“O Lord, now I have heard your report, and I worship you in awe” (Habakkuk 3:2 TLB).
I know I have said this and maybe you have too! “God never speaks to me.” I have learned this though; if I want to hear Him speak, I need to worship HIM. No, not one hour a week or at Easter or Christmas eve. Worship Him daily, hourly, minute by minute in your thoughts, words, and deeds.
Continually thank Him for His presence in your life. Thank Him that He is interested in our life. God, the Creator wants to know how your day is going. Thank Him for all answered prayer.
God gives us a vision. God gives us a dream. God give us a heart’s desire. He has put that in our hearts so we thank Him in worship to Him for doing that.
Prayer should be a dialogue and not a monologue. Learn to have a conversation with God, just as you would your earthly father. He hears us when we pray and He answers us when we ask questions. He wants to talk daily. He loves us that much! Give it a shot! Try talking to Him faithfully every day. It has revolutionized my walk with Him.
We cannot hear Him if we do not know Him. There are 3 basic levels to knowing God.
RECOGNITION: Most everyone makes it to the recognition level as we know God is
there but we really do not know him.
ACQUAINTANCE: We know Him a little but do not know Him real well or just a couple of
FRIENDSHIP: This is where God wants us to get to. He wants us to live and dwell here.
He wants to be our friend. How much do you know about your best
friend or BFF. You talk to your best friend ALL the time and God wants
MY PRAYER TODAY:
FATHER GOD, I AM TRULY AMAZED THAT YOU, THE CREATOR OF ALL, WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND. LOOK AT WHAT HE DID IN ORDER THAT WE COULD BE FRIENDS. SENT HIS ONLY SON, WHO WAS PERFECT, TO BE RIDICULED, BEATEN AND SACRIFICED IN MY PLACE. THAT IS SOME KIND OF FRIEND. WHY DO WE IGNORE HIM THEN. HAVE A CONVERSATION NOW WITH GOD. I WANT TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM ALL THE TIME EVERY DAY. THANK YOU GOD YOU CARE ABOUT EVERY DETAIL OF MY LIFE. JESUS I WANT TO KNOW MORE AMD MORE EVERY DAY.
I WANT TO DEPEND ON YOU FOR GUIDANCE IN MY JOB, FAMILY, FUTURE AND EVERY OTHER AREA OF MY LIFE.
LORD, SAVIOR, I WANT YOU TO MANAGE MY LIFE. I WILL FOLLOW YOU. I WILL TRUST YOU.
I HOPE AND PRAY ALL WHO READ THIS WILL BELIEVE ON THIS PRAYER AS WELL.
