Have you ever asked God to teach you something new? When I was in Bible College I began to pray this prayer and remembered to do it on a daily basis for a period of my life. I look back now at those days and see how much I grew emotionally, spiritually, interpersonally, and financially. It reminds me to not forget to ask Him to teach me something new now, because I continually want to grow closer to the person He wants me to be.
It is hard to remember when life gets busy. When work and home demand time and energy that pulls me away from spending time with God each day. But it is in these struggles I choose to get up early and sit in His presence, seeking Him and His ways for my life, and watch Him teach me.
I have learned that this prayer has continued in my conversations with God no matter what I am doing, whether working or working out. Just the other day I asked God to teach me something new while swimming and He spoke to me about something that my husband and others have been encouraging me to do but I have not been able to receive. It took asking God to teach me, that allowed my heart to be willing to listen to what He has been trying to teach me through others.
So my question for you today is, what has God been trying to teach you, and hasn't been able to because your heart has not been in the right place to receive? It's questions like these that challenge me and I want to challenge you with, because we all need God's help to grow, and we all need to learn how to get there. The question is will you ask Him to help you or not? The choice is yours!
Is this you?
.Do you want to know God more? Do you want someone to help you do so? Do you want someone to walk alongside you who has been in your shoes? Do you feel alone? Do you want to experience the healthier and happier you?
