Day 16 of 31!
As a Pastor I spend a lot of time reading about God, studying the Bible, and searching the heart of God for my life. As a christian we should do this. We should spend time with God.
Some people understand this, but it can be a hard thing to actually put into practice because God isn’t physical or doesn’t feel tangible in some people’s lives.
Dr. Bill Purvis, in his book, The Emotion Driven Life, states that God didn’t create you to be imprisoned by your emotions. (Click the link and you can pick that book up for $3 right now. That is a great deal) Sometimes the way we feel makes us question reality. Just because you don’t feel God, doesn’t mean He is not there.
I recently came across a quote that was challenging to me. I’m not sure where it came from but it states, “Most of us don’t hear from God because we don’t go to God, we go to google.”
Think about when this has been true for your life. You spend all your time asking friends or searching the internet for a quick fix. You are trying to fix your problems or situation but often times besides a quick “please help God,” we do not spend time searching the heart of God and asking Him to be a part of our situation.
If you are having trouble hearing God in an area of your life, the first thing you should check is to see if you are actually trying to hear from God. Are you spending time with God or are you just hoping he speaks into your busyness and through your search of asking others and the internet. Rather than do that, why don’t you spend sometime today and search for God in your life.
Take some time today and spend it with God.
