We are looking at how we can understand our journey and story with God by starting with His story and journey towards us. Our role is to simply respond to what He begins.
During this episode, we will be discussing:
+ Why EVERYTHING God is doing in your life is focussed on making you more like HIM…
+ Three keys to UNLOCK a greater understanding of God’s story with you...
+ How God is absolutely CONFIDENT in His own story and totally CONVINCED in His journey with you and towards you…
+ And an ACTIVATION using a special CRAFTED prayer I wrote for you…
+ The “word of God” is God’s story with us.
+ God journeys toward us through His story.
+ God’s story and journey is majestic
+ Genesis 1:26: Let’s make man in OUR image.
+ John 14:23: If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.
+ 2 Corinthians 3:18: But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image - from glory to glory, just as by the spirit of the Lord.
+ Deuteronomy 31:8: And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.
+ Jeremiah 29:11: I KNOW the plans I have for you! Plans for good, not for evil. For a good future, full of hope, with an excellent outcome.
Here is the the Crafted Prayer I used earlier in this talk:
“Father, I KNOW that You’ve already been to today. I know that Jesus is the author and finisher of my faith. Holy Spirit, I rejoice that You’re my resident genius in teaching and helping me, so I’m pushing away any sense of stress, or disillusionment with myself or with others… because you’ve already been here to this part of my story. I’m going to be still - and look for You. I’m going to expect to see Your provision for me. I’m going to love what I’m learning. I’m going to agree with you that there’s nothing wrong - but something is missing of my experience of You and You already have every intention of providing it!
So I thank You Holy Spirit that You will help me see it and learn to live in a new level of relationship with You because of this experience.
In Jesus’ name, Amen!"
Write this prayer out on a card or small piece of paper and put it in several places where you’ll remember to pray it. Feel free to personalize it or adapt it; however it works best for you.
And then begin to pray it every day. You don’t have to wait for a difficult day to pray it. You can begin to position yourself to recognize God’s story and journey with you by tuning your heart to see Him in it.
This prayer will realign your thinking so that you’re expecting God to be present in your story and you’re anticipating that He’s journeying towards you and you’re looking for where He is.
