There are days, thankfully only a few, that I cannot find within me the words needed to be written. I scroll through my mind looking for tidbits of information that God may have downloaded, the previous day, only to conclude that nothing is there. I will pick something out, start a story, but have trouble linking it to the scripture or text that I am studying. That’s when I realize that there is a presence blocking my ability to hear. Once I figure out what’s going on, I immediately go to the psalms, I will pick something randomly, or go to Psalms 91, and read it aloud. Doing this cleanses the air, and refreshes my mind, calms my anxiety, and floods my surroundings with the peace of Jesus. After doing this the words begin to flow.
When you get stuck, no matter what it is you are doing, stop and pray, pull out a psalm, read it aloud, or sing it. Did you know that the Lord inclines his ear to you, and hears your cries? We are so privileged to have God’s ear, and the knowledge that we are not praying to the air.
By the way, nothing is random if you have the Holy Spirit! I say randomly choose a scripture, but when I randomly chose a psalm, the very first scripture in that psalm, fit perfectly with the scripture in my line of study.
"To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry." Psa 40:1
"And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us." 1Jn 5:14
