40 Days of Worship and Seeking the Lord Together

Pathway to Increased Attentiveness (March 27-April 5)

Today, we are starting the second 10-day segment of our 40-day journey together: a pathway to increased attentiveness.

Attentive: "a) the act or state of applying the mind to something, b) a condition of readiness for such attention involving especially a selective narrowing or focusing of consciousness and receptivity." (Miriam Webster Dictionary)

Narrowing our focus in order to selectively focus in on Jesus is not easy to do, especially in this world that's chock full of distraction. We've taken some time to refresh our hearts, to remind ourselves of Jesus' presence, and to receive His grace and truth. Now we're going to ask Him to help us listen and pay attention to His voice.

Rest, Rest. Rest in God's love. The only work you are required to do is to give your most intense attention to His still, small voice within." - Madame Jeanne Guyon

Day 11, Pathway to Attentiveness | March 27, 2011

John 10:14-18: "I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me -- just as the Father knows me and I know the Father -- and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life -- only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father."

The Good Shepherd knows you intimately and perfectly. Clear away the clutter of your heart, wipe away the enemy's lies and bask in this truth: He laid down His life for you.
