I was praying and asking God to reveal to me what message He would like me to share in an interview that I was doing on a program called Bay Focus on the Christian Television Network (CTN) and below is what “flowed” out of me.
If you will “be still” (step away from the noise of life) and meditate upon God’s Word and pray, God will speak to you; He will speak to your heart and mind and He will guide, lead and direct your steps.
You may be thinking, how will I know that it is God speaking to me (rather than my own thoughts)?
I believe that when we feel peace (calm) in our spirit, it is reassurance from God that we are hearing from Him and walking in His will; we are right where we’re supposed to be, doing exactly what He would have for us to be doing.
On the other hand, if we lack peace, it’s an indication that we are operating outside of the will of God, we aren’t doing what we’re supposed to be doing, so if you find yourself feeling out of peace (in turmoil), seek God, dive deep into His Word, pray and He will reveal His perfect plan for your life to you.
For instance, I never set out to create a product or start a new business, but while in quarantine, I believe that God awakened me in the night and gave me a vision for the Balanced Life Planner, which is designed to inspire and empower men and women alike to take back their time, find life balance and live their best lives everyday. For the first time in a long time I was "still" which enabled me to hear God's voice more clearly!
I want to encourage you to be still so that you too can hear the voice of God and when He gives you a vision, pursue it! Take a step of FAITH, do your part and He’ll do His part!
Be Still (step away from the noise of life)
Seek God’s face (meditate upon God’s word and pray)
Listen Closely to the Voice of God (God speaks to us through His word, music, people, nature and other things)
Follow Peace (which will lead you into God's perfect will for your life)
Take a Step of Faith (do your part)
Surrender (allow God to do his part)
Pray, Trust and Wait (be steadfast)
