21 Days to the Manifest Presence of God: Day 5 (Hear the Sizzle)

This entry is part 5 of 22 in the series 21 Days to the Manifest Presence of God

Welcome to Day 5 of my series about developing an awareness of God’s presence! You can refer back to Day 1 of “21 Days to the Manifest Presence of God” if you’d like to know my backstory for the series.

I encourage you to read all the posts in the series if you are just joining usEach day’s assignment builds on the previous assignments, and they are all vitally important! (Be sure to subscribe to receive my daily posts so you won’t miss anything.)

Are you ready for Day 5? Here we go:

Day 5: Saving to Your Heart Drive

Over the last 4 days, we have learned a lot. We learned on Day 1 about how God is with us all the time. Day 2 was about “the wonder of it all.”

Day 3 was about praying openly and honestly to your Daddy God. Day 4 was about asking for His help with each thing you encounter throughout your day.

Today I’m going to share a secret with you.

I have a special prayer that I pray all the time. God always answers it for me, and He will always answer it for you. (This is one of my secret weapon prayers that I’m writing about in my new ebook, “21 Prayers That Will Power Your Life,” which will be released in 2013.)

Here’s the secret:

We can download new truths into our minds, but we need God’s help to “save them to our heart drive.”

So here’s what I pray:

“Dear Father, please sear Your Word into my heart like a brand.”

When I pray this, in my mind’s eye I can see God with a branding iron, searing His truth into my heart.

I see Him actually making a brand out of His Word–like ranchers brand cattle–and burning His truth into the flesh of my heart and mind. Making His truth a literal part of who I am.

I can smell the smoke. I can hear the sizzle as He changes the landscape of my heart to match His Word.

As the Bride says to her Beloved in Song of Solomon 8:6, “Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm…”

Take a moment to watch this video, which shows Misty Edwards singing Song of Solomon 8:6-7 in her song “You Won’t Relent”:

Powerful, huh?

So here’s your assignment for Day 5:

Pray this prayer: “Dear Father, sear Your Word into my heart like a brand.”

  • Ask Him to sear the awareness of His presence into your heart.
  • Ask Him to sear the understanding of how awesome He is into your heart.
  • Ask Him to teach you how to pray, and sear the ability to pray into your heart.
  • Ask Him to help you acknowledge Him in every mundane part of your day. Ask Him to sear into your heart the understanding that He WANTS to help you all day long.

Pray this prayer often, starting today. He will answer. You will start to notice the heart change. Asking God to sear His Word into your heart is how you get His truth “saved” into your “heart drive!”

Take a moment to pray this prayer right now. Can you see God answering in your mind’s eye? Does the imagery of God branding His Word into your heart excite you? Leave a comment below and tell me about it if so!

  1. I absolutely love these studies!!!!!!! They are short but oh so powerful!! I read and do the particular day and am hungry for more! I don’t peek, though it is tempting! Thank you Jamie from the bottom of my heart!

    1. Yay! Go Jesus! I’m so glad you’re enjoying them, Hilda! Thank you for reading and I pray the rest of the study would keep on doing your soul and spirit good!

  2. I (and my family!) love them, too. Yesterday I decided to take a day off so we could all let the truths we’d learned so far just sink in, and my 7 yr old came up to me and reminded me that we hadn’t done our devotion yet! He’s grasping this in his own way, and is learning so much. I believe this is an answer to the prayers we’ve prayed for him that he would come into a very personal knowledge of God, more than just the stories he knows.

    1. That is so awesome! Proves there’s no “Junior Holy Spirit” for the little guys! Same Spirit, same Jesus, same hunger! Thanks for letting me know!

    I have started The 21 days to manifest The presence of God and I can’t see the video in day 4. When I click, it says the video doesn’t exist 🙁 I’m curious what was it about and if It can be uploaded again. Thank you in advance!
