I was speaking to a friend this week about communing with God, and how, when we give our lives to Christ, we then spend our lives fighting between the flesh and the Spirit (Romans 8)
Yet, how many of us realise that our ability to hear from God is not what we do, but about who we are?
The fight between the flesh is simply our soul (our mind, our will, and our emotions) playing catch-up to our Spirit. Our Spirit is connected with God the second we say that prayer to Jesus – we are redeemed, restored, and reunited with our Dad in Heaven.
But, most of us still believe in the ability of Satan to deceive us, more than, for God to speak to us.
This week, my friend was reminded that they can hear from God, and it’s merely about aligning our lives to become attuned to the voice of God.
Our lives are about seeking God. Hungering for Him. Thirsting for His presence. Desiring the One who saved us.
Abiding in Him, means He abides in us.
Pray, fast, read our Bibles, TALK to Him…
We need to realise that there is no shame or condemnation in Jesus Christ. The old has gone, and therefore, what are you seeking?
Do we want more of God, or is it more about Him helping us because we feel attacked?
Do we want to see God face to face, or do we want Him to heal our bodies?
Do we want to receive God’s love, or do we want to tap into His unlimited resources in Heaven, for financial freedom?
When we start to align our lives with Kingdom living, rather than focusing on our earthly needs, there is a shift.
God knows what we need, and that’s ultimately for us to have a desire to become intimate with Him, not what He can give you
Let’s search for the Father, but because we want to, not because we have to.
Let’s realise Who’s we are because then our soul will thirst for the right things
