We as Believers of Jesus Christ probably speak to Him or Pray to Him on a regular basis. I know that I do. But, I have been asked the question...'How often do I meditate and truly Focus on what I share with God? Do I fall on my knees and say a quick Prayer thanking Him for keeping my family and I safe? Or, do I ask for something selfish like a pay raise or less traffic while traveling to work?
I chat with Jesus everyday but, I often times do not give much thought behind what I say to Him. When we Pray and when we read God's wors--The Bible--to ourselves and others, we need to let His words penetrate our heart and our Spirit. If we allow concentration to be the object of talking to God and reading His word, we will be more inline to hear what He is asking of us and be more equipped and willing to do it. We think of Him throughout the day and say a quick something and that is it. We don't learn God's will for our lives this way.
Starting today, I will not just Pray/Talk with my Savior Jesus but, I will fixate, concentrate, meditate, permeate His words in my Heart, my Mind, my Spirit and really start, for the first time, hear what God is telling me. NO, not hear but LISTEN to what God is saying to me through His words. I will not know or understand my Purpose if I do all of the talking and not listen.
I ask your Prayers to help me listen more and talk less when I reach our to Jesus. And, once I get HIS words in my SOUL...I will be an obedient Child of God.
