MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️: A scripture ran through my mind all night. It may be just for me...but I’ll share it with you.
Habakkuk 2:1: “I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and WATCH (to see) what he will say (to hear) to me.”
This scripture holds keys for how to hear from the Lord. First..he DECLARED that he will stand and watch UNTIL he hears. This is our posture. This is where staying covered comes into play. I don’t dare make a move or add anything to my plate without complete clarity + confirmation. That doesn’t make me a robot...that makes me wise. I did a lot of going my OWN way and then asking the Lord to bless it. That’s not the correct order.
Isn’t it interesting that Habakkuk says he will watch to SEE what will be said. He didn’t say I’m going to listen. He’s WATCHING. This is a key way the Lord speaks to us. So...watch. Are you seeing a word over and over? Something you see in nature? A billboard. A license plate. A passage in a book. A scripture you read that jumps out as an answer. God is NOT formulaic, so I can’t give you all the ways...but simply know that HE wants to speak to you and will speak to you. But first, we must CHOSE TO STAND. To set ourselves apart and on the rampart (a broad elevation of earth).
Today, I will watch and wait to SEE what He wants to say to me.
