“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!” (Psalm 118:24)
How do you spend your last hour of the day before you turn yourself in and rest?
Your last hour can be the most coveted hour of your day.
It’s the hour where you unwind, unplug, and exhale all of the day’s burdens.
Some people dig in a good hearty book before jumping into bed.
Others spend the last hour on social media or watching TV.
Shouldn’t our last hour be given to the One who is waiting for us with open arms?
Your Heavenly Father is eagerly waiting to hear from you at the end of the day.
As you spend your last hour, you need to look back on your day and see God’s goodness in the midst of the day’s grind.
It’s important to sit, unwind, and reflect on the grace He poured out throughout the day.
If you look back, you’ll discover all the wonderful opportunities He unfolded to draw you closer and closer to Him.
How Are You Using Your Room?
“But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly” – Matthew 6:6
The bible tells us to go and pray in our room.
Your room is your sanctuary.
It’s a place where all of your emotional walls are free to come down.
You need to reflect and pray in your last hour in a quiet corner and come with your petitions with a humble heart.
Don’t come to your Heavenly Father with demands and expectancy.
May your prayers and devotionals be true and genuine.
One thing you can do in your last hour is open up a journal and record what He has done for you that day.
As the world’s noise grows quiet, let the feverish concerns of your day be stilled.
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!” – Psalm 46:10
Your Last Hour of the Day Could be Your Most Encouraging
May you lay down the things that hinder you from listening to your Heavenly Father, and be sensitive to what the Holy Spirit is whispering.
Evening prayers are more intimate with God.
It’s a perfect opportunity to reflect on His mercy, grace, and blessings He bestowed upon you.
Reflect on the opportunities He gave you to show grace and love to others.
Did you respond to His promptings?
Were you His hands and feet throughout the day?
What did you miss?
It is the hour where you’re filled with encouragement.
And in that hour He renews your spirit.
It’s also a perfect time to lay your worries at His feet and praise Him despite your circumstances.
There’s a saying,
“If we turn our worries into worship, he will turn our battles into blessings.”
Let’s use the last hour to praise and worship the Lord our God.
Let’s rejoice in what the day brought forth, for it is the day He has perfectly created!
