If it is all closing in. If you cannot catch your breath. Take a break.
Change the scenery, change your routine, change your perspective.
I often go for a walk, take a vacation, a drive, or visit a new place where I hear from God and see something new.
What do you learn in these moments? That the battle belongs to the Lord. Batterson is famous for saying, "I work like everything depends on me, but I pray like everything depends on God."
Whatever you are facing, let God be in the midst of it. Don't allow your cynicism or logic to control your faith. What is God saying right now? Don't know? Go for a walk.
What to pray for today.
Pray that we will grow and abound in love, make wise choices, and discern what is best. Pray that we will do the right thing - be pure and blameless and live for God's glory - Be filled with the fruit of righteousness.
