Daily Delight

Monday, September 5, 2016

Lately, I’ve seen God do incredible things. I’ve seen Him pour out blessings for desires I’ve had for so long. I’ve seen Him lay out opportunities for my dreams and goals before me. He’s set the path clear for me, I’m filled to the very tip with His glory, my spiritual flame feels as if it could keep burning bright…then I come to a halt.
What happened?

I’ve been in a spiritual slump. I’ve lost the interest and energy that is sacred quality to a servant’s heart. I’m not feeling the so called “joy” I thought I’d be feeling when I pictured this moment – when God would give me these opportunities to be used by Him. I experienced my spiritual high only to see it sky-dive to the ground quicker then I imagined.

Darling, let me remind you what God has reminded me in the book of Haggai: The moment you were redeemed by Jesus’s precious blood was the moment you became a servant to bring Glory to God.
He sees the cases of this “spiritual slump” and calls us above it – a call for serious action. ’Be strong, all you people still left in the land. And now get to work, for I am with you,’ says the Lord of Heavens Armies, (Haggai 2:4). He holds a promise for us. A promise that the Lord of Heaven’s armies is by our side, His Spirit is among us, and He will not forsake us.

My spiritual slump? He has to discipline me out of it, but the wonderful part is he never lets me go when He does. He is doing the same for you. We can serve with expectation and delight because we know that He is our sustainer. He is instilling His blessing upon us to go about all that He has placed before us with the fiery passion of a servant’s heart. Rise up, take your bestowed sword because the King of Kings has a promise for you – the peace of His presence and the promise that He will place the encouragement you need at the very moment you need it. Rest in that and take delight in accomplishing the tasks He has placed before you.
