No matter our personality, our upbringing or our recent history we can’t be taken hostage by the demands of this world or even its most desperate needs.
We must refuse the chains of guilt and do that which the Father directs.
We must learn to listen and learn to listen well.
It is the only way to navigate this world as his.
Self-navigation may bear some fruit for the Kingdom, but for the harvest to abound, we must know the Shepherd’s voice and follow his lead. We may feel a sense of disappointment, but it will release the feeling of failure from our lives.
In this and through this kind of attention to prayer, we are given a set of marching orders infused with a power and a peace not of this world.
In the name of love, let’s learn to listen.
To finish our New Year launch, starting next week we are going to revisit a series of five blog posts from May 2013 on the power of prayer.
