God if You’ll Speak, I’ll Listen

Imagine how different our days would go if we started each day or each prayer by saying “God if you’ll speak to me, I’ll listen”.

I am so good about turning to God in the hard times, but when everything in life is going smoothly I think that I am can handle life and that my plans will be good enough. No matter what season we are in it is easy to think of praying as a last resort. We try everything and finally when our plans aren’t working we turn to God. Imagine if we would turn to God and pray first.

Here are a couple of my favorite verses about turning to God.

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble. (Psalm 46.1)

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:16)

My goal for the next week is to focus on prayer first. To ask God what his plan is for me for me- and then listen!
