Discover Your Unique Connection to God
- Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Deal with sin that’s blocking the connection God wants you to enjoy with Him. Ask God to show you specific sins in your life that are preventing you from growing closer to Him. Then confess each one and repent of it. Rely on God’s power to help you uproot sin from your life and pursue healing one day at a time.
Plan how to incorporate your frequency into your daily life. Be intentional about connecting with God on your frequency regularly, rather than randomly encountering Him. Use your mind to connect with God on your frequency by filling your mind with thoughts that inspire you. Devote your time first to God before anyone or anything else. Build your relationships with other people around your faith in God, and grow closer to God together. Serve other people regularly in ways that God leads you – ways that you can help meet people’s needs by doing activities that you enjoy and are good at doing. Every day, approach God with humility, surrendering your own agenda so you can discover and fulfill God’s great purposes for you.
