Keeping a Journal

Habakkuk 2:2-3
Then the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.  For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false.  Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.

Spending time with the Lord is always an adventure.  You never know when or how God will speak to you.  As you seek the Him, you  will find more and more that He will speak to you, filling you with revelation.  You will hear from Him concerning your personal walk with Him, your home life, your ministry, your career, etc.  He may tell you new ventures to launch or old things to cut out of your life.  The point is, whenever you hear a clear word from God for your life, write it down!

So often we miss out on God’s best because we forget what we heard, or we alter it along the way.  It is good to be able to look back in a journal and see the conversations we’ve had with the Lord.  Make a point to have a journal with you as you spend time with the Lord – and use it to record what you have learned.

Keep your eyes and ears open.  God will speak to someone who is prepared to listen.  Keeping a journal shows that you value the voice of the Lord.  If you have never tried it, begin today recording what you learn in your private times with Him.  The rewards are well worth the extra effort.
