Hello everyone…and how is your day going? I truly pray that you all are doing fine…and that you will come to truly experience a God, who is greater than anything we may walk through in this life.
This morning, I was thinking on what God may have for me to share with you today, as a means of encouragement…and as I was seeking Him with all my heart; this is what came to my thoughts… “I asked>I listened>He showed me>I did it>and it worked.” In other words…these are the things that can truly lead us to God’s richest blessings.
First of all…how many of us have even taken the time, to ask God for His help…and I don’t mean that we should beg Him for His help. In fact…I have learned throughout my lifetime that begging is actually a lack of faith because we are actually trying to convince Him to help us, rather than trusting Him for His best.
Through my own experiences in life, I have come to see that when we can allow our hearts and minds to fall freely before His throne…in a humble way, while seeking for His will to be done, rather than what we feel He should do for us; then that is when we will be open to Him, instead of ourselves.
Now once we are open to God; then we should follow through, by listening for that still small voice within our spirits…a voice that can guide us through these difficult times. How many of us can say that we have gone to God for help; but yet there didn’t seem to be any response? Could it be that we didn’t stay around long enough to find out? You know…so many times, I think that we are in such a hurry to have our prayer answered; that we go to God and give Him our need…only to run back, to where we once were…before coming to Him for help…which really doesn’t give Him a chance to respond. We must remember that it’s when we are open to Him; that we begin to experience His loving presence.
Once we have asked and listened for God’s response to our need; then we must be open to His ways, rather than our own. For example…let’s say that someone was given a treasure map, to the greatest treasure ever; but yet they just sat there with the map in hand…doing nothing; would they ever find the treasure? In a similar way, when we aren’t willing to humble ourselves and accept God’s help, in the way He so desires; then how will we ever receive, what He longs to do for us?
You know…I have actually come to see that when I ask…listen and allow Him to show me the way, while following through, with what He is asking of me; then everything does come together and work out for the best.
In Deuteronomy 28:1-3 we read… “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. 2) All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God: 3) you will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.”
So many times, I feel that we don’t experience God, in a very real way; because we are looking for Him to follow through, according to our plans and ideas. Don’t we realize that if we already knew what to do…and if we already knew it would work out; that we wouldn’t need to go to God in the first place? If we are going to truly find the answers, to these difficult moments we’re facing; then first, we must be willing to listen and obey…and then follow through with God’s plan for our lives. Once we are willing to humbly do so; that is when I truly believe that we will come to see…that everything will be just fine.
Have a great day…and may you truly experience a God, who longs so much to help you during these difficult times! See ya soon!
Many…many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
