Experiencing God

experiencing-god

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.

(Note: inspired in part by some notes I took while listening to David Joseph and Jeremy Mangerchine doing a podcast a while back.)

    This was great. The church needs some simple structure to tease apart what can be, but is not supposed to be hard or frustrating.

    More and more each season, I am “seeing” the great importance of imagination and vision when we approach our time with Dad. One of the lost arts of practicing how to walk in His realms.

    I look forward to more of this as He leads. Thanks 🙂
