Who Will Listen to You?

Are you feeling alone? Do you doubt anyone cares about you? Does it seem no one listens to you?

You are never alone, there is someone listening and ready at all times to fulfill your deepest yearnings. GOD.  I know you have heard that before (perhaps many times) but, though it is not an easy concept to grasp rest assure GOD is there waiting for you to reach out and begin a spiritual relationship. Yes, a “relationship”.

“Religion” may be perfectly fine and needed for fellowship, encouragement and learning, but it is a device of humans and subject to human variables; the goal? A “relationship” with GOD.  The Bible, or The Word of GOD provides us with information but, how we interpret and apply that information can be based on our subjectivity.  In this blog I do my best to put forth as an objective a message about what GOD wants as revealed in The Bible for us as humanly possible; with prayer and the help of “The Holy Spirit” I have the faith that this is true for the most part – I am still human after all.

If you feel abandoned, alone and that no one cares about you or, even hears you, by faith I believe GOD is there just waiting for you to reach out.

 

 Acts 2:38-39 ESV

And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”

Just like a relationship with another human goes through phases, so does your relationship with GOD.

You meet.  You become acquainted.  You share your life.  You provide each other something each of you needs. GOD desires your acknowledgement , your respect, your gratitude, your praise and your worship. GOD has already provided for you even as you ignored, shunned or said, “GOD is dead”: eternity through Christ Jesus, provisions,  . . . many good things.  Even though we live in this world where Christians can be persecuted you can be granted the strength to endure.  With your sights set on eternity with GOD the temporal trials of this world can fade from your sight.

James 4:8 ESV 

Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

GOD wants your acknowledgement, your worship and you to do what is right.  GOD offers: eternal life through Jesus, The Holy Spirit for wisdom and guidance, and The Word for teaching, edification and equipping you for good works.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV 

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

Of course there is much more to this story.  Fellowship with GOD and believers. Prayer. Guidance in many Earthly situations.  It takes time to learn and experience them.  I am confident GOD will provide you with what you need as a need arises. One step at a time; one day at a time.

John 3:16 ESV

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
