Our fascination with Christ’s heart can increase daily. As we ponder His sacrifice of love, we will grow in love for Him. As we reflect on the beauty of His character, worldly cravings will fade. Seek Him consistently and you will find yourself longing to be with Him more and more.
This is surely easier said than done of course. There are battles to face as we spend time with God, namely, distractions!
Distractions are a part of daily life. Quiet times of five and even 30 minutes are challenging when distractions fill our minds.
Often more time is needed to experience a deeper connection with God. I aim for least an hour, two if possible. But how do we fight those distractions?
The above image details a strategy for dealing with “to do” distractions and more. Get your strategy ready and let’s win against those distractions! Let’s keep plowing, setting our hearts to leave our devotional time knowing we’ve met with God.
Set that appointment with God and keep it.
Those around the throne are drawn deeper into worship as they look upon God. Our love for Him also increases as we consistently spend time in His presence.
Lord, we repent for not keeping our “meetings” with You. Forgive us for lacking self-control with distractions that we can avoid. Help us say “no” to frustration concerning those we cannot.
Stir our hearts to be with You. Fascinate us anew with the intimate knowledge of You. Captivate our hearts like we have captivated Yours (Song of Songs 4:9).
Set aside a moment with the Lord right now. Talk with Him. Let Him speak to your heart, answering this prayer not at a future time, but right now.
Write anything He impresses upon your heart or any picture you see. Look up Scriptures that come. Share some if you’d like.
“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
Jeremiah 33:3 (NKJV)
