"Turn to My reproof. Behold, I will pour out My spirit on you; I will make My words known to you."
I find the most effective way to pray is praying God’s Word back to Him. It assures me I am praying His will for me.
Coming into His Presence and humbly declaring to Him, "I kneel before you for correction and instruction," is a great way to start our prayer. His ways are always higher than ours. (Isaiah 55:9) Then asking to be filled with the Holy Spirit to make the truth of His Word known to us, for guidance, and to enable our obedience to Him.
"Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts."
Let us heed the wisdom of this one simple verse in the book of Proverbs. We begin by turning to His reproves, so that we might receive the promise of being filled with His Spirit and receive revelation of His Words. This is an offer we cannot refuse in order to find peace in a very turbulent world.
In His love.
This is the Master’s work! May we have eyes to see!
