NOVEMBER 22 – TALK

11/22               Philippians 4:6-7

6 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.

TALK

Talk with the Father.  Talk a lot with Him.  Tell Him everything that is on your mind.  Do it methodically.  Keep up a conversation list.  You will discover that as you talk with the lord a lot, you will grow in your confidence that He hears you and knows what is going on in your life.  With that conversation list keep an answer list that details what God says.  I would encourage you to only list His actions.  Actions speak louder than words and the Lord is never shy about His activity in your life.  After a while you will realize that your life is gripped by peace that emanates from the depths of your heart.  God loves you and you know it in a very real way.  You will also notice that over a period of time your conversation becomes less and less about you and more about those around you:  their needs, their protection, their wisdom, their forgiveness and all of those things that you have in abundance.  God is good.
