Are you looking for God? Have you heard about this dude called Jesus? Does the idea overwhelm you? Or seem difficult? It’s not. It’s simple. You can do it if you choose to, because it is your choice.
In the Bible, Jeremiah 29:13 states: “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
If you do not have a Bible, most Christian churches will give you one for free, or you can use the YouVersion Bible app on your smartphone or device, or you can just plain old Google it. God’s Word is easily accessible in our world of information, so you can find Him when you search for Him. He will work in your heart if you let Him. That is the main key – letting Him in. How do you do that?
Find a quiet place to be alone, then clear your mind and open your heart. Make yourself vulnerable to Him by letting go of all your preconceived ideas (this is the hardest part). Next, when the Lord’s peace has fallen upon you, accept the gift that has been given for you: PURE GRACE. Talk to the Father/Holy Spirit/Jesus and tell Him thank you for dying to wash you clean from sin. We are all sinners – we can’t help it; but the gift that has been given to us is the opportunity to reunite with the Most Holy One in Trinity. He gave that gift because He loves each and every one of us.
Pray as Jesus taught us in Matthew 6:
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 This, then, is how you should pray:
‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.'”
You may not feel a SHAZAM moment, but I guarantee that once you enter into relationship with Him, you will have one. Or two. Or more. They will come when you read His Word and open yourself to Him. We cannot be rejoined with God through acts or deeds, but when we seek Him with a humble heart and accept the gift He has given, we can be saved. Then, we want to walk in the light with Him and show the world we are followers by acting out those good deeds.
