I have such hope for this year, when many are under the burden of life, I am more and more convinced that the quality of Life is determined by what I choose to spend my time looking at. In proverbs it states “as a man thinks in his heart so is he (Prov. 23:7) , and also in proverbs 3:6 ”In all your ways acknowledge Me and I WILL DIRECT your paths” Wow as I acknowledge God in even the minor affairs of life I can have an expectation of God himself directing my every path. That is staggering to me, that the God of the universe is willing and waiting to direct me. I have wasted so much time in the past trying to figure out life, my ministry, my purpose, and afterwards asking God to bless it when I could have asked and allowed wisdom to direct my every path. Some might say “How do you do this? How does God direct? I pray and it seems as if I am speaking into the air, what does this look like so I can find my path to the heart of the Farther? To begin to answer these questions, one must have a personal relationship with the Father, and the only way this can occur is accepting His son Jesus as your Lord and savior. If you have not done so, Stop right now, understand that the creator of all things, God, has sent His Son to die on a cross and pay the penalty for all the bad and sinful things you have done, if you can understand this, That God has done this for YOU, stop know and say, “I thank you God creator of both heaven and Earth for loving me to t he extent that you have sent Your son Jesus to die for me, and pay the penalty for all my sins so I do not have to, that you raised Jesus from the dead so I may have eternal life here now and in eternity to come, Thank you that I can now call you my Father.” Now that you have become a Child of God and a member of His household, we have the Spirit to bear witness to our Spirits that we are Children, Rom 8:16. Our Inward man the new man, our Spirit, is like a radio receiver which is able to pick up the frequency of the Holy Spirit. This is incredible, that the Spirit of God can now bear witness to my Spirit, a Divine communication between The Spirit of God and My Spirit can now take place. In 1 Cor 2:6-12 we see that their are things that our eye has not seen or ear heard concerning the things God has prepared for us who love Him, BUTTTTT He has given us His Spirit to reveal them to us, reveal to us the deep and intimate things in God’s heart, I don’t know about you but I want this, I need to hear and know those things that have been freely given to my by God. In the Gospel of John chapter 14, Jesus tells us that He is the Good Shepard and the SHEEP HEAR HIS VOICE, and will not follow a stranger, wow we have the potential to be able to hear His voiced so clearly that we will be able to discern between His voice and a strangers voice, If Jesus said this then it must be possible to achieve, so my quest each day is to hear Him more clearly.
