Hello my lovelies! Welcome back to #KUWMJ blog.
This year is a living testimony of “God is in control”. This pandemic has been going strong for months and yet still we still have no way of figuring out what’s next. Honestly, I have up trying. This year I promised myself that I would be intentional in everything that I do, create and put out into the world. With that being said, I purposely wanted to kill two birds with one stone in this post by shedding light on what it really means/take to listen to God and to highlight my tee shirt which was made by someone who is also intentional on making sure he spreads the message to you to “listen to God”.
Listen To God?
To some it is gibberish to even say the words, more less believe them. To me, listening to God is more than thinking he said to do something and doing it. It means to be fully open to hearing and not at all times understanding what he’s telling you to do and just doing it without doubt. As I grow in years, I know now that the only way to hear God or know what he wants/expects of us is by reading the Bible, devotion, prayer and a relationship with him. If you’re not doing any of these, you won’t know what God wants of you.
If God is always listening to us, why is it so hard for us to do the same for him in return? (I’m speaking to myself as well). It sometimes feel like we have all the time in the world to do the right thing or get our lives together, but in actuality we have ZERO TIME. Lives are lost everyday my loves. Are you willing to leave this world without being right with God?
I’ve put together some ways that we can all practice listening to God:
- Keep a prayer journal- I had one of these and somehow neglected it. The benefits of it is to keep track of what you’ve prayed for and to see what God has already done for you.
- Read your bible- This is non-negotiable if you’re serious.
- Have a daily devotional
- Ask God questions and wait for an answer- Sometimes God answers our prayers through other people. He also shows himself through different situations in our lives. PAY ATTENTION.
These are steps to take to grow your relationship with God, which in return strengthens the bond to the point where you’ll be able to listen when He speaks to you. I hope this post was helpful.
