How do you know what to pray for? If you don’t know the promises that God has made His children, how can you know what to ask Our Father? How can you respond to someone when they ask about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ if you Don’t know Him?
One of the best ways to get to know our Lord Jesus Christ is to study the Word of God. Read your Bible. READ THE WORD ALOUD so that you can HEAR what you are saying. Romans 10:17
From Genesis to Revelations you will see the very nature of our Savior and Our Father. You will see the depth of His Love for you. You will look into the very heart of His desire for our lives.
You will begin to see the path that the Lord has designed for you to follow. He will guide you through each step of your day, if you will just listen with your heart.
But to do that you must also feed your spirit with the Word of God daily. Stop and think about that.
Compare your body with your spirit. Feed your body the way that you feed your spirit. Could you survive? Probably not. You normally eat three meals a day and several snacks in between. Some of us tend to be over weight. However, Spiritually we are very weak.
We give our lives to the Lord and then we only visit with Him when we need something or when things get so bad that we don’t know what else to do. We spend time with Him only on Christmas or Easter. Sometimes we spend every Sunday with Him just to show the people around us that we are good Christians.
Being a Christian is not a religion, it is a way of life. When you commit yourself to a way of life, that is a very serious commitment. It is a complete change in lifestyle. Committing yourself to following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ on a daily basis. This kind of commitment does not take place overnight. It is a constant day to day walk, reading the Word and applying it to your life. It is not easy to put aside all of your life that you have lived so far, to follow Jesus. But each day that you Walk with Jesus Christ brings you closer and closer to Him in a more personal way.
It is written: "Draw close to God and He will draw close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinner; and purify your hearts, you double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up." James 4:8-10
Are you ready to walk the walk? The only thing that is stopping you is yourself.
