Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 6 Day 2

One of the ways God speaks is through circumstances.  When circumstances are confusing:

1.  Settle in your mind that God has forever demonstrated His unfailing love for you on the cross.  That love will never change.

2.  Do not try to understand what God is like from the middle of your circumstances.

3.  Go to God and ask Him to help you see His perspective on your situation.

4.  Wait on the Holy Spirit.  He may take God's Word and help you understand your circumstances.

5.  Adjust your life to God and to what you see Him doing in Your circumstances.

6.  Do all He tells you to do.

7.  Experience God working in and through you to accomplish His purposes.

Bro. Paul

Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 6 Day 1

"When you pray in a particular direction, immediately anticipate God's activity in answer to your prayer.  Throughout Scripture when God's people prayed, He responded. 

Here's what happens if you pray and then forget about what you prayed about.  Things start to happen during the day that are unusual.  Seeing them as distractions, you try to ignore them and fail to connect them with what you prayed about earlier. 

When I pray, I immediately begin to watch for what happens next.  I Prepare to make adjustments to what happens in my life.  When I pray, the idea that God is not going to answer never crosses my mind.  Expect God to answer your prayers, but stick around for the answer.  His timing is always right and best."

Friday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 5 Day 5

Prayer is a two way fellowship and communication with God.  You speak to God, and He speaks to you.  Prayer is not a one-way conversation in which you merely list everything you want God to do.  Your personal prayer life may primarily be one-way communication - you talking to God - but prayer is more than that.  Prayer includes listening.  In fact, what God says in prayer is far more important than what you say.  God already knows what you are going to say.  You, however, do not know what God is thinking.

Prayer is a relationship, not just a religious activity.  Its purpose is to adjust you to God, not align God with your thinking.  God doesn't need your prayers, but He wants you to pray because of what God wants to do in and through your life as you pray.  God speaks to His people by the Holy Spirit through prayer. 

When the Holy Spirit reveals a spiritual truth to you in prayer, He is present and actively working in your life.  Genuine prayer does not lead to an encounter with God.  It is an encounter with God.

Bro. Paul

Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 5 Day 4

When the Holy Spirit reveals a spiritual truth from God's Word, He is personally applying it to your life.  That is an encounter with God.  This is the sequence:

1.  You read God's Word - the Bible

2.  The Spirit of Truth takes God's Word and reveals truth.

3.  You adjust your life to God's truth.

4.  You obey God.

5.  God works in and through you to accomplish His purposes.

Bro. Paul
