..is to via prayer and biblical worship.. know the Lord well. That's priority number one. Our first ministry is unto Him--blessing His holy Name.
Then after that it's to figure out where others ..those around us.. actually are on their spiritual journey and righteously do whatever will encourage or help bring them a step closer to knowing the living Word well. #Jesus
"If you don't want God's will, don't ask for it." ~ Oswald Chambers
It's so easy to do... we humans tend to employ prayer as a last resort, but the Lord actually wants us to pray as our first line of defense. We pray when backed into a corner so to speak, when there's nothing else that we can do (no condo--not a bad time for this), but God also wants us to pray before we do anything at all.
Nothing will separate you from Him believer. Remember.. God is way bigger than your past, and greater than all you've done and plan to do. He loves you more in this moment than all the individuals and things you've ever long-term loved.. or will love put together. No, actually far more than that--it's impossible to over exaggerate the greatness of the Lord or His charity youward. God loves you as much as He loves His son Jesus and zip can separate you, believer. Read through Romans
"What do you want Me to do for you?" —Luke 18:41a
"Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do?" —Genesis 18:17
"Be still before the Lord. Wait patiently for Him." Psalm 37:7
When you stop frantically running almost everywhere and away from, but instead to.. and simply stand open before the Lord, He will give you that comforting grace you've been longing for. Praise the Lord. Hear from and obey Him.
"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer." Ps. 19:14. Cuz I know how the words of my mouth could ..so quickly go unacceptable.
God actually rewards those who seek Him out. Are you feelin' sorta empty, lonely, afraid, hurtin' or guilty? Knowing comes before asking.
So sorry if you are. Spend some time worshiping God, and let Him just fill you until your cup overflows if ya will.
"The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot." Psalm 16:5
