Life Hacks - How to Have a Conversation with God (Week Eight)
Your soul is the most important part of you.
How to have a conversation with God
Romans 5:6-8 (NLT) When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 8But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
Our conversations with God require an authority check.
Matthew 28:18 (NLT) Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.”
We have authority issues because we have a control craving.
The times we take control the most are the times we talk to God the least.
I > HE
HE > I
Matthew 6:9-11 (NLT) Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins.
Ephesians 1:19 (NLT) I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him.
Our conversations with God reveal our role with God.
Romans 8:15 (NLT) So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.
Galatians 4:4-7 (NLT) But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.
Father, I feel so unworthy to be called Your child. I know at times I disappoint You and yet each time I come to You, You receive me like your own child. I need Your acceptance and love. Thank You for adopting me. Thank You for being a loving Father to me. I accept the place You have made for me in Your heart and Your family. I accept my adoption into Your family.
