Morning Coffee with Jesus - February 9, 2010

 Greetings loved ones.

Today's "Morning Coffee with Jesus" comes from Isaiah 25:9 "In that day they will say 'Surely this is our God; we trusted in him and he saved us.  This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.' "

Have you ever noticed that we are harder on ourselves when we commit errors than we would be on neighbors or friends who commit those same errors??  I definitely know this to be true.  And yet, I know that when I have been in a constant state of prayer, my spirit is quieter, my heart less restless, my mind more focused.  Unfortunately, thought, we as humans have a tendency to let the things of the world and the happenings at the moment pull us out of that desirous state and drag us into the ways of the world.

Here the author reminds us that we should accustom ourselves to getting back to that constant state of prayer and when we find ourselves slipping out of it, retreat and get back to that place where the Holy Spirit can rule.  It is in this place of prayer where we lay at the feet of God the cares of the world and we develop, one prayer at a time, a deep-seated trust in our loving Lord.

Easy??  Not at all.  However, when we are at that place of prayer the inner peace is like an oasis.  It causes us to rejoice and be glad in God’s salvation. 

Today, try to be in that place of prayer for 10 minutes continually.  And tomorrow make it 15 and gradually your entire day will be guided by prayer.  Then, the peace within will be displayed in all you are, all you say, and all you do and that is the greatest witness we can make for the Lord.

Have an awesome day in Jesus! Go MAD (make a difference) in someone’s life today!

Stay sweet,
stay broken,
stay His!

Hey, Elisa! It's so hard for me to stay focused on prayer sometimes...As soon as I start a million things pop in my mind! Beautiful verse and many important reminders in this hub!

Don't I know that it is hard to keep your mind wandering but that's why I pray early in the morning before the "information highway" is too jammed with traffic! You might just want to meditate on scripture for a while and let the Holy Spirit bring to mind those things which need prayer. Give it to God and He'll work out the details!

Thanks for sharing!
