By spending time in The Chair we provide God an opportunity to speak direction into our lives. Not that God is incapable of speaking to us outside of The Chair, but we often have a hard time listening when we’re cruising along at 100 mph. We need to slow down if we’re to hear and understand God’s will for our lives.
We know how God desires for us to act in every situation—directed by the Holy Spirit. In Galatians 5.22-23, Paul describes the traits of a person who is actively keeping “in step with the Spirit” (Galatians 5.25).
One helpful practice is to read the list of the fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5.22-23, and ask God to show you which trait you are in need of. Some days we need a fresh infusion of joy. Other days, it’s patience or peace. Some days we just need to be faithful in the midst of less than ideal circumstances.
Today take a minute to reread Galatians 5.22-23 and identify one trait you are in need of today. Ask God to help you practice that trait in all your interactions of the day. Make this a regular practice of your time in The Chair.
