The way you live your life determines what God you are following. To believe in God means to walk in His ways. Our life is devoted to follow Him. Our thoughts are on the Lord. We trust in Him for wisdom and counsel. We worship the Lord in prayer. He is our number one priority. Nothing comes before Him. Our beloved Jesus said, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word.” Love the Lord with all your heart. Put aside all things to follow Him. Pray that the Spirit will be in your life. The Lord has a plan for You. Listen to Him always. Trust in Him. Give your heart over to Jesus. There is so much happiness in one’s life when they truly discover Him. Lives are changed. Joy will radiate in their soul. All it takes is a broken heart. We must let the Holy Spirit enter our hearts. The Spirit will teach us all things and witness that Jesus is Lord. We will hear His words and understand His message. Jesus said that, “He who is of God hears God’s words”. If we love God we will hear Him speak to us. His words will abide in our hearts. If you seek the Lord in prayer His words will mean more to you. The verses will come to life. Our faith will grow stronger than ever. We will be one with God. Our hearts will be overcome by His love. The Lord truly is alive in all those that believe.
There are many that say they follow God but their hearts aren’t in it for Him. They are content with their life. They might go to church but their hearts aren’t open to receive His message. They hear it but it doesn’t take root in their hearts. They may pray but it isn’t sincere. The Lord isn’t their focus when they pray. There is more love for their family than God. Most times they spend their days watching TV or other recreational things. There isn’t time for the Word of God in their lives. While Jesus was teaching the scribes and Pharisees He said, “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.” Earlier Jesus said that “My word has no place in you”. If we truly believe God is our father than accept Jesus as Lord. Pray that you may understand His words. All those that abide in Gods words will live by them. They will understand them. When Jesus speaks to our hearts we will obey His counsel. Commit today to follow Jesus. He is the only way to life eternal. Oh Lord, You are my God and I worship You. I cherish your holy words. You are in my heart. I can hear your voice. I give you my life. My life is in your hands. I surrender all to follow You. I want to always be with You. I love your presence.
37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you.
38 I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father.”
39 They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham.
40 But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.
41 You do the deeds of your father.” Then they said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father—God.”
42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word.
44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.
46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me?
47 He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”
