At His Feet

Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God. – Romans 12:2

With our lives growing and practically consumed with busyness, we must make time for God. He is the lamp to our feet, and He lights our path. But how can we know where He tells us to go if we never step out of our mundane tasks and into the Most High’s presence? Are we willing to come under God’s discipline and learn what He wants to teach? We can do this by sitting at His feet.

But seek first God’s Kingdom, and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. – Matthew 6:33

We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught, but after spending time alone with God, we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power, and strength.

– Charles Stanley

Spending time with God cleanses us from our worries and replenishes our strength for what lies ahead. Christ renews us; He is our guide through life. Ever felt like nothing you do is working? Maybe you feel stuck like everything around you is moving and you’re not. Or even find yourself going backward. We won’t make it on our efforts alone as Christians Christ is our power supply, and many Christians are running on E because after they take off, they never return to the power supply (Christ) to stay filled.

Early in the night, he rose up and went out, and departed into a deserted place, and prayed there. – Mark 1:35

Sitting at His feet can be challenging, but as you make it a habit, you will see your appetite and awareness of His presence grow.

Here are some tips to help you spend time at His feet:

Invite God into your day when you wake up and close your day with God. Spending at least 30 minutes in the morning and night in God’s presence.

  • Praying– Tell God what you have planned and then surrender your plans to Him. Then telling Him about your day and how it went.
  •  Reading His Word- I recommend a verse of the day that you meditate on throughout the day.
  •  Silence- After you have prayed, let Him do the talking. Let Him speak to you. I find that my most memorable times with God are times when I haven’t said a word. BE SURE TO WRITE DOWN THE THINGS GOD REVEALS TO YOU!

Being at His feet is a place of comfort and renewal. God wants to speak to us, but often we are too busy to hear what He has to say. For the next 7 days, I challenge us to spend at least 1 hour at His feet daily. At the end of this challenge, God will have revealed some amazing things to us. I also believe that we will experience God in a new way.
Be sure to return after completing the challenge, and share your testimony in the comments below!

Prayer: Father, you are the creator of all things; we thank you for another day and the desire to hear from you. Help us not conform to this world’s ways but to be transformed by renewing our minds. Help us to first seek the Kingdom of God, and let us find comfort in knowing that you will provide everything we need. Lord, let us not worry about the wrong things, help us to focus our sights on you. In Jesus name, we pray, Amen!

    Our Daily Bread is a good description for how we must treat the Word of God. It is like food. It’s our sustenance and we can’t go living without it… unless of course you’re a celiac 🙂 That’s me, but I digress! Great post!

    This is true. I have really been experiencing this. As I make the time each morning to spend with Him, my craving for His presence is growing all the more. It’s funny that *this* is the blog post I started with – right now. I am preparing to go to bed, and debated on if I want to set my alarm for earlier. I am soo exhausted and low on energy. I know I need to, I want to on some level, but it is a commitment. One that is worthy of taking. One I need to take. One I will be taking (I hope). Thanks! Heading over to to read the rest of the article.
