I know that I’m a little late with my post this morning, but with good reason. God has drawn me out into the woods for some quiet time so I can hear His voice more clearly. I took a trail that I had never been on and He brought me to a spot beside a lake. The place I sat was right at the edge and there was a tree bent over touching the water. This is what God said to me: This is my picture of you. You are well anchored along the bank, but you have grown and are now dipping into my living water. At some point, the day of my choosing, your anchor will be released and you will be totally immersed in my presence. Do not dwell on that day, but soak up as much of Me as you can while I take you down this path.
There was this branch that was broken off and completely rotten, but it was still hanging on. That was a picture of something that is dead in me, but I keep looking at it. He told me I need to push that branch down and never look at it again. So I physically tried to push that branch down, but it still hung on. I felt like He wanted me to document it so I took a picture. Then I said to Him, “if you want me to break this branch off, I will need your help.” Well guess what happened, it came right down! I don’t know what it is that He wants me to let go of yet, but I will now focus on doing what He has told me to do.
What is dead inside of you that you need to break off, never to look at again? Ask God what that is. Then ask Him to help you rid yourself of it!
Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Psalms 51:9-11
