy
Till you touch me lord Jesus
Till you heal me lord Jesus
Till I shine in the light of your glory
One more time, I will, I will, I will
All I've ever need is a touch from you
Even me a r like me
All I need, all I need, all I need
Don't be afraid join me at the alter
God is here love is here
