“Here is the quiet time you have needed to speak with me and pray. Do not waste it on frivolities.” ~Jesus
This is the first time in a long time, that the world population has come to somewhat of a standstill as we all self-quarantine to help reduce the spread of a virus that has affected all of us in different ways. Whether we are alone, with a loved one, with family or friends, there is one thing we all have - - a mass opportunity to sit and think about what decisions we have made in our lives, and the path we have chosen.
At this time, we have time. We have an opportunity that we may not have once we get back to the way our lives were, to reach out, get to know God, and find out what path our lives should be on. This may be the only chance we get to build that relationship with him.
We have so much in our day to day lives that usually blocks our mind from hearing him:
There’s always something that is filling our minds, distracting us, that how can we make room for God and hear what he has to say to us? Maybe that’s why we don’t hear him at all? And how can we be guided if we’re not listening? This is the time to be guided.
By now, some tasks on your daily list aren’t there anymore, and most likely won’t be for some time. Now is your moment to add God to your list. Seek God out. Ask him those questions you have always wanted to ask. Have that 1:1 time with God, and speak to him. Then, take a moment in silence to listen to his answers for you.
The word is truth, and it says “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart” Jeremiah 29:13.
You’ve heard others say “Be human, create relationships, show compassion during this time.” We are reminding you to also seek to have a relationship with God. Add God to your list of people to reach out to and have a conversation with.
No one on this earth holds your salvation and will direct you the way God will. If you haven’t heard his words before, now is the best time, in your silence, in your moments of “what should I do now?” to dedicate just a few minutes to seek him out - - and then listen.
His direction is one hundred times better than how we could direct our own lives. God doesn’t want us to suffer. He doesn’t want us to go through hardships. He only wants love and peace.
Who knows, when this is all over, your life may take an incredible direction that brings you so much peace, love, tranquility and prosperity. Why not try it? What do you have to lose?
Start that conversation today. God is waiting…
“Dear Lord, I am here. I am reaching
out to you. I have so many questions for you, but first I want to know if you are there? I want to know you. I want to have a relationship with you. I want to have the faith and understanding to believe that you are taking care of me, and that you love me. Please help me to hear your words. I have heard people say they can hear you, that you are listening and you speak to them. I want to have that relationship with you too. May the holy spirit come over my ears, and give me the ability to hear your guidance. I ask this in your name, amen.”
