-Hearing From God each Morning: 365 daily devotions, Joyce Meyer, April 14
How precious to know our Lord and Savior cares so much that He would use any means possible to get our attention. I remember a friend commented that the Lord seemed to be using an unbeliever to speak to someone close to her. It made me stop and think. So many times I have preconceived notions of who our Lord is. I place Him in a box that my small sinful mind can only conceive. I realize, it is only Him that will allow me to see past me, to see past my truth and to see what is His truth.
Do you do this? Do you believe God for His promises? I love the Beth Moore study, Believing God. Its challenge--you believe IN God, but do you BELIEVE God. We cannot have that personal relationship with our precious heavenly Father without first spending time with Him. Asking Jesus into our hearts as our personal Lord and Savior is first and foremost. After that precious moment, that relationship needs to be nurtured, through prayer, reading His Word, the Holy Bible, and then developing a life of obedience to His will. Knowing Him, resting in Him, softens your heart, your ear to Him, to His Spirit's gentle promptings, gentle convictions, and comforting assurance...that He is a loving Father, that we can believe Him for who He says He is and who He says we are in Him.
