21 Jul Heart to Heart with God: A Journey Towards Acceptance Day 48
365 Days of Reflection Towards God’s Love and Acceptance
~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 48-West Palm Beach, Florida:
There are many times when we have no words to express our desires to God. Likewise, we do not know what to say or how to say it when communicating a want or need with our Father. We are at a complete loss and do not even know where to begin. In these moments with Jesus in our presence, maybe saying nothing is actually saying a lot. What if we listened to what God had to say and then we prayed?
So if we listen first and spoke second, would that not bring about many questions that we would want to ask God? Would we not hunger and thirst for His knowledge even more? The great thing about God is that He is always around speaking to us in ways that we may not understand today or events that occur for a reason in the future that we completely misinterpret. Our Heavenly Father is here by our side to answer those life questions that may have never been addressed by our earthly father and to further clarify inquiries that need more explanation for our journey ahead.
After we listen to what God is saying and we still are at a loss for words it is time to start with the basics of the teachings of Jesus. In these lessons from the Bible the Lord teaches us how to pray and in what context prayer should be originated from. This begins with the Lord’s Prayer found in Luke, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” Jesus gave us the tools through his teaching so that we know how to act like a child through our devote prayers, listen to God, and also talk to God in order to receive riches that are not of this world.
