It is an amazing feeling to be in the will of God! To be doing what the God of the universe wants me to be doing!
I've been learning to be focussed on God. I've been learning how to "pray without ceasing (I Thes. 5:17)" and how to fulfill God's calling in my life.
Jeremiah 29:13 - And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart.
I want to be closer to God... I want to know His will for my life, but I know that i have not been searching for Him with all my heart. So what do i need to do in order to grow closer to God? what is the "seek"ing? Look back one verse, Jeremiah 29:12a says, "Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me..."
So all i have to do is call upon God... also known as PRAYER. i need to pray! Is that all? The rest of the verse says "go and pray unto me"... um... again with the PRAYER! It must be that easy!
So why pray so much anyways?
Cuz God finishes that verse by saying:
Jer. 29:12b - ...and I will hearken unto you.
The word "hearken" means (direct from the original hebrew) "to hear intelligently, hear carefully, consider, hear diligently, listen."
Sure sounds like God is paying attention to prayers! I want my prayers to be worth listening to.
