Happy Sunday, ladies! I hope you’ve had a good weekend and you’re ready to start a new week.
As I was thinking about what I wanted to write today, I was struggling. I had prayed, and I didn’t feel God was speaking anything through what I had read, or even through anything that had happened this past week.
It almost felt like I was a little spiritually dry.
Sometimes that can sneak up on us, and we don’t even realize it. I started thinking about my week, had I spent enough time in God’s word, had I taken time to be still and listen?
Seasons of spiritual dryness can come, but there are some things we can do when we fill spiritually dry.
1. Confess it
Tell Jesus you’re feeling dry. He knows it, and he understands. Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
God wants you to cry out to Him. A prayer for more of Him is a prayer that will never be denied.
2. Change up your Bible reading
We know reading God’s word is key for igniting our spiritual lives, but we struggle to understand what to do when our Bible reading doesn’t seem to be transforming us into the image of Christ.
One thing you can do is change how you normally read the Bible. Try reading a different version of the Bible.
I love the Amplified version, The Message, and the New Living Translation when I’m reading a book in the Bible. Also, try different devotional books.
3. Listen to Praise Music
This is one of my favorite things to do. I crank my praise music up and have my own little worship service. Music speaks to me, and many times when I’m going through something, a song will come on that reminds me to keep focusing on Christ.
We’ve been singing this song at church for several weeks. I love the story behind the song.
Jonathan and Melissa Helser of Bethel Music wrote it as a powerful declaration over the life of their friend’s son, Jaxon. For a moment they let unbelief set in and weren’t sure God was going to come through.
A song suddenly came out of their mouths, and they started to sing a powerful declaration against the giant Jaxon was facing.
I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me
What giant are you facing today? Do you need to raise a hallelujah?
Have a blessed day!
