Night Glories

Psalm 141 : 2  NKJV

“Let my prayer be set before You as incense, 
  The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.”

Some of the most fragrant flowers in the garden stay tightly closed, or “sleep,” during the day.  They open only later in the afternoon and evening, perfuming the night air with their sweet scents.

The most significant of these late-bloomers is the moonflower.  Moonflowers look like white morning glories, except that their blossoms are enormous—up to eight inches across.  Each bloom lasts for only one night, but the scent more than makes up for the short performance.

Just as nature lends itself to day and night creations, so there are “morning people” who feel their best in the early hours of the day and “night people” who seem to bloom after dark.  If you are a late bloomer, fill the night air with the sweet fragrance of prayer before God this evening.

The Lord looks forward to your companionship and is waiting to hear from you.  Give Him your attention and listen to what He wants to tell you.  Treat God as you would a dear friend.

Review your schedule to find time you can commit to God.  Have no time?  You may be overlooking some ready-made times, such as your drive to and from work or your coffee break.  Find a place of isolation without distractions.

Jesus said, “Enter your closet” (Matthew 6 : 6).  This “closet” can be any place, any time you can be alone with Him.  Or you may want to designate one special place where you pray.

As you spend time seeking God during the night, you will bring a sweet fragrance into the throne room of God.  The Bible describes this beautifully in Revelation 8 : 3 : NKJV:

“And another Angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.”

Enjoy your night glories.

There is an old saying I often heard growing up that says: Bloom where you are planted.  It simply means that you are to use just what you have in your possession, right where you are presently located, without making  any excuses, so that you may accomplish the task you have determined or been assigned.

God created you in your mother’s womb.  He made you just the way you are for His predetermined purpose for your existence.  He made no mistakes with His creative processes.  You were designed for greatness and engineered to become highly successful.  God gifted you with everything that you would need in order to complete the mission that He predetermined for you to accomplish.  You got it all…everything that you will ever need to get the job done.  All you are to do is to fully Trust Him, stand on His Promises, and then start performing as best you are able.

Obedience to His instructions and fully responding to His guidance are the two initial steps that you are to start taking as you begin your personal journey to success.  Never doubt God and His Word.  Do not question Him or what is happening to you…It is all been decided in advance and you are now in the development phase of what God has designed for you.  You must go through it.  You must struggle to become stronger, you need to mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually grow to higher levels of achievement and maturity.  It is for these reasons you need to positively accept God’s plan for your life and complete your personal journey in preparation for the blessings and rewards God has in store for you.

There will always be struggles, dangers, toils, and snares in your walk through your Christian life.  They just are a fact of life.  Do not fear them.  Face into them.  Take them straight on and deal with them.  Look forward and upward all the while standing on the promises of God.  So what if you don’t think you have what is required to do the job you are faced with today…neither did most of the men and women of ancient days…God Almighty used them anyway.  You see, the real secret to your own success is for you to do something…not everything.  Stop trying to get all of your “ducks in a row.”  Just start doing with what you do have in your possession today!  Trust God to add everything else you will ever need to you and your efforts.

Day light or darkness makes no difference to God.  He has a plan for your life and He has already equipped you to achieve it.  Your role is to actively participate in the time and effort required to turn your dreams and His Plan into reality.

Let Go and Let God.

God’s Greatest Blessings to All of You……………..
