What Elijah tells Ahaziah in yesterday’s QT is still ringing in my head today. “Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are sending men to consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron? Therefore you will not leave the bed you are lying on. You will certainly die!"
Because there wasn’t morning prayer last week, and again no morning prayer this week, I haven’t had dedicated time for prayer. There’s a lot going on in my life, and I’m doing all that I can, but I feel that I should be consulting God first. It feels like Elijah is asking me “Is it because there’s no God in your life that you are not consulting God?” And I think part of it is that I’m afraid he might say something I do not want to hear, or that maybe I’ll only hear what I want to hear, because I’ve been wrong before. I really don’t know for absolute certainty what he wants exactly, but I have a pretty good idea what I want, so most I can do is do what I can do and hope for the best, but just remember that even if I don’t get what I want, it’s for the best. Important thing right now is to consult Him.
Application: pray for 30 minutes before going to sleep
