As we mature into adulthood and grow older, that doesn’t always equate to growing wiser. The wisest people I know are in touch with not only themselves, but more importantly their creator. They love the Lord and seek Him diligently. They speak as though they know the Lord. Their words are not hasty, or rough. They are a conduit of the Lords work; He flows effortlessly through them into others.
There comes a point in most of our lives where we look into ourselves for a deeper understanding of self. However, to understand the creation, we must first know and understand the creator. What I have learned in my seeking journey, is that there is no knowing myself, without knowing the Lord. There is no having a purpose, without at least seeking to find out the reason behind the creation. God speaks to us every second of the day. He is speaking through our thoughts, through the people around us. He is speaking. However, are you listening?. It doesn’t matter how much God speak’s, until we are ready to receive His guidance, all His speaking will go unnoticed.
If you want to know the person God created you to be, ask God to show you. And when He does, pay attention. If you are finding it hard to listen to the Lord, or even speak to the Lord, grab a journal. Slow your thoughts down by writing them out to the Lord. Allowing yourself to write out your prayers/thoughts to the Lord, will put you in a quiet space to receive whatever He has to say back to you.
Try it. And tell me if it works for you.
Have a blessed day.
