How long has it been since you "Poured Out"?
"So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out." II Kings 4:5
Yesterday we shut the door behind us to be alone in the presence of God.
Today we see why it's so important. It is an opportunity to "pour out," to empty ourselves in His presence. In the Old Testament Hannah did it. Look at the I Samuel 1:10-16 language:
- "bitterness of soul"
- "wept sore"
- "look at the affliction"
- "spake in her heart..only her lips moved"
- "sorrowful spirit"
- "but have poured out my soul before the Lord"
- "abundance of my complaint and grief"
Ask yourself: "Really, when was the last time I did that? The result: God granted her the desire of her soul.
Finding the time to "pour out" today...
