You are Invited

Eli answered, ‘Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of Him.’  1 Samuel, 1:17

Today you are invited to consider the cry of your heart.  What do you so long for that it is an ache inside you?   Spend time today with God.  Go into a quiet space, tell Him what you long for and why in as much detail as you can.  Then sit in His presence and listen for as long as possible.  What is He saying to you?   How do you feel about His response if it is ‘no’?  Can you ask Him to help you to accept this, even if your heart aches, knowing that He wants what is best for you. He may say ‘wait’.  How will you respond to such an answer?  He may say ‘yes’.  Then look for the unfolding of His plan.  Whatever His response, He will never leave you hopeless for He is the God of Hope and He loves you.

May God bless you as you praise Him today, whatever His response.  And may you find peace in His answer to you.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
