Experiencing God – Week 2 – Day 4

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.

One thought on “Experiencing God – Week 2 – Day 4

  1. Just hit me this morning while running – in God, there is no mediocrity…with God, I am ALL He wants me to be – without Him I am nothing…no in-between.

    Scripture memorization is amazing. I am a week behind in the Exp. God study, so I am working on John 15:5…I am the vine, you are the branches; if you remain in me and I in you, you will BEAR MUCH FRUIT; apart from me you can do NOTHING.
