Want to experience or hear God more?
It starts by seeking Him and expecting that He wants this as much as you do. He is already pursuing you more than you even know. His thoughts are ever for you. So, if you want to crash into Him…
Narrow your focus on Him. Take all those cares and worries and set them aside for now and just breathe. See all the things that are good and lovely in your life. Set your heart toward those things.
If you have trouble being still, put on some worship music. It doesn’t even have to be slow; it’s whatever will cause you peace and the ability to relax. You might even want to sing or hum along just to settle your thoughts and still you soul.
Once you are in a place of rest, consider:
What do you see or imagine that you are both doing together?
Peer into that a little more.
Let that vision expand – dwell there for a while.
Catch those almost fleeting thoughts and images…blow on them.
Once you do, they will grow and become real conversations and experiences with God; He’s the one sending them after all.
Once you and He have spent some time together doing whatever it is you both want to do, go give it away to someone else – they need Him as much as you do.
