Rhapsody of Realities | Saturday April 16 - 2016 | Topic - Give Him Your Attention


Opening Scripture

Listen to what I am saying; pay attention to what I am telling you (Isaiah 28:23 GNB).

Some people don’t pay attention to the different activities of the Spirit that happen during the service when they’re in Church. They get carried away such that even though the presence and power of God could be so strong in that environment, their lives are not improved, because they’re distracted.

Your undivided attention is so vital each time you’re in the presence of the Lord in the Church, and even during your personal devotions. God always has something special for you, a word for you that’ll increase your glory, but you’ve got to pay the right currency—your attention. When you give Him your attention, you get everything He has for you.

Your undivided attention is so vital each time you’re in the presence of the Lord in the Church, and even during your personal devotions. God always has something special for you, a word for you that’ll increase your glory, but you’ve got to pay the right currency—your attention. When you give Him your attention, you get everything He has for you.

Give the Lord your attention; give Him your heart; give Him your mind. Let Him minister to you, and through you. Hebrews 10:22 says, "Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith….". This doesn’t mean to "come close" to God, because you’re already in Him, and He in you.

Rather, it refers to turning your attention to Him, making Him your focus. It’s a terminology that refers to a consciousness of your spirit, because we can’t draw any nearer to Him than we already did; we’re one with Him.

Howbeit, our hearts can be far away. That’s why the Bible says, "draw near with a true heart." So, every opportunity you have to fellowship with the Lord, give Him your full attention, and open your heart to receive all He has for you.


PRAYER


Blessed Lord, I thank you for the blessing of serving you, and worshipping you from my spirit. You’re all that thrills my soul; you’re more than life to me! I love you, precious Holy Spirit, and my whole heart is focused on you even now, to receive your glorious touch, and be transformed in your presence, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Matthew 15:7-9;
7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Proverbs 23:26;
My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.

Proverbs 4:20
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
