Hearing From God (Not Just My Weight Loss Counselor)

(This post is not about weight loss or counseling, but due to a request from a dear blog friend. She writes about life from the other side of the world and keeps her identity hidden. But you can check out her blog:               https://susieshy45.wordpress.com

Lord, my friend asks, “How do you hear from God?” What do I tell her?

Tell  her to listen for My quiet voice of love spoken deep within her heart. Listen for My words calling her name. Tell her to answer, “Lord, here I am,” and I will speak to her heart. I am calling her now. Tell her I never yell or scream. Tell her to listen for the still quiet voice. Tell her that I love her more than she’ll ever know.

FEED ON THE MANNA!

Your Word

—– You also gave Your good Spirit to instruct them. And did not withhold Your manna from their mouths. . . . . . . . .                                  Nehemiah 9:20 NKJV

Lord, I want Your Holy Spirit to instruct me and I also want to “feed” on Your heavenly manna!

( Then eat of My Word, My child. If you eat of My Word then you will be “full” of My heavenly manna!)

——How sweet are Your Words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!           Psalm 119:103 NKJV

Oh Lord, thank you! I didn’t know that Your Word was our “manna” today. The Israelites in the desert had Your manna, which was a sweet wafer like a bread. But today we have Your Word, which we should consider “sweet” but it seems that today no one wants to read Your Word. We are all on our computers or our cell phones. I am guilty myself of choosing to play on my toy of technology. Lord, I ask for forgiveness each time that I chose my toy over Your Word.

—–  Direct my steps by Your Word. And let no iniquity have dominion over me.          Psalm 119:133 NKJV

——Incline my heart to Your testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn my eyes away from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way. Establish Your Word to Your servant, who is  devoted to fearing You.   Psalm 119: 36-38 NKJV

Lord, fill me with the desire to eat from Your Word and not eat from the abundance of  earthly pleasures in the kitchen, in the restaurants, or in the market. But rather Lord, let me be full of a desire for You and Your Word.

—-I have not departed from the commandments of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food. Job 23:12 NKJV

(My child, if you will feed from My Word, My heavenly manna, your physical body will decrease and your spiritual body, your soul will increase. I will fill you with Myself and you will be full forevermore.)

Oh yes Lord, I desire to be “full” of You, of Your Holy Spirit, and of Your Word! Fill me with Yourself! I am Yours, do with me as You wish!

(Come here, My child. Sit with Me! Behold I come unto you with My Presence. Allow Me to satiate your soul!)

—- For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul. Jeremiah 31:25 NKJV
