MESSAGE FOR THE DAY: 29th May 2022 | ODB | Our Daily Bread Devotional — Pressing Pause to Pray

The fire hydrant gushed into the street, and I saw my opportunity. Several cars had splashed through before me, and I thought, What a great way to get a free wash! My car hadn’t been cleaned for a month and the dust was thick. So I fired it up and headed into the deluge.

Crack!

It happened so fast. The sun had already beaten down on my black car that morning, heating its glass and interior. But the water from the hydrant was frigid. As soon as the cold gush hit the hot windshield, a crack struck like lightning from top to bottom. My “free” car wash ended up costing me plenty.

If only I had “pressed pause” beforehand to think or even to pray. Ever have a moment like that? The people of Israel did, under far weightier circumstances. God had promised to help them drive out other nations as they entered the land He’d given them (Joshua 3:10) so they wouldn’t be tempted by false gods (Deuteronomy 20:16–18). But one of the nations saw Israel’s victories and used stale bread to trick them into believing they lived far away. “The Israelites sampled their provisions but did not inquire of the Lord. Then Joshua made a treaty of peace” (Joshua 9:14–15, italics added), unknowingly circumventing God’s instructions.

When we make prayer a first resort instead of a last, we invite God’s direction, wisdom, and blessing. May He help us remember to “press pause” today.

Reflect & Pray

What decision have you rushed into instead of talking it over with God? What do you need to discuss with Him today?

Thank You, Father, for giving wisdom “generously” and “without finding fault” (James 1:5) to those who ask. Please help me to pause more to talk to You.

THE SALVATION PRAYER

Thank you for reading Devotional Here Today On Impacttunes. If you have not done so already, please give your life to the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

Say the following prayer

Dear Father,
In the name of Jesus, I come to you. I accept that I am not in tune with You and that I desire to be. Please forgive me for all of my sins. According to the Bible, if I confess with my lips, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, I will be saved.
