So, lately I’ve been kind of whiny, because I’ve been feeling as if God hasn’t been giving me anything! I mean, I’ve wanted to write blogs, but I’d have nothing! I’ve wanted to minister to people, but it was ineffective. The words coming out of my mouth, or my words typed out on a page, don’t mean much to anyone, unless those words are given by the Holy Spirit! And in order for a person to hear from God, I would think a person would need to commune with Him! That’s when it hit me! It’s not God! It’s me!
I had become so spiritually lazy that I’d put God on the back burner. I hadn’t stopped praying or reading the bible necessarily, but it was done more out of duty than desire. You know what I mean? I was just doing enough to be able to say I’d done it. Period. That doesn’t mean much to our Heavenly Father! He wants us to want a close, personal relationship with Him!
Want to do big things? Want things to happen in your life? Then PRAY! And READ/STUDY God’s Word! Then listen and obey! And I’m preaching’ to myself!
Then if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves, if they will pray and seek Me and stop their evil ways, I will hear them from heaven. I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
