Vital signs- Friday, September 23rd, 2022
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
Jeremiah 33:3 KJV
When you first get married, you think the two of you know how to talk with each other. It’s only after being together for a long time that you come to understand what’s being said when no one else hears a word. You come to a communication level where your spouse can talk to you without saying a word. They give you “that” look, and you go, “I’m in trouble.”
When you begin to talk with God in prayer, you develop a relationship and a pattern of communication with Him in much the same way you develop communication skills with people whom you’re close with. You begin to know that it’s God who’s speaking to you, and you become familiar with who He is, what He’s saying, and how He communicates. You get to know Him intimately through His Word, through worship, and through prayer. You discover that God will tell you things that no one else will pick up on, not because He doesn’t want them to know, but because they don’t know Him in the way you do.
Be encouraged today that your relationship with God must be developed. Make it your daily priority to deepen your relationship with Him.
Heavenly Father, teach me to trust in Your Word, to hear Your voice, to do what You say, and deepen my relationship with You. I call upon You and ask You to show me great and mighty things that I do not know in Jesus’ name. Amen!
