What would God want to say to you?
I’ve been thinking so many times in life we overcomplicate the simple. This can be particularly true when it comes to faith in God. It does seem to me that life can and does get very complicated at time, and when this happened we all need to return to the heart of who we are and what is important to us. I’ve been thinking recently if I could sit down with God and have a one to one with him instead of me doing all the talking and asking all the questions that I would want to ask ! What would happen if I tool time to listen? What would be the top ten things that he would want to say to me, and would want to say to anyone who is prepared to stop and listen come to think of it. Sometimes we wrestle with things for a lifetime that could have been settled in a moment had we stopped to really listen and truly understand. Whether you are a follow of Jesus, a fence walker, or a non-believer I believe if we took a moment to stop and to listen what we might hear could change and shape your life for eternity.
You are my beloved and I really do love you (Eph. 5:1)
No matter what you’ve heard or what you’ve come to believe, there’s nothing that can separate you from my Love. (Rom. 8:38-39)
I understand your pain and heartbreak. And my heart breaks with you. (Is. 53:3)
I will not force you to do or be anything. I want a relationship with you more than I want to rule over you. (Jeremiah 31:3)
I will forgive your sin and I will forget it. That’s right—completely erase it from my mind. No replays, no record. Gone. (Ps. 103:12)
Please forgive some of my followers. People—even Christian people—will fail you. You live in a fallen land, where no one is perfect and all need My grace. Put your faith and trust in Me alone. (Psalm 146:3)
The addictions. The pride. The selfishness. The hate. The lust. The jealousy. The critical spirit. The greed. I can heal it, all of it. You can start fresh, today. (Rom. 8:1-4)
It’s never too late to turn your life around. I came to give second chances. (Luke 23:42-43)
I love you. Let’s talk. (Jer. 29:13)
These are my top ten maybe you’d have some other things that you’d thing God would want to say to us that’s OK, let me know
