Direct Your Thoughts To Me More And More

DIRECT YOUR THOUGHTS TO ME MORE AND more. When you are working on a challenging project, you tend to seek My Face and My help frequently. This pleases Me—and it enhances the work you are doing. There is a delightful rhythm about this: You look to Me in a listening mode; then you act with the help of My Spirit. This is repeated over and over as you and I collaborate on the project. Being attentive to Me takes sustained effort, but this collaborative way of doing things does not drain you.

I encourage you to live more and more of your life in this way. When the task before you is less challenging, you tend to be less attentive to Me. You may even forget about Me for a while as your mind slips toward neutral. You forget that you live in a world at war—with an enemy that never rests. This is why the apostle Paul admonishes Christians to be alert and always keep on praying.

The more you direct your thoughts to Me, the more alive you will feel. This prayer-privilege is not a chore. It's a joyous lifeline!

Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!

[Psalm 105:3]

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.”

[John 10:27–28]

A cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only.

[Mark 9:7–8]

Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

[Ephesians 6:18]
