I was (ready to be) inquired of by those who asked not; I was (ready to be) found by those who sought Me not. I said, Here I am, (says I AM) to a nation (Israel) that has not called on My name. I have spread out My hands all the day long to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, after their own thoughts-
God is so desperate to inquire us! He has secrets he wants to reveal, people to heal, miracles to perform, a dying generation to save. I had to repent for not letting God not be the focus of all my thoughts. I dont want us to settle in life with stupid things that has no meaning. What really matters in this life is making Jesus known. Not religion...but the raw real passion and love I have for God to spread in the hearts of the people that dont know him!
How do we do this....by daily falling to our knees and offering up prayers of desperation for the lost. When we pray it takes our eyes off of ourselves. When we focus on God by reading the word confessing it day in and day out it breaks of the strongholds of life, self, doubt and opens up the doors to faith. Letting God be God and stop blocking what he wants to do in and through us.
If we dont fall to our knees and lift God above our needs think of the countless souls that will suffer. That puts it in perspective that some of the people that I meet will never know about God and how he loves them because I was too busy worrying about my life and how my needs are going to work out.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
And the best part of all is when you pray all worry, doubt, confusion, stress goes away! That doesnt mean you dont face these things, but as you continually offer it back up to God he gives you peace to focus on what really matters! Him!
