The Lord is my portion; I have promised to keep your words.
Each time we sit down with Jesus, He hands us a portion, a takeaway. He gives us what we need for that moment or that day or that situation or that season. We never walk away empty handed. If we do feel as though we’ve walked away without a portion, it is because of our own doing. Today let’s talk about how we can receive our portion every time.
Have open hands. If our hands are closed around what we think or what we want, we can’t receive what He has. We must release our grip and open our hands in worship. Then, He can fill them up.
Pray more than your requests. Sometimes we sit down with our Bible, we read a little, then we take our prayer requests to God. We forget that prayer is more than taking needs to God. Prayer is a conversation. Thank God, worship Him, tell Him how much you love Him, and listen quietly.
Repent so sin is not blocking us. Sin is like putting a black sheet in front of our face. We are blocked from seeing what is in front of us. Sin blocks us from God because He cannot be with sin. Repent of your sins so nothing is blocking you from God.
Rid your time of distractions. I’m not talking about our kids playing. Sometimes our quiet time just includes the beautiful noise of children. I’m talking about things like our phones. Those dings and pings are very distracting. Put your phone, tablet, and other devices away so your attention isn’t pulled to them.
Let’s be women who seek and receive our daily portion every time we sit down with our Father.
