I’m a great fan of soaking; as in when we take the time to sit, lie, stand or whatever in God’s presence and allow Him to have His way so that whatever needs to be dealt with, released, restored and renewed God can do in us. I’ve learnt that soaking is a far quicker and easier way for God to work these things out in us. Just as a pot or frypan can get food stuck to it that no amount of scrubbing will move without damaging the pan, so too we can have “stuff” stuck to and in our lives that God knows will be better removed by us choosing to soak in His loving power and presence, rather than having a whole lot of scratching, poking and prodding to try and deal with an issue.
Soaking allows us to quietly sit, just like a dish in warm soapy water so that eventually anything that doesn’t belong in our lives just lifts off and floats away. As we soak we also can receive anything God wants to bless and impart to us.
Today whatever sort of day or week you’ve been having, take some time to soak. To simply sit and ask Holy spirit to come and wash over and through your life as He gently soaks away any sin, residue, tiredness, or pain and replaces it with strength, freedom and an infilling of His presence. Soak and let God be God.
“Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10)
“Meditate on your bed, and be still”. (Psalm 4:4)
Jesus taught his disciples, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
Prayer: Lord thank you for your hand of blessing on my life. Today I ask Holy spirit for you to come and wash over and through me. I’m just going to stay in your presence and let you to do whatever you want to do in and through me today. In Jesus name Amen
