We do not need an intellectual approach to finding God. It is not about what you know.
II Peter 1
Really, you do not need to know anything to come to God. However, once you are with God, then you desire to know.
Those who have found God need to speak up. Help others by your testimony.
Finding God is not the end because you are still influenced by desires, lusts, emotional imbalance, incorrect training, and the consequences of your life.
Are you searching for God with all of your heart?
Are you sincere in your desire to find God.
What happens when you find God?
What do you do?
What does God do?
John 14:12-16, 21, 26-29
Guidelines for being with God:
• Study the Bible with all your strength.
• Be sincere.
Being with God will give you a certain attitude:
• God takes the most important place in your life.
• You give up your own will.
• You only want to do God’s will.
• You realize that God has a better way than you do.
• You realize that God loves you and that His way will benefit you more than will your way.
• You realize that the impossible parts of God’s plan are possible by the miracles of God.
• God’s revealed plan for your life is awesome.
• You become His.
• The power of God in your life is so overwhelming that you are on a high.
• You experience ecstasy frequently.
• You know that talking about the God things makes your life with God more real to you.
• You want everyone to have what you have, a life with God.
• It seems so incredibly unbelievable that people are so unwilling to be with God.
• Prayer ceases to be about you but becomes first and foremost praise to God.
• Thanks, gratefulness and intercession become the main themes after praise.
• You still talk to God and ask for things to fulfill His vision for you.
• You know and believe that seeking God’s kingdom and His righteousness come first. You know that God knows what you need so you do not need to repeatedly ask for it.
• The infinite complexities that God deals with to coordinate your life to fulfill the vision convinces you of God’s great love for you.
• Because God loves you so much, how can you not love everyone else? God loves everyone else too.
• You want to preach the good news of the kingdom of God to everyone.
• You want to prove God by your testimony.
• You value what God values:
• Hate what is evil.
• Love others.
• Show respect to others.
• Encourage others.
• Build relationships with everyone.
• Do more that your share.
• Consult with others on ways to do things.
• Be a helping hand.
• Be the good influence in all situations.
• Obey laws.
• Keep out of debt.
• Obey God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, The Ten Commandments, The Bible, and your conscience.
• If it feels wrong, you do not do it.
• You proceed if you have peace about it, if it is in accordance with the Word of God, if it is in accordance with the vision that God has given to you, if circumstances seem to reinforce it, if God tells others to tell you to do it, if Scripture reading reinforces the desirability of it, and if praying also leads to the establishment of the desirability of it.
• If God tells you to do something, you do it.
• If the Holy Spirit urges, impels, or gives you an overpowering feeling that you should do something, you do it immediately.
Thank God! It is easy!
Let us be real!
We are stopped from coming to God because of our heart. We are stopped because our heart is not right. We do not want to find God or we would find God because it is so easy!
