The Basics:

      As in any discipline, the basics must be reviewed and embraced over and over and over.

     We all need to hear again and again how critical it is to be consistent in the Word of God and in prayer.  There can be no effective prayer without the fuel of the Word, and there is no application of the Word without prayer.

     The devotional life is the number one target of the enemy.  Why is that?  Because without it, Jesus morphs into a belief instead of a present Person.

     Soldier of The Cross, you would not neglect brushing your teeth or bathing.  Why is that?  Because they are essential to health.  

     We need acute sight and hearing.  We need to be attune to the Indwelling Holy Spirit. 

     Fight for this!  Give it your all.  The requirement is not extended lingering.  It is consistency.

     Craving Him is the result of meeting with Him consistently.

     This is what your life is about.

     Bring it to Him and ask Him to be reminded.  Write down your verses and put them on your refrigerator.  Say them to the mirror.  Sing.  Sing.  Sing.

     Tell Him you’re longing to meet Him in your devotions.  Tell Him aloud.
