PRAYER FOR SUCCESS Jan 31

prayer for success showers

Father, I am like a hamster on a treadmill going nowhere fast. I can continue to run around that imaginary treadmill and realize that each rung has been strategically placed to keep me from true success; or I can get off. My true success lies in knowing when to get off and just enjoy life. Stop the treadmill. I’m getting off. Wow! Life is relaxing. I’m being rejuvenated, revived and reinvigorated to continue my journey on a pathway to true success. Amen.

PRAYER FOR SUCCESS Jan 30

prayer for success showers

Father, It is more than just my imagination running away with me—it is my time, energy and effort as well. I’m feeling consumed and pressed on every side. Nothing is being accomplished. I’m experiencing burn out. Teach me how to get off this treadmill, to not be anxious, and to be still and rest in you as I enjoy the wonderful life You have created for me. Amen.

Gift Of His Presence: Showers’ Blessing Inspires

in-his-presenceHave you ever wondered if God meant for us to go through life like a hamster on a treadmill—running round and round going nowhere fast? Our souls have wearied from the repetitiveness of our lives, yet we can never find time to just stop and rest. Even on vacations we have not learned how to truly rest. We pack our days with activities and in some instances when we return from vacation; we are even more exhausted than when we left. We need a vacation from the vacation.

Almighty God, in His infinite wisdom, put into place a commandment for us to rest. He told us that the Sabbath was to be kept holy. I’ve come to realize that He is not a God of happenstance but purpose. In His divine creation of humankind He also knew that at some point we would need to stop and rest. It is in this rest that we are able to tap into the power of God. In our busy-ness of being busy, we often lose sight of what God’s purpose is for our lives.

One particular year, I stopped. I got off the repetitive treadmill of this world and experienced God in a way that is totally inexplicable. I shut myself away from the cares of this world and learned to worship God in the Sabbath Rest. The more I worshiped in the nothingness of the Sabbath, the more I entered into the presence of God’s rest.

You see, I brought all of my cares relating to this world and laid them at His feet. It was in this euphoric state of surrender, I was able to reconnect to Him and what He created me to be. It was a visitation in which my mind, body and soul was refreshed, renewed and revived and His voice became even more audible and our relationship was strengthened and solidified.

The Sabbath is a time of rest in order to become one with the things of God and to become one with Him. Jesus taught that man is not to worship the Sabbath, but to reverence it as a time to reconnect to the Holy things of God. It is a time to worship and praise God for being God—the Creator of humankind and all things.

The gift of the present is the best present because it ushers us into God’s presence. It is in the Sabbath presence that we find Him; but it is in His Sabbath presence that we find ourselves. It is in the Sabbath presence that we are able to tap into the power of who we have been created to be and able to walk in the realm of the impossibilities and overflow of God.

Embrace His presence! Be refreshed, revived and renewed! Join me for a complimentary coaching session @ The ME Place Mentor Empowerment Institute.

Scriptures

Come unto me me, all of ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Matt 11:28-29

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy Exo 20:8

Thus saith the LORD; Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem; Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do ye any work, but hallow ye the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers. Jer 17:21-22

If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Isa 58:13

And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Mar 2:27

Be still and know that I am God. Psa 46:10

Prayer

Father, Thank You for Your Sabbath presence. The gift of the present is the best present because it ushers me into Your presence. Bless me to make time just to be with You and to learn how to be still and embrace all the beauty You have created in this world. Bless me to be still so I can clearly hear your voice and your instruction. Bless me to just enjoy dwelling in Your presence so I can be refreshed, revived and renewed.  Amen.
