Let God Speak

Tip For Today

Make your communication with God today aimless. Let God take the lead and take you in the direction He wants.  Save your “asks” of God for another day. You just might be surprised with what God has to offer to you.

Reflection for Today

At work, I often ask people who propose a new project or idea, “Why are we doing this? What are we trying to achieve?” Sometimes similar questions are also worthwhile to ask about our praying.  What’s on my mind?  What am I praying about?  Sometimes, yes, but not always!  There is another part to praying.  Coming to God with a “blank slate” and letting God write on it.  Being patient, non-directive and waiting on God can be really frustrating and challenging because God speaks in his timeframe and his way.   A little daydreaming is a totally acceptable way of praying and waiting on God.  It’s less of a distraction than an opening for God to talk to us in ways that we may not have been expecting.  Our bosses and colleagues at work can sometimes get a little bothered by our daydreaming.  But God kind of likes it – it gives him space to get a word or two in.
