Last night, after a day during which I felt completely exhausted, I decided to go to bed early. Right before that decision, I’d opened up the blank “Add New Post” page on ‘obsecrations.’ I did not have a thought as what to write — which is usual for me, at least until I get started — but, as soon as I faced the whiteness of the page, I said to myself, “No, not tonight. I’m too tired. I’ve already written one post for GRACE PARTAKERS; one is enough.” I closed my computer, and headed for sleep.
Sleep did not come. Usually when I crawl into bed, sleep is almost immediate. I tossed and turned, my mind reviewing the future. Normally I don’t review the future; I certainly try not to rehash the past.
Right before I finally fell into peace, I thought to myself, “I guess I was supposed to write a post for ‘obsecrations.’ Hey Lord, sorry about that.” Below, I am going to quote a verse about turning from wicked ways which is — yes — to imply that not following the prompting of the Holy Spirit is certainly not holy, and is most definitely not seeking God’s face.
“If My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14, NIV)
