Faith is the Language We Use to Communicate with God.

There are so many ways out there to talk to God. You’ve seen it. People write books, give seminars and crusades on the ‘How to Talk to God.’ Do really think God made communicating with Him that difficult? I don’t! He created you to communicate with you, that’s why you are ‘made in His Image’ not vice versa. So… what is the problem people?

TIME, yes, TIME people! People do not have or make time for God!

Talking God's Language

Ouch, ouch, ouch all over the place, I know that hurts. This is something you cannot blame God for. God has given each of us the same twenty-four hours in a day. No, God has not given me more minutes in my hour then you. You might want to believe that, but it is not true. Be accountable for your actions, you alone are responsible for how you use your time. Jesus saved you, now you make time for Him. Remember ‘time was made’ by Jesus for you.

John 1:3

Amplified Bible (AMP)

3All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.

Just look in the mirror and point the finger. OMG I believe it’s your finger-pointing right back at you. Now own your ‘timelessness’ (I thought I made that word up – it didn’t underline red) and do something about it. You are not independent of time. If you are still looking in the mirror notice how time ravished your face. You are not controlling time, so start controlling ‘you’ so you can have some ‘time’ to spend with your Savior.

Before you buy one more book, or go to one more seminar and waste some more time. Open your Bible and see what God says, OK? Look at Hebrews 11 verse 6:

Hebrews 11:6
Amplified Bible (AMP)
But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

Before you go any further read it again, S..L..O..W..L..Y! Those of you who didn’t get it, the word is slowly.

I have asked many people if they have Faith and just what is Faith? They are clueless. So, can you answer the questions above? Look at the scripture again, you cannot get to the second part of the verse till you get the first part. O.K. Let’s proceed. Everything about God starts with Faith. Why? He is Faith; according to His Word not mine. In:

Hebrews 12:2

King James Version (KJV)

 2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

On our part everything is about God who is Faith. On God’s part everything is about us.

1 John 4:10

Amplified Bible (AMP)

10In this is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins.

WE ARE LOOKING AT GOD BECAUSE HE IS LOOKING AND LOVING US NOW AND FOR ETERNITY.

Faith begins with God and is God, we are still defining Faith by the Word of God. Faith is God according to Hebrews 12:2 from the above scripture, this is important because you cannot please God without Faith who is Jesus. This is revealed in the following scriptures:

Matthew 3:17

  • King James Version
    And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my belovedSon, in whom I am well pleased.

Matthew 17:5

  • King James Version
    While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my belovedSon, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

2 Peter 1:17

  • King James Version
    For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my belovedSon, in whom I am well pleased.
    Amplified Bible
  • For when He was invested with honor and glory from God the Father and a voice was borne to Him by the [splendid] Majestic Glory [in the bright cloud that overshadowed Him, saying], This is My belovedSon in Whom I am well pleased and delight,

In the above scriptures the key is what ‘pleased God’ which is His beloved faithful Son Jesus. This is why Jesus said that no man comes to the Father except through Him.

John 14:6

Amplified Bible (AMP)

6Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.

I WILL CONTINUE NEXT TIME ON ‘Faith is the Language We Use to Communicate with God’ SHOWING HOW WE USE FAITH TO TALK TO GOD.

LOVE CONQUERS ALL…
Much love,
