1005th -- Tuning Into God


With the many pressures and stresses that we go through on a daily basis,
we should remember where our strength and ability comes from. Thinking 
that we can do all things on our own will leave us exhausted and unable to
handle the struggles that come our way. Only by surrendering to God and 
seeking that His will be done in our life can we be truly strengthened, 
encouraged and shown the right path for our life. How do we seek God's 
will? We do so by spending time alone with Him in prayer and we feel God
speak to us by His Spirit when we read His Word. When we take the time to
seek God for comfort, peace and strengthening, we are ensuring our success
for our future. The Lord is pleased when we seek Him. When our mind is 
focused on the Lord, He will give us peace that surpasses understanding. 
No matter what we go through and no matter what comes our way, we will not
be moved or tempted to worry about anything. The Lord who holds us 
securely in His Hands will not let us go. He will protect us because our
trust and faith lies solely in Him. When we tell God that our trust is in
Him, that is when Heaven and Earth will move on your behalf.

Be encouraged to think on the Lord more. Spend time with Him in prayer, 
read your Bible more and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you. Let God 
see your investment in Him. When we give all that we have to God and ask
that He lead us onto the best path, we are showing the Lord that our trust
lies solely in Him and that we trust in His divine plan for our life. No
matter what comes your way, know that God loves you and wishes for you to
commune with Him. Never forget that you are His beloved child and He 
loves you with an everlasting love. He wishes for you to be strengthened,
encouraged, blessed and lifted up. Thank Him for all that He has given 
you in times past and seek to do His will all the days of your life. 
Doing so will ensure a blessed life.

I hope this message inspires and challenges your heart to spend time alone
with the Lord more to fellowship with the Lord and to seek His will for 
your life. When we seek the Lord the Bible says that He will be found by


I find myself using the mute button on my remote control more and more 
these days. There is just so much on television right now that I don’t 
want to listen to. Whether it is hypocritical politicians blowing enough 
hot air to cause a Summer heat wave, shallow television stars arguing on 
horrible reality shows, or screaming commercials trying to force me to buy
something I neither need nor want, I find myself turning them down, tuning
them out, and turning them off.

Usually after muting the media I will sit at my kitchen table, sip some 
cold tea, and gaze out the window. I will look at the beauty of nature 
instead of the glare of the television. I will allow the noise of the 
world to melt away and rest in the silence of my own soul. Then I will 
breath deeply, close my eyes, and listen carefully for the loving voice 
that never lies, argues, or screams. This sweet voice uplifts me and 
encourages me. It tells me to keep trying, to keep loving, and to keep 
doing all I can to make this world a better place. It reminds me that life
is worth living, that goodness lies in us all, and that we are all here 
for a purpose.

This gentle voice is God speaking to my heart, soul, and mind. He is 
always ready to talk to us in these quiet moments of prayer. He is always
ready to bless us with His peace. He is always ready to guide us with His
wisdom. He is waiting patiently to fill us with His love. He is waiting 
patiently to show us how we can love each other as well. He is waiting 
patiently to give us joy.

Take the time today to tune into God. Turn off the television, silence the
cell phone, and shut down the computer. Sit down in the quiet. Close your
eyes and open your heart. Breath slowly and deeply. Gently pray to God for
His love and His guidance. Then just listen. You will be amazed at the 
thoughts that come into your mind, the peace that comes into your heart, 
and the love that fills your soul. You will be amazed at how tuning into 
God can tune up your life.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Philippians 4:4-7 “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. 
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful 
for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with 
thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of 
God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds 
through Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 105:1-5 “O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon His name: make known 
His deeds among the people. Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him: talk ye 
of all His wondrous works. Glory ye in His Holy Name: let the heart of 
them rejoice that seek the LORD. Seek the LORD, and His strength: seek His 
face evermore. Remember His marvellous works that He hath done; His 
wonders, and the judgments of His mouth.”

Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith
the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will
hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search
for me with all your heart.”

Psalm 107:6-9 “Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and He
delivered them out of their distresses. And He led them forth by the right
way, that they might go to a city of habitation. Oh that men would praise
the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of
men! For He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
