Day 322: Soak (November 18)

This morning, I encourage you to spend time soaking in God’s Presence.  Have you ever soaked in Him before?  Do you know what that means?

Well, it is as simple as sitting in silence and just being still before the Lord, or playing light worship music and sitting and focusing your heart and mind on Him.

The Bible instructs us to meditate…which isn’t the scary new age thing that the world has perverted it into.  As with most things the enemy does, he took something sacred and slanted it toward the wrong focus.

This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t learn how to spend time quietly focused on Him.

But whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on His law, day and night.  Psalm 1:2

Tremble and do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.  Psalm 4:4

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to Your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.  Psalm 19:14

I believe one reason the enemy wanted to steal the idea of meditation is because he doesn’t desire us to be still because then we just might hear God speak to us.  When he realized he couldn’t fully steal it, then he perverted it into a time when a person thinks only of themselves, not God.

But we can take back this sacred time.  Bringing our hearts and minds into a firm focus on God Almighty.

Won’t you give Him this time today?

Find a quiet place and focus all your mind and heart on our Holy Creator.  He loves you so.

I would love to hear from you if He speaks to you during this quiet soaking time

On my bed I remember You; I think of You through the watches of the night.  Psalm 63:6

I meditate on Your precepts and consider Your ways.  Psalm 119:15

My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on Your promises.              Psalm 119:148
