I don’t know about you, but there have been times in my life when I really needed God and it just seemed like he wasn’t there for me. Then, as I reflected on my relationship with God, I realized that I was giving lip service to the idea of my relationship with God but I wasn’t really including Him. I was asking Him for help and to solve my problems but I wasn’t listening to Him or trying to use His guidance. All I was really doing was wanting God to follow my instructions and do things my way. I’m not proud that it took a near death experience for me to recognize how inferior my ways were and how clearly superior God’s intelligence was in comparison to my own. Even now, I have to catch myself at times. It is easy to fall back into bad habits. I don’t tell God what to do but I am not always as good as I need to be at listening and seeking His will. If you have the same problem, I hope you will take the time to listen to the best friend and mentor any of us could ever have – our Father in heaven.
