I Shall Incline My Ear

"I shall incline my ear to the Lord early in the morning." - Rosemarie

Because the Lord has called me into relationship, it is pertinent that I gain from such a communion when He awakens me early in the morning. While the house is still quite with family and dog still nestled under buried covers, it is an easy time for a busy mom and wife to just be—with no demands or lists to do. A time for me and my Lord to get reacquainted and address whatever is on my heart, and for an exchange of encouragement from Him as well, which is refreshing. For some an early cup of tea and a short devotional would suffice, but hear me Church, these have their place. However, I believe that early fellowship in conversation will be useful in the coming year. You will need it like bread and water -- to be confident in the Lord and find treasure in His safety. And in doing so, bring Him honor in all things!

The Spirit of God spoke in my heart the Word for 2016 very early this morning—obedience. And I’m not a bit surprised as it is an extension of what He has been teaching me these last few months. And as it was prophesied over me, “You desire to know Him better so He will reveal Himself in a better way in you, through you, and for you to explain. I will satisfy your thirst.”

Let the teachings here in this blog and in my home Bible Study be a memorial of all the Lord has taught me so that others may walk an easier path, have less to carry hidden within, and realize how much He loves you in spite of yourself.


“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:19-22

Return in January as God reveals more of His instruction on obedience as it pertains to 2016. Until then, incline your ear early next morning to the Lord, and seek Him while He may be found!

“The Lord GOD has given Me The tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear To hear as the learned. The Lord GOD has opened My ear; And I was not rebellious, Nor did I turn away.” Isaiah 50:4-5
