I don't usually view myself as a person who grumbles a lot. But sometimes the grumbling can take place in forms that I'm blinded to. Daily Life devotion puts it right on the spot when it says we complain or are dissatisfied whenever we don't get to fulfil what we want to do instead of what the Spirit wants us to do. It points to a deeper root where a part of us still desire to go our own way apart from God. How I need God to renew me everyday to deliver me from this, to put off the old self and put on the new self. And there is no way to grow in this except through real practice..

Quiet time with God

Is my quiet time something I need to clear off my todo list? I'm guilty of treating my time with God as a task item on my schedule, just to go through a routine..

Don't miss the point that the treasure is found in the quiet time itself, that time with God. Would you treasure, value that time so that there wouldn't be a tension to quickly finish QT and get on with other things? Where QT is not a roadblock but the destination in itself?

It takes a discipline to simply be still and wait upon God with no agenda. To desire and press in beyond head knowledge or the feeling of God's presence, close enough to hear his heartbeat, what's close to his heart..
