Getting to Know God

…NEW WAYS OF LEARNING ABOUT YOU

Dear Jesus,

You are the highest provider and because of this I trust that you will guide me into new ways of learning about you.

You’ve invited me to come as I am filled with cares, worries, concerns anything that is weighing me down and causing me stress, to come to you and to learn your ways.

You know me so well. What ways will help me understand you better?

Show me creative ways I can learn more about you and get to know you?

In your Name,

Amen


 

TO DESIRE AND ENJOY YOU

Dear Jesus,

I am so sorry for not meeting you this morning.

I have no-one to blame but myself.

You had so much to say about diligence and hard work in the bible.

Sometimes I am lazy and I don’t want to get up and work.

I realise that even though I might think off all the different ways I can spend time with you, the real change has to start with me.

I want to be diligent, I want to be industrious and hardworking not just in my quiet times with you but in all areas.

Most of all I want to love these qualities and enjoy them.

You said that as we delight in you, you will give us the desires of our hearts.

I understand that in order to desire and enjoy these things I have to desire and enjoy you.

Thank you.

I am so grateful to know that you never make anything hard for us to understand.

You are there to help us put what we have learnt into action even when we fall.

In your Name,

Amen

WISDOM COMES FROM YOU

Dear Jesus,

You said that if we ask for insight and are interested in knowledge, unpacking and understanding things we will come to know you and your ways.

How is that?

There is a lot of things that we’re interested in, we all have passions and desires.

Can you give us insight into all of these things.

You said that wisdom comes from you, and we have asked for it.

You’ve also given us all a desire to know you. 

For as long as we live we will keep asking for wisdom about everything so that we can come to know you.

In your Name,

Amen

TEACH US TO PRAY

Dear Jesus,

Forgive me for not taking the time out to spend time with you and talk to you.

I realise I haven’t made that time for you.

I think I understand just a little bit why you said we need to stay connected and abided with you.

When I pray now its hard to express my concerns.

Teach us to pray.

In your Name,

Amen

GETTING TO KNOW GOD

Dear Jesus,

Thank you so much for thinking of me.

You sent an angel to encourage me yesterday and to send me that gift to cheer me as I walked along my way.

Thank you for thinking about us all, whom you send angels to help us get courage and inspiration to keep going.

In our jobs, in our homes, in our churches, whereever we are your always there to keep our eyes focused on the kind and righteous things that you do.

You said that the upright will behold your face.

Help us to behold your face and see what your like.

In your Name,

Amen

THE MORNINGS

Dear Jesus,

You woke up really early in the mornings to pray and study.

Yet you had such an active and busy life.

Its really hard for me to do that with such a busy lifestyle. With committments and responsibilties.

 I don’t feel good when I neglect learning about you and spending that time with you. 

Is there something wrong?

The committments that I have are good in itself. But are in vain without your input.

Please give me strength to wake up in the mornings to have that time with you.

In your Name,

Amen

BACK TO THAT PLACE

Dear Jesus,

I woke up this morning and opened my devotional to spend time with you.

Thank you for these opportunities to spend time with you.

Thank you for encouraging us time and time again to spend time with you.

For offering the resources and giving us that push that we all need.

Its not easy in this fast paced world. 

Everyone demands your time and energy on things that don’t really matter in the long run, not for eternity.

Expectations are high and committments are much.

But don’t ever stop Lord, pulling at our minds, telling us to spend time with you.

Even when we are not, convict us more and more and help us so that we can get back to that place

In your Name,

Amen

COME CLOSER TO ME

Dear Jesus,

You gave me clear instructions to make an effort to get close to you. To come near to you.

I am far away from you right now and I am struggling to get closer to you.

But Lord although it is really difficult you also promised that as I make those steps to know you, to talk to you and reach out to you, you will come closer to me.

Wow! Thank you Lord for this. 

In your Name,

Amen
