DOES GOD STILL SPEAK TO US?

Oh yes, God speaks to us everyday. Most of us cannot hear Him because we are not listening. We speak to Him in prayers every day but we are always quick to get up after prayers, we do not take a moment to listen to Him after our prayers.

Let us put our imagination to work at this scenario:

I know my dad is awake and he is in his room, i knocked on the door of his room and i went this way;

"Good morning dad, i know you are awake, thank you for the cake you bought for me yesterday, i really enjoyed it.

Please forgive me for not completing the task you gave me yesterday.

I have had so much cakes in the past few weeks, when you go out today, i want you to buy me a box of pizza.

I believe you have heard me and i know you will do it because i have faith in you.

Bye Dad"

After saying all those, i turned my back and i walked away.

The scenario painted up there is exactly how some of our prayers sound like. We are thankful for what He has done before, we pray for forgiveness of our sins, we carefully and humbly make our request but we speedily get up from our prayers and walk away without a reply from God.

Our God is so gracious and wonderful, He answers our prayers speedily without hesitations. He loves us, we are the apple of His eyes, He will provide all our needs according to His riches in glory because we mean so much to him, but as much as He does this for us, He is willing to speak to us.

God is trying to have a personal relationship with us, He speaks to us everytime, we cannot hear Him because we do not listen.

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
Revelation 3:20 NKJV

Our lives will be a lot easier if we listen to God every day.

The next time you pray, ask God to speak to you, open the doors of you heart to Him, take a moment to listen to Him after your prayers, He will speak to you.

God Bless You.

PRAYER FOR THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER 2017

Psalms 29:1‭-‬2 NKJV

Give unto the Lord , O you mighty ones, Give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

And so with a heart full of gratitude, we thank You Father for how far You have led us in the year 2017. We thank God for His protections, we give glory to God for providing our need and we glorify the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ for the atoning blood He shed at calvary for the cleansing of our sins.

As we step into the beautiful month of September, may the Lord make all crooked ways straight for us.
May He guide us through each day of the month of September and provide all our needs.
We pray that the Holy Spirit will abide with us throughout this month.

We desire to be more righteous this month, dear Lord let Your Holiness cover our unrighteousness and make us perfect before You.

Thank you Father because you have answered our prayers.

In Jesus Name we pray.
Amen.
