Stirring Up


What Is God Stirring Up?

   In a devotional I was reading recently, the question was asked, “What is God stirring up in you?” The days since have been a worthwhile exercise in pondering possible answers to that question as well as listening to God for what He might say. The following are a few things He is stirring up in me:

   1) To host His Presence well. Throughout the day, my goal is to always be mindful of Him and listen for what He might say to me and/or what He would have me do.

   2) A more effective prayer life. To linger in His Presence until I hear what He has to say, particularly a specific Scripture, so that I am praying His heart.

   3) Sharing the message of salvation on a regular basis – wherever I am.

   4) A life that is marked by gratitude and hunger so that fruitfulness is the outcome.

   5) A life that displays the love of the Father, the victory of the Son and the power of the Holy Spirit.

   In and of myself, it is a daunting list; totally impossible. However, with God, all things are possible, and Holy Spirit knows how to accomplish what He puts on the heart. So, I will do my best to keep my eyes on Him.
