From time to time we all may stray from God. It’s normal. He knows we will, but He continually calls us back to Him. It’s always an open invitation. We just need to respond by reaching back out to God. He is always there with us. That soft voice of a whisper you hear at times in your head, that is God leading you back to Him. All we need to do is take time to talk with God and become closer. It’s no great effort on our part – we just need to give in and open our hearts to His loving presence. He wants us to experience the depth of His love for us.
God never said that life would easy. He never said we wouldn’t experience pain, but He did say He would never foresake us. He may not provide immediate relief when we pray for Him to do so, but know that He is setting in motion the conditions we need. It just won’t happen on our timetable. God’s plan is the best plan. Remember, too, that God gifts everyone something different. He may have blessed one person with abundance and they seem to be living a life of ease. Yet He may have blessed another person with fragility, and through that they too will learn their lessons and be blessed in many ways through their struggles, and yet still live a life of abundance!
No matter what we are blessed with, know that we are God’s children and He wants the best for each of us. When we seek God and make the time to grow closer to Him, He comes closer to us. He will renew our hearts. He will make us strong. He will get us through the toughest of situations. He will give us lasting life.
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.” – Ezekiel 36:27
You see when we become closer to God, our spirit does renew; because His Spirit is in us. It is that soft voice we hear that moves us to follow His plan. We just need to be open to receiving His Word and knowing it is His Will that we are acting on. Like I posted the other day, brush off that devil on your shoulder and let the good guy win! With God we can do so much more! With God, we will live an abundant life!
