God speaks through His Word

God speaks through His Word and finding Hope through Jesus.

God speaks through His Word and finding Hope through Jesus.

Growing up as a teenager is when I heard how The Lord speaks through His Word the most. Even though I would get in trouble at times for reading my Bible, I would always find a way. Those moments with God were the best thing out of my week.

I usually spent the most time with Him on the weekends when I didn’t have much homework. Sometimes, I remember feeling His presence so strongly it felt overwhelming at times. I would read my Bible on my desk, then look onto my bed, and I almost felt like Jesus was sitting on the very edge, watching me read His Word. It felt good.

God speaks through His Word:

god speaks through his word
for the word of God is living and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and of marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and the intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 NKJV

Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation.  I will be honored throughout the world.” During this time, I truly was being still and trusting Him. I felt like God was putting things in my heart to do. Like, write short stories.

I would get my notepad, and sit down and just write. I remember one time, I wrote about three girls alone, nobody was watching them. I wrote a lot of those types of stories because I was home a lot all by myself. Then one time, I heard God tell me, I was going to be a minister. I didn’t really know if that met being a pastor or what.

Then in 2013, the Lord put on my heart to start an online church. I was in my twenties, and was just pretty much going with the flow, but didn’t know much about business. I reached a few people. So why did I stop? I think that was only met for a season. Plus I wasn’t getting a whole lot of support from my family.

Now that I’ve grown more in God, I know that the word “minister” isn’t only pastors, but for all people who share how God speaks through His Word. Which is what I have been doing through my blogs, books, and leading groups online. I believe in order to truly hear from God, you need to spend time in His Word, and pray. Sometimes, we need to be still, and let His Spirit speak to us.

I hate to admit, that now that I’m an adult, my reading and spending time with God isn’t what it used to be, but it’s getting better. We get so wrapped up in the busyness of life, that we just forget to pray or read the Bible, then we end up thinking, “why am I having such a terrible day?” Well, that one factor is missing! That is the Lord.

That is the Lord.

Prayer time and reading I try my best to pray first thing in the morning, and all throughout the day. If someone gives me a prayer request, I pray right then, even if it’s only a few words. God doesn’t need us to use big words, it only has to come from our hearts.

I don’t read just one translation of the Bible. I use quite a few, till I either find one I understand or has more meat to it that really makes me think. I use this Bible app called “Tecarta.” Most you have to pay for, but a few things are free. It has some great study bibles for you to download. Another one is called, YouVersion, which everything on there is free. Has great devotionals, and a lot of translations to choose from.

My suggestion would be if you’re having trouble really digging into the Word of God, and hearing how God Speaks through His word. Find a good Bible translation you can understand, or have someone go through things with you. Accountability is really important, or else we tend to slip away.

Bible studies and small groups are another way to hear The Lord speaking to you. I think it’s important to be in a Bible study or small group to help you grow in your relationship with the Lord. To come alongside one another to hold each other responsible. If you feel like there’s nothing in your area, there are a few online that I can lead you to as well as a few online churches.
