GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE ….
“Check Your Connection!”
We connect with God through prayer, the study of His Word, the activation (living) of His Word, and by obedience to His Word. At times though, especially when things are going well in our lives, we become complacent. We do not do what we know we should be doing as believers.
When things are going well in our lives, we tend to not praise God as much as when things are not going well. Is this You?
You are not alone! We sometimes forget to praise Him when things are going well because we assume that since God is blessing us our connection to Him is intact. Let us stop for a moment, keyword: assume. Exactly! Everything you’ve heard about the word, assume, is correct. Time to evaluate your relationship with God. Time to check your connection!
When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we are entering into a partnership with God. In a partnership, as in a conversation, there must be a coming together. The word, together, is the common denominator.
“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” – Matthew 18:20 (KJV).
Working in partnership with God, as He blesses you, you in turn, should be blessing someone. You in conversation with God: pray, He will answer you. God in conversation with you: He talks to you through His Word (read and study) the Bible. Answer Him by being obedient to His Word – follow His Instructions. This is how we dialog with God.
“It is important to dialog with God. Connect your prayer life to your Word life.” – Pastor Victor S. Brice
You should be able to talk to God about anything and expect Him to answer you in everything. However, since complacency will creep into your life, stay alert. Stop complacency before it starts. Praise Him, through the good and the bad. Stay in the Word – be obedient to His Word – dialog with Him – connect your prayer life to Word life – and, from time to time check your Connection.
“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” – John 14:6 (NIV).
