I believe that God speaks to us (where we are), with the purpose of calling us out into more of His marvellous light. I am always thankful for His grace, but I am also careful not to misuse it.
A staple prayer of mine is this; to always be mindful of God. What that means to me is that I never want to be so caught up in the world that God gets the remnants.
My personal revelation is that I am to receive God’s grace with gratitude, and faithful stewardship. A win-win in my book, because the ability to do this requires dwelling in His presence, and a progressive relationship with His word, and the Holy Spirit.
At a time I needed it, God led me to Matthew 15:8, which pretty much says, do not honour me with your lips if your heart is far away from me. I asked to be rooted, and He answered with the seed of his word, which for me serves as a daily reminder to live for Him.
This verse also inspired these words:
I hear you calling me, deeper into your heart I hear you whispering, deeper, deeper, deeper still. I hear your voice, lighting my path with each step I hear you, your words holding on to me, showering me with an abundance of grace. I hear your heart Lord, calling out to me eager to make mine beat again. Here I am Lord, All heart, yours & mine eternal. 💜
