137. What Happens When We Invite God Into Our Days

by | Mar 19, 2024 | Podcast

Do you typically invite God into your day?

Do you ask Him to walk with you through your moments? On the days when I begin them with Him, I do this well. On the days I don’t, well I don’t. This is one of the reasons I’m so set on starting my day with God. It truly makes all the difference for me. But don’t you think our days would be much more spirit- and hope-filled if we invited God into every one of them?

In last week’s episode 136, That Time God Went with Us on Vacation, I shared how my husband and I had just returned from a 10-day vacation, and how we invited God to go on the trip with us. From the initial prayer we voiced as we left our home in the wee hours of the morning of our first day, we asked God to lead us, guide us, and to travel with us. I’m so glad we did because doing so, I believe, impacted our vacation in ways I couldn’t expect in that moment. If you haven’t listened to last week’s episode, I encourage you to do so. It’s like a “part 1” to this episode.

So yes, we invited God to go with us, and He accepted!

The thing is, this world isn’t conditioned to invite God in.

This world tells us we can do it all on our own and we can handle it all. How many times have you heard, “You’ve got this!,” or have heard others say to themselves, “I’ve got this!”? I don’t know about you, but I don’t got anything on my own. I just don’t. But with God I do.

If we park for a minute in this chapter of John 15, it clearly reveals to us the secret of success and flourishing. It’s remaining in Jesus. It’s abiding in Him, and clinging to Him. Verse 4 in that chapter reads, “Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me” (NIV).

When we invite Him in, we remain in Him.

I share a few of what I call, “God-incidences” on our vacation and how I saw God bless us and provide for us. Plus we look at Philippians 4:6-7, which is a key reminder for what happens when we invite God into our days.

Friend, let’s invite God into every day. This is too important not to. I’m cheering you on and praying for you today. God bless you!
