Seeking God's Own Heart

Seeking God's Heart


Seeking God's heart is something that we all should have to desire of doing.  Hebrews 11:6 says, "For whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him."
This scripture tells us that we must believe in and seek God in order to receive His blessings. 

Seeking God means spending time with Him and understanding who He is.  Spending time and seeking Him requires Prayer, Reading, and Fasting
  • Prayer is the communications between you and God.  Find a quiet place where God has your undivided attention. Tell Him everything and ask Him to reveal things in your life that are a hindrance.  Also, allow God to speak after you're done speaking.  My Pastor stated last night at bible study that God is a gentleman, He will allow you to talk but when you're done allow Him to speak and reveal things to you.
2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land"

  • Reading God's word allows you to strengthen your faith in God. The Bible tells us exactly who God is and what He requires of us.....DAILY.  The Bible is our manual to life. Mediate daily on his words and allow Him to speak through the scriptures. 
2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness"
  • Fasting and prayer go hand in hand.  Fasting allows us to deny our flesh and hear God's voice more clearly, kind of like a spiritual reviving and can also result in a breakthrough.  Many people fast to hear God’s voice and create a stronger bond with God.  I will honestly say that fasting has brought about a huge change in me and my church family.  I am able to see things clearly with spiritual eyes and my faith in God has increased tremendously.  

Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”


Continue to seek God by Praying, Reading, and Fasting! Watch how He blesses you abundantly above all you could ask for!

Be Blessed! God Loves You!
