For some reason I got up extremely, early today. It was still dark. I made some tea, and sat before the Lord, reading my devotion book, and making some comments. This is my fourth day of forty, and I am agreeing with one other person. She is going the forty days on her own also. We don’t study together, but we are agreeing for forty, days.
I believe the author of our booklet is perceptive. She talks about finding the face of the Lord, and getting on your face before Him. It was awesome when I finally got down on the floor, and turned my face toward Him. I rolled over to get back up, and for my age it could have been difficult. I have trouble at times getting into our front door, because of the steps. To lie down on the floor, is dramatic, but I always find a way to get back up. This time I hung onto the huge table in the kitchen. It is solid wood, and sturdy for my weight.
We have 36 more days, but if they are like the first four, it will be awesome! Ed said, “When you finish the forty days, maybe you will turn around and do them again.”
I said, “Why would I do that? Do you know how long forty days is?”
I am sure he did, but I said, “I am willing.”
The author knows about finding His face. I have been on the floor more than any time in my life. I guess I better mop it, and make sure it is clean for the next time we get down on the floor to worship! Maybe God is working on us at home, so it will be easy to do this elsewhere. The move of the Lord comes, and people come broken before Him, and it doesn’t matter what they do. They are kneeling, lying on the floor, standing, sitting, and in line for ministry. I frankly don’t like religion, but when the real Presence of the Lord is there, awesome things happen. At times there is so much happening that the speaker may as well get on his knees before the Lord also. I have been to such meetings, and it was a regular service until God broke through the clouds and we were all hit with His Presence. When He is awesome, He is there in Power, love, and to say something to all who are willing to listen. This is when the Silence of the Lord is AWESOME! Bring it on, Lord.
