Where Do I Find God

Where Do I Find God

We have all heard it said, “God is every­where”. Well if that is  true then where do I find God? Find­ing God on a per­sonal level, and estab­lish­ing a rela­tion­ship with Him requires some effort on our part. The good news is, God knows you! In fact He knows every­thing about you there is to know. It is also true, that regard­less of what you may or may not have done through­out your life, God loves you and wants noth­ing but good things for you.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to pros­per you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jere­miah 29:11 IV)

Help Me Find God.

What you may not know, is that God, even though He is “all pow­er­ful”, does not inter­fere in your life unless you ask Him to. God cre­ated you as a free willed being, and as much as much as He may want to help you, He can only do so with your permission.

So you may ask where can I find God? He is by your side and He may want to help you, but He can only do so with your per­mis­sion. This is because He is not a mas­ter manip­u­la­tor, nor is He a pup­peteer who uses His might and power to force you to do His will. But He did extend a won­der­ful invi­ta­tion to any­one will­ing to take Him up on it.

The Bible says,

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8 (KJV)

What’s really great about this invi­ta­tion is that there are no pre­req­ui­sites or con­di­tions attached to it. All we have to do is make up our minds that we want to get to know Him.

“But how do I draw near to Him?” you ask. The answer is very sim­ple. First, keep reading..

Giving Thanks To God For His Blessings-Show Gratefulness To The Lord

How Can We Show Our Gratefulness To The Lord – Are you presently giving thanks to God in all of your present life-circumstances? This may appear to be tough at first, especially when you’re experiencing a stretch of difficulty.

The bible says (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV) “in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” Note that this verse says give thanks in everything NOT to give thanks for everything . Today, regardless of what problems you may be facing, try to find something to be thankful for.

Focus on the goodness of God rather than what’s not good in your life. As soon as you change your way of thinking and begin giving thanks to God, it paves the way for God to move on your behalf.

That’s why it says “this is God’s will for you.” He wants you to draw close to Him to receive His love and strength by offering thanks. That’s why we must always have the attitude that says, “God, despite what’s happened, I choose to remain grateful. I may be in poor health, but Father, thanks for being my strength. Thanks for giving me great family and friends.” Or, “I may be struggling in my relationship, but God, thanks for being there for me. Thank you for giving me another day.

Whenever you give thanks in everything, you’ll see God’s power move for you personally, and you’ll leave that problem far better off than before.
