COMMUNING WITH GOD:
It’s not always easy to follow where God is leading …
In fact, it is not uncommon for the desires of our flesh to present obstacles that make it difficult to do hear and follow God’s instructions. Many times we are aware of these worldly desires (e.g., selfishness, judgement, greed, envy, etc.), but sometimes they are hidden so deep in hearts that don’t even detect their presence. Left unchecked, these secret, hidden desires can influence our actions in ways that cause us to be burdened by the past and miss opportunities that God is sending for our good.
Prayer provides a chance for us to get close to God, reflect upon what’s happening in our lives and ask for God’s help in revealing whatever is hidden in our heart so we might be healed and came move forward in becoming all that God has intended for us to be. Joel and Victoria Osteen have written a beautiful prayers to help us all get into alignment with God.
Dear Father, I humbly come before You today and ask that You search the deep places of my heart. Show me if there is any area where I need to line up my heart and actions. Help me to be authentic in You today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
