Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season....2nd Timothy 4v.2
We like "instant" when we are in a hurry. Open the packet, add water and "boom" there it is. Grab it and go! But are we instant? How long does it take me to process and obey ( finally) when I hear the Lord prompting me to give, witness or say something by the Spirit? I think of how Esther and the other women were prepared for ruling with the King by soaking in spices daily for months a time. After their training was completed, you could squeeze them and instantly smell the most beautiful fragrance. Our instant response depends on how much time we spend in the Lord's presence. Isaiah instantly cried from his heart, "Send me" when the Lord asked who would go for Him? Like eager school kids raising their hands to be called on, our response to the Spirit's desire to move on the world around us, should be INSTANT.
FATHER: Here I am, Send me! Quicken me to instantly obey!
Blessings on your week of being instantly available to Jesus!
Love you guys,
