Lean your Ladder on the Lord
How do we remain strong in a busy life with much to do?
Over and over in the New Testament gospels you hear about Jesus getting alone to pray.
Although He is God, which would seem like you wouldn’t “need” to pray, He was also man and showed us what is vital in life.
He was singular in Him focus on the plan in front of Him. But, He always stepped away from the crowds to pray. He then went back to His work.
In our world of fast-paced agendas, to-do lists and endless goals, we cannot live without this “step away” time.
As I have made that a top priority in my life, clarity has come.
We could have our ladder on the wrong building and be climbing up only to reach the top and realize it wasn’t where we wanted to be!
The time set apart allows for the Spirit to lead, guide, restore and renew.
My prayer every day has become “please use me and help me to hear Your voice better.” I don’t have a desire for a bunch of stuff and it’s remarkable how His desires truly do become the desires of your own heart.
“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.”
Psalms 37:4 NLT
