God and His Love cannot come through man’s ideas of religion, but by God Himself. Just as we enjoy and cherish spending time with our loved ones, God enjoys spending time with us. Sometimes we read The Bible and worship Him, while at other times, all He wants us to do is sit at His feet and allow Him to talk to us, heal us, and to pour Himself out on us. Learn how to truly know God and enjoy Him. Out Of Religion Into A Personal Walk With God is about the struggle of overcoming religion and entering into a relationship so deep and personal that it began before we were even conceived.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
While Waiting, Do Something
One of our common phrases is ‘just hang in there’. This means don’t give up, but just remain there especially when situations seem tough. But if we hang in there without further actions, the desired result may continue to delay or may never come. While waiting, believers ought to do more. For example, if you have prayed and fasted for one day maximum, try and add more days to your fasting. If you have prayed once every day, try to increase the number of times you pray as well as the quality of your prayer.
Run Towards The Mark
We should live our life understanding that we are actually in a race. Which means there is a price to be won if we make it to the final round. In the secular world, when one is involve in a track race, even if the person falls down, he can’t remain on the ground, he will stand up, brush of the sand from his feet and will continue. In God’s kingdom, we should do likewise. Any round you lose to the devil, let it go, ask for forgiveness and forge ahead to the final round (Philippians 3:14).
Endeavor To Be Different
This topic will focus on a life that is completely sold out to God. Someone living with the knowledge that he/she does not belong to himself. There is a purpose why I am created, God will tell me what that purpose is and I will live to please Him. In Jeremiah 1:5, God told him, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” It might not be convenient for us, but if we choose to live this way, God has lots of rewards for us.
Intimacy With The Father
This discussion will focus on our daily walk with The Father. We will serve God with the knowledge and awareness of His Presence with us 24 hours of the day. We will serve Him not according to the traditions of men, rather seeking Him, presenting our choices and actions to Him possibly before even taking certain actions. In Proverb 3:5, The Bible says “Trust in The Lord with all our heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight”. We don’t need to make mistakes first before calling on Him, we can get it right the first time if we involve him in our daily choices.
