Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - March 22, 2010

Good morning,
Our devotion for today comes from Isaiah 6:1 "In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a high and lofty throne, and His robe filled the temple." 
Wherever you are today, (Selah) think on this; when Michelle first moved to the new city she was delighted by its beautiful trees, lush gardens, and stately homes. As she grew accustomed to her daily drive to work, however, she began to ignore the beauty around her.  She had fallen into a routine that was comfortable but limiting.  No longer did she notice the colors, sights, or smells that had once invigorated her.
The decline in Michelle's driving experience can be likened to a "spiritual dry spell," a condition in which a Christian becomes immune to, or unaware of, the excitement of a growing relationship with God.
Though dry spells can be frustrating, they can be conquered.  The solution can be as simple as studying a different book of the Bible or listening to an encouraging sermon, and/or attending Bible study.  One of the most effective ways to combat dry spells is to set aside a period of focused, uninterrupted time alone with God.
If you are able to do so, go to a place where you can temporarily escape the demands of daily life and give God your undivided attention.  Use this time to study His Word and to seek His face.  Thank Him for what He has given you:  the ablility to love and learn, the chance to experience His creation, and the ultimate gift of eternal life through His Son Jesus the Christ. 
Have a blessed Spiritually aware day!
Your brother in Christ,
J. H. Flakes, III
