Mark 7:6 ‘This people honours me only with lip-service, while their hearts are far from me.’
To do lists, action items, catching up on digital news feeds, social media. Speed, efficiency and getting it done. We are reminded that our LORD does not work in the realm of haste. Committing to putting all of these aside and getting closer to God, opens the true door to a path of greater effectiveness in your life. Speed prayers with knowing the words without your heart being slowed and stilled before God becomes like reciting a ritual. Being still before the LORD, cast the anxiety of unfulfilled worries aside. Rushing into requests without asking God what he wants brings self to the centre of the relationship as opposed to our LORD Jesus. Psalm 37:7 ‘Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him.’ Bless you.
Prayer. Precious Father, you are our God and King, thank you LORD.
