Hello everyone! Welcome back to “Moments Spent with God!” I truly hope and pray that you have been enjoying this brand new day!
Today, I was listening to a song by David Phelps, titled… “Do We Hear God Speak” and as I was listening to the song, the first thing that crossed my thoughts; is how we find it so easy to ask God for His help but yet we are too quick to leave the scene, while never taking the time to listen quietly for His response. One thing we need to remember; is that it takes two, to form a relationship and if one person is always doing the talking but never listening; then how can that relationship grow and flourish into something beautiful?
I remember a time, when I was relaxing on the daybed in my office, after a long day of work. As you can tell…I love my quiet moments with God and this was one day, when I had longed to hear God’s voice within my spirit. As I laid back on the daybed, I began to focus on the flames, from an electric fireplace heater that is in my office. As I watched each flame jumping from place to place, my mind began to relax, as though nothing mattered at the time. In fact, I began to feel the cares of the day melt from my thoughts and as I sat there quiet and empty before the Lord, I began to experience His presence within my thoughts.
How often do we run to God with a need…only to turn around and quickly walk away from His presence? Sometimes I wonder if we are the ones who abandon God, rather than Him being the One, who abandons us. Who knows…maybe He has the answer to our need, at the time we ask for His help but yet we never find that out because we are in too big of a hurry to move on to something else or maybe we just don’t anticipate His presence enough.
We all know that God can’t speak to us, like we speak to each other but He does have a way of working with our thoughts and hearts; that helps to point us in the right direction; that can walk us away from the problems we are experiencing at the time. You know…there was a time in my life, when I never saw God, in the way I see Him now but a moment came, when I began to let go of everything and open myself up to Him and make room for His presence to enter mine and that is when I began to feel Him come alive within my spirit.
Maybe today, we need to empty the clutter out of our hearts and just sit in God’s loving presence and welcome Him to a place…deep within the heart, where we can share in this special relationship that we long to have with Him? I believe that when we truly give God the time He deserves within this relationship; that this will be the time, when we will not only feel His presence at work within us but I also believe that this will be the time, when we may just hear His response to our need.
I don’t know about you but I long to feel God’s presence every day and I’m praying; that we will not only spend time with God and share our needs with Him but I also pray that we will give God the time He needs to respond to us.
Have a great day with God...hope to see you tomorrow, on “Moments Spent with God!”
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
