Listening to God Obediently

Listening to God Obediently

I was taken by two quotes today. They talk about two different things – prayer and obedience- yet they seem to talk about the same thing: listening to God. That seems to be the ultimate thing for all who want to know and be known by God. How are prayer and obedience linked to that? Let’s find out. Jesus himself talked about obedience meaning love for God. Clearly, that is a good place to start our exploration. The person who…

Let God Do the Talking

Let God Do the Talking

I realized it’s been years since I’ve written anything on silence or solitude in my blog. How about you? Are you a fan of silence? Is silence something we are not too eager to be reminded of? We even might read about it but implementing it into our lives is not on our top priority list. Yet it should. It does bring blessings to our lives because in silence we meet our God. Silence is also the key to spiritual growth….

Invitation to Listen

Invitation to Listen

How do you communicate with God? Most often people say “through prayer”. And that’s great. Just don’t forget prayer is a two-way conversation. Prayer is not just about you telling God what’s wrong with your life. Prayer is also about listening to God. Yes, God still speaks today. God wants to communicate with you directly. God’s invitation to listen is real. God’s invitation to listen is for you Yes, you’re invited. God wants to interact with you. Not just once…

How to Adjust Your Life to God

How to Adjust Your Life to God

Do you adjust your life to God? Or do you expect God to serve you? Your answers to these questions reveal who is the center of your life. People whose lives are based on selfishness think about selfish things, but people whose lives are based on the Spirit think about things that are related to the Spirit. 6 The attitude that comes from selfishness leads to death, but the attitude that comes from the Spirit leads to life and peace. 7 So…

Guided by God Alone

Guided by God Alone

  Many of us want to be guided by God alone. It’s a wonderful concept, isn’t it? But how do you put it in practice in real life? How does God guide us these days? How can we live for God alone? The best advice comes from Jehoshaphat in the Bible: “But before you do anything, ask God for guidance.” (2 Chronicles 18:4, MSG,*) Whatever you do, start with asking God for guidance. Then your project is not in your…

WhatsApp seems to be the way to instant message these days. It’s a fast and easy way to keep the communication lines open with your inner circles. What about God? Is he in your inner circle of communication? Do you WhatsApp with God? Do you open God’s WhatsApp messages to you? Or do you ignore them? Is God your first go to person whenever you want to share something? Or has someone replaced him in your life? Smart phones and…

Wisdom for Christian Living

Wisdom for Christian Living

How do you obtain wisdom for Christian living? Do you bank on your own reason or do you somehow rely on God? I think we all would like to think we are trusting God and not ourselves, right? But are you really seeking God’s wisdom? Or do you end up accidentally relying on your own reasoning day after day? Too often what really happens is far from the ideal. We intend to pray but we forget. We want to read…

Being in God’s Presence

Being in God’s Presence

The word God gave me for this year is devotion. Hence I’ve been trying to learn to sit in God’s presence without my own agenda. Just to enjoy God. Nothing else. In January I wrote: “I want to be seen by God and I want to see God. I want to meet God in his terms. I want to spend time in quiet adoration. I want to devote my heart and mind to God. I want to sit in his…

Quest for God’s Will, part 4/4

Quest for God’s Will, part 4/4

This week we’ve been searching for God’s will. We can be certain that God wants to be found and he will personally teach us how to live in his will. Jesus said, “Don’t bicker among yourselves over me. You’re not in charge here. The Father who sent me is in charge. He draws people to me—that’s the only way you’ll ever come. Only then do I do my work, putting people together, setting them on their feet, ready for the…
