When was the last time you really prayed? I don’t mean a flippant grace before dinner or quick, "What’s up Jesus” before walking out the door in the morning, but real prayer. When was the last time you pushed everything and everyone else to the side to hear what God is longing to tell you? The words to one of my favorite songs, What A Friend We Have In Jesus, says, “Oh what peace we often forfeit. Oh what needless pains we bear. All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.”
Are you giving up your peace? Why? Let God have control. After giving your life to Christ the relationship needs to be maintained. What happens when we don’t talk to someone for a long time? We don’t know them anymore. Do you know the Lord? God is longing for you to give all of your concerns to Him and listen to His counsel. He didn’t make you to go through life on your own. He wants to walk with you every step of the way. One of the marks of a bad friend is that they only call or come around when they want something. Are you a good friend to Jesus? Stay Connected.
