Simply Responding To God

simply responding to god

Prayer is the spontaneous response of the believing heart to God. Those truly transformed by Jesus Christ find themselves lost in wonder and joy of communion with Him. Prayer is as natural for the Christian as breathing. (John MacArthur)

Our prayers can be as simple as taking a breath of fresh air. They do not have to be complicated, but they should come from our heart, where we are learning to trust God and to commune with Him.

When our prayer life flows from our heart, we begin to encounter God on a more meaningful level. We can use the ability that He has placed within us to express ourselves to Him, and for Him to respond to us. When He speaks to us, we can be restored in His hope, be quieted by His love, and be soothed by His comfort.

We can enter into His rest, where we can allow Him to heal our wounds. We can enjoy His light shining on us, and marvel at His grace. We can relax in His presence so that He can remove our fears. His gentle touch always desires to calm us within our core, and healing can happen at any time from the inside out, as we meet with Him.

His presence sustains us in our weakness, and He continues to be our source of strength. He is faithful to endure with us to the end, no matter the consequence because we are His first love.

So may we take time to rest in His presence today, and to enjoy His beauty. He is our breath, and He longs to refresh us wherever we find ourselves.

So, let’s breathe in His goodness, and delight in His presence, for we are His, and He is ours, and eternity with Him awaits us.

Prayer:

God,

Thank you that you desire to know me and to spend time with me, just as I am. Help me to embrace your love for me, and teach me your ways, so that I can fully know your presence. Speak to me, as you find me, and let me know your thoughts, just as I desire to share my thoughts with you. Thank you. Amen.
