Prayer

Prayer can turn your life around,  but it doesn’t always happen the moment you utter your first words. It may take a time of continued prayer before you actually see the results. This is normal,  so don’t give up. God will never let you down.

Lord, I Thirst for You

God has so much to speak into your life. But if you don’t draw apart from the busyness of your day and spend time alone with him in quietness and solitude, you will not hear it. Jesus Himself spent much time alone with God. If anyone could get away with not doing it, surely it would have been Him. How much more important must it be for us?

Lord you have said “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink” (John 7:37). I thirst for more of You because I am in a dry place without You. I come to You this day and drink of Your Spirit.

Amen

Be Blessed

Have a Relationship with God

Your deepest needs and longing will only be met in an intimate relationship with God. No person will ever read as deeply into you as God will. No one can ever know you as well or love you as God will.

God wants us to want Him. And when we realize that it’s Him that we want, we become free. We are free to identify the longings, loneliness, and emptiness inside of us as our signal that we need to draw near to God with open arms and ask Him to fill us with more of Himself…

Amen

Be Blessed

Call on God

Lord, I want to know You in every way You can be known.  Teach me what I need to learn in order to know You better.  I want to know the truth about who You are,  because I know that You are near to all who call upon You in truth.

Psalm 145:18
The Lord is close to all who call on him,
 yes, to all who call on him in truth.

Amen

Be Blessed

God’s way, God’s timing

If you have received the Lord, the answer to what you need is within you. That’s because the Holy Spirit of God is within you, and He will lead you in all things and teach you everything you need to know. He will transform you and your circumstances beyond your wildest dreams. But YOU will have to give up trying to do it on your own and let God do it His way and in His time.

Amen

Be Blessed

Immanuel “God is with us”

He is a God who can be found. A God who can be known. A God who wants to be close to us. That’s why He is called Immanuel,  which means “God is with us”.

Lord,  I draw close to You today,  grateful that You will draw close to me as You have promised in Your Word. I long to dwell in Your presence,  and my desire is for a deeper and more intimate relationship with You.

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
James 4:8
