My wife shared a nice story with me about her Valentine’s Day commute to work. She told me right as she parked, she said, “Happy Valentine’s Day God, I love you.”
She heard a loud booming voice say, “I love you too.”
She told me she had to hold back tears as she walked into work.
I love that story and it is one I will always remember.
Many Christian’s want God to talk to them but can’t hear Him. The best advice I can give is the more you listen, the more God will talk, the more you talk to God the more opportunity He has to talk to you.
Go to a quiet place and pray, remember Jesus did this. Follow His example to get closer to Him.
The key is to calm your brain and listen.
Remember how much you don’t like it when someone won’t let you get in a word in? Let God get a word in and work through you.
Sometimes it’s better to pray in silence, or ask God to lead you in prayer.
The most important part is to listen.
To conclude this week’s blog, as I mentioned Valentine’s Day was last week so let’s talk about God’s love.
Love is mentioned 310 times, 131 times in the Old Testament and 179 times in the New Testament. That’s outstanding.
The new most famous verses about love in the Bible are famous for a reason, they fit God’s word and mission perfectly.
John 3:16, “16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
1 Corinthians 13:13, “13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
Truly the Word of God is true. Love is the most important aspect in all of our lives.
Have a blessed week,
