“I AM YOUR FATHER-GOD. Listen to Me! Learn what it means to be a child of the everlasting King. Your richest duty is devotion to Me. This duty is such a joyous privilege that it feels like a luxury. You tend to feel guilty about pushing back the boundaries of your life to make space for time alone with Me. The world is waiting to squeeze you into its mold and to crowd out time devoted to Me. The ways of the world have also warped your conscience, which punishes for doing the very thing that pleases Me most: seeking My Face. Listen to Me above the clamor of voices trying to distract you. Ask My Spirit to control your mind, for He and I work in perfect harmony. Be still and attentive in My Presence. You are on holy ground.”
Isaiah 9:6 – For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Zechariah 9:9 (NKJV) – “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.
Romans 8:15-16 – For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
Exodus 3:5 – Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.”
Jesus Calling For Kids ~ July 6th
“At the burning bush, Moses stood on holy ground and heard the very voice of God. And now I am asking you to step onto holy ground and listen to Me!
You don’t need a miraculous bush. Just leave behind the cares of this world. For a little while, forget that list of things you’re supposed to get done, and just be with Me.
Don’t let the world make you feel guilty for our time together. Don’t listen to the lie that says you should be busy doing something more productive, something that matters. There is nothing that matters more than spending time with Me – Your Lord and Savior. Block out all the noise of the world and be still in My Presence. When you do, you are standing on holy ground.”
I am supposed to be an example, to those who come behind me, of the right way to walk with the Lord. A quiet time with God was not something that I grew up with, I only began dedicating time to Him for the last four years. Now that I know the importance of spending time alone with God in Praise, Prayer and Peace every day, I want this for my children and my grandchildren too.
This world is notorious for offering up distractions to take our eyes off of where we truly find our peace. I know who I need to focus on and I know how it feels to walk on holy ground. I love my children and my grandchildren so much and I want them to know what I have learned. I want them to experience the freedom that can only come from walking on God’s holy ground.
I am going to be correcting a huge oversight on my part from yesterday. I will spend time with my grandchildren today and at the beginning of our time together is going to be focused on this devotion in Jesus Calling and a discussion of the benefits of walking on God’s holy ground. The great thing about passing on godly wisdom and knowledge to my grandchildren…they share what we talk about with their parents. Sometimes transformation happens in parents because of their great love for their children. I know this because it happened to me!!
