“I will watch and see what He says to me.” Hab.1:1
When Habakkuk said these words— the Holy Spirit saw to it that these words were included in the Scriptures. What this phrase shows us, is Spirit led prayer is where we are attuned to hear His voice.
Habakkuk wanted to hear God’s voice so he went to his watchtower— to block out all other voices. He knew what others were saying but he wanted to hear what God had to say about the situation he found himself in.
To be Spirit led in our prayers we must want to hear his voice.
As the Holy Spirit leads us in our praying— may we find ourselves saying, I wonder how He’s going to answer our prayers. How is God’s glory going to be seen in this perplexity?
The VOICE translation says it this way,
Proverbs 3:5, Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely;
never depend upon your own ideas and inventions.
6 Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish,
and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead.
Father, may the perplexities we face in 2015 drive us to our watchtower to hear what you will say to us.
