I already knew this, why has it taken me so long to really comprehend the idea that if I want to hear from God I have to stay close to Him. Oh be quiet, I can hear you say right now, “no dah.” Well, have you thought about it? I mean really thought about it?
There are two people who I know who really do seem to hear from God on a fairly regular basis. Both of these ladies have a very close relationship with the Lord. Close relationship does not mean, saying your usual prayer and reading your usual 2 chapters of the Bible. It means thinking about Jesus, studying, spending time with Him and praying about everything. Even more than that it means communicating with Him as your best friend. Then and only then will we hear directly from Him.
I lost my cell phone on my way home from the Rocky Mountain Retreat, I asked the Lord right then and there to help me find it. I haven’t heard from Him so I think it’s lost forever. (The first phone I have ever paid extra for) I wonder if I knew Him better would He have told me where I left the phone. IDK
My dream is not about finding phones, or even getting rich, it’s about hearing from God. Making Him my best friend. I want that, I want Him to trust me to witness for Him. I want Him to ask me to do odd things, to ask me to stretch my brain, to . . .to. . .well, to do what ever it is that He wants me to do.
Right now I am headed to Sprint to buy a new phone.
