Tell Him how you really feel. Are you open with God? Are you willing to listen when He responds?

How do you see God’s provision in your current situation?
by Alex | Nov 5, 2013 | Prayer and talking with GodPrayer is not just a one way street. It’s a two way conversation between you and God. You speak to God, and God speaks to you through the Bible, through conversations with others, and through experiences. This is one reason why community with other believers is so important: Further understanding of God’s will, and His plan. So, how do you have a conversation with God? Speak scripture to yourself! Jesus left us with an awesome template for how we are supposed to communicate with Him! () Sure, we can pray the Lord’s prayer word for word – by itself it’s a great reminder of His love for us, and His provision, and it’s a wonderful communication tool. It’s also an effective outline for communicating with the Lord. If you’ve never tried this before, I’d challenge you to do so sometime soon. Use the Lord’s prayer as an outline for discussing the events of your life and current situation with your Father. “Our Father, in heaven, Hallowed be your name” – Lift Him up! Set yourself beneath Him! Father, you are greater than everything else, you are the Lord of all. You are amazing; all I have is from you, all I have is yours! Father God, Your will is greater than mine – Your will set my paths straight! I know that my plans are but nothing to what you have in store. Lead me Father! Today, I witnessed your greatness and provision in such an amazing way! Thank you so much for the sacrifice that you, that your son, took in my place – you have forgiven me...

When God answers your prayers, do you praise Him? Do you just carry on with life, as if He’s just given you what you deserve, or do you go to Him saying, “Praise you, Lord, for your great work and provision?”

You know how, when you haven’t talked to someone in a long time, it can get more and more difficult to pick up the phone and call them? You know that the list of things that you will need to catch up on is just so long that even the idea of starting the conversation is exhausting. Relationships are like that – they take work.
