What’s Up? Week of 6/9/2020

During this time of being “quarantined,” I have absolutely LOVED having extra time not commuting to work and, instead, using that time to really press into our Lord, to ask Him to show me His ways and revelations in his word and the supernatural Kingdom. I’ve found tons of resources, by the way – from YouTube videos, to scholarly writings, to television and radio shows – that you can also find to help you with your own walk.

I personally see this time in my life not as a burden or restriction for me; instead, I see it as a way to work with our Lord to cleanse and heal my soul, open my spiritual eyes/ears and senses to see/understand what is really going on in the natural and supernatural realms. Between you and me, I’ve actually been praying that my office will allow me to keep working at home for a while longer. I counted it up, and I have a total of three extra hours each day by not driving to and from work. That’s three hours to spend working on the most important relationship in my life (don’t worry, Tim knows he’s second banana in this sense, and he’s working on his relationship with God, too!).

Tim and I tend to go different directions with our time – he spends a lot of time reading about philosophy of religion and I’m more attuned to the softer, “walking in the spirit” types of teachings. But it’s always amazing how often those paths cross. The other day, I found out he was deep into the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, and I was, too! He was dutifully reconciling some seemingly contradictory statements from R.C. Sproul and William Lane Craig had (he managed to do it) and I was doing exercises designed to learn about the supernatural action/interaction of the Holy Spirit in our lives and how to get to know Him and free Him to work more and reveal more to us.

When I wrote my book, I said something like, “God will talk to you in the way that you listen.” I might have even used the example of a billboard, saying that if you’re likely to seek messages from God by looking at billboards, don’t be surprised when one of His messages pops up on a billboard. If you’re thinking about how better to hear from God, remember that He’s already trying to speak to you in the ways in which you are comfortable. If that’s through videos, then watch more videos. If it’s through reading scripture, then do more reading. But my point is that I encourage you to try to find the same silver lining to this quarantine that I have found. If you suddenly have more time due to skipping other odds and ends, like driving, consider pressing in and seeing what all God would like to say to you today.

Keep pressing in, Saints!
