How do I walk with God!
Practically, what would that look like day to day? Those are just a couple of simple questions that Christians face today as they seek Him. Many of us are aware of Matthew 7:7-8, “Keep on asking and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking and you will find. Keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks finds and everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” However; asking, seeking, and knocking are somewhat difficult to actually do consistently with all that we have in our lives. It seems to have slight paralyzing effect to some as we often do not receive answers to pray on our time or even in the way we want. The sit and wait approach is not the answer.
As Christ followers, we can expect that God will be moving in our lives in some way if we are willing. Being sensitive to the Spirit is an attribute that develops as we mature and you can take an active part in that. We have to be sure that the expectation of God’s movement is based from where He sits…not us. I’m sure it puts a smile on God’s face by the mere fact that we are striving to be with Him through asking, seeking, and knocking. But, it is my contention that it is more of an active on-going event than just speaking to Him. What is it that you can do to serve while you are asking? Who can you reach out to while you are seeking? What can be done in your circle of influence while you are knocking?
I challenge you all to do something for the Kingdom in your everyday life. Just tell God, “I am not exactly sure what you need me to do, but I will start something today.” I will tell you that you will be blessed and as you are reaching out and serving, He will begin to reveal more and more to you. Just start moving!
Make God smile today!
