Listening for God

So many times our days can get clouded with worldly feelings. I mean you can’t turn on the news without something terrible going on. There is negativity, pride, sarcasm and disrespectfulness all around us. The list goes on and on.

I declare the time is now to put God first in our days and in our lives.  As we draw nearer to Him we set Him free to operate in our lives. God wants to help, guide, strengthen and protect us. In order to do that we need to stay in the perfect center of His will for our lives.

What is the center of His will? I believe we should get up every day and honor Him by praying. Just talking to Him. Maybe we could also read His word for direction.

It seems to me that we make time for the important things. We work, clothe ourselves, eat, maintain friendships…etc. Shouldn’t our relationship with God have precedence over everything else? It is then that our lives will fall into place. it is then that we will be hearing and doing what God’s will is for our lives.

Think about this, what if we didn’t work, eat, clothe ourselves, or maintain friendships…etc? How would our lives be? Things might start falling apart, right? Like losing our jobs, health, mind, friends…. You get the picture.

Let’s get back to the word, back to the heart of God. He desires and requires first place in our lives.

Matthew 6:31-34 KJV Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

The other things, well the Bible says, the Father knows we have need of such things. So what we do is put Him first. First in the morning when we rise, first on our thought process, first in our decision making and first in our relationships. He deserves to be first in all things.

Heavenly Father,

You see and know all. You know the intent and desires of our hearts. We pray that You would be first in our lives. Take Your rightful spot, Lord. We want to be aligned with Your will for our lives. How can we do that if we don’t know what it is. Draw us closer to You through Your word and Your sweet Holy Spirit. Breathe in and through us. We want to live our best lives ever by being in the perfect center of Your will. Oh God, we look in anticipation of the day when You call us home. We so want Your words to be , “Well done thou good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of the Lord ” (Matthew 25:23). You are good! We praise You and thank You for drawing us closer. We lift up Your Holy name, King Jesus. May Your kingdom come and Your will be done. Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
