Only a Great Pyrenees, Snowball, would enjoy the pillowy softness of the snow to take a nap.
Without a vision, the people perish. Proverbs 29:18
As a brand new Christian, I clung to these words of encouragement, and set upon making plans for my life. I set goals for that month, the year, and five years. Then I set about putting these plans into action by making steps, no matter how small to achieve these goals. Within a few months, I was progressing without a hitch, but more importantly, I noticed that my life was improving. I was believing in what I thought would be impossible.
Today, writing my goals in my journal everyday is an integral part of my life. It is essential for all to know their vision, because without it, we will surely perish.
Happy goal writing in 2019!
“Hello, this is Jill,” I introduce myself the first time I call a new acquaintance. The second and third time that I call, I do the same thing. By the fourth and fifth time, I no longer have to introduce myself.
It is because they know my voice, my unique inflections, cadence, and topics that I like to speak on. This is what identifies me.
This is exactly what you need to do when learning to hear from the LORD. Listen for His wording and topics.
I had been saved for a whole five months, and in a severe moment of desperation, I got on my knees and begged God to speak to me. This thought popped into my mind, and barely knowing the Bible, felt assured that this had to be from the LORD, “Psalm 91!”
As soon as I grabbed my Bible and began to read the verses in Psalm 91, it spoke deeply to my soul, and in this Psalm I found the answers that I was looking for. For many months and years afterward, He always spoke to me through scripture. It was His way of identifying Himself to me. I had no doubt that He was speaking to me.
Today, He does not use scripture verses to speak to me, but when He does it comes from deep within.
Last year, I was battling cancer hard! Vacuuming one day I heard Him say, “Don’t worry I’m healing you.”
He did, in a miraculous way. A no-denying-this-is-a-miracle way. My doctors were baffled, because cancer doesn’t just disappear. WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
The easy-breezy step- SEEK GOD WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART. Trust me, He has all that you need and are looking for!
