I love this quote:
“If there was a formula to hearing from God you would not have to seek God with all your heart.”
It’s so easy to try to bypass the relationship. “Just give me what I need to know so I can get on with my life.” Probably the thing that has stood out to me the most so far is the focus on being God centered as opposed to self-centered. My life is really here for Him, to please Him and to see His will done. This is such different thinking because so much of our thoughts are about ourselves. How do I pay my bills? Where do I work, go to school, live?
God’s will, His plan, my relationship to Him should be the focus of my life. His plan is best and right. He loves me and I can trust Him. My plans are rarely right (though on occasion I happen to agree with Him). Set my heart on Him and building that relationship and I will be just great.
