God Will Reward You
We live in a world that is used to living on two different planets. Sometimes we socialize on earth. Most today primarily socialize on the internet. Yes, technology has made it possible for us to be connected to the entire world at once. Technology has also overwhelmed and distracted us in many ways.
To counter the negative effects of social media. God has often led me to fast from it many times. To step away from keeping up with what everyone else is saying or doing. Instead, to focus on what God is saying and wanting me to do. I’ve stayed away from social media as long as eighty days straight before. This time God has led me to take a 10 day fast from any online distractions.
Well, it’s only been 36 hours and God is already rewarding me. I’ve got way more clarity, focus, and a greater sense of peace. My prayer life has been elevated. God has been revealing things in my life that need to change or be readjusted. God has my full attention as I continue to push aside anything necessary in my pursuit of His will.
What has God revealed to you that needs to change or go in your life? What might you intentionally fast from so that you can more intentionally pursue God? I can promise you nothing in this world can satisfy you like Jesus. Don’t let your sin or out of order priorities hinder your pursuit of God. I can promise you God will reward your wholehearted pursuit of Him every time.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” Hebrews 12:1-3
