If you could talk with President Trump for 10 minutes, how much would that be worth to you? OK, maybe you hate Trump, but what about Putin, Dalai Lama or Steven Spielberg? Priceless I would say, don’t you agree?
Now think of this, what if you could have private time with THE most powerful being in the universe? No, not Captain Marvel or Thanos (or the One-Above-All for the Marvel geeks), but GOD. Yes God himself. How much would that be worth? Beyond priceless, right?
What if I told you, you can, for real. The prayer strategy I want to focus on today is Two Chars. I had the privilege and honor to record Bob Bodine narrating his best seller book Two Chairs. A very simple concept. One chair for you, one chair for God. You sit down at a quiet time, pray for a little bit and shut up. Because when you pray is about what you want and when you LISTEN is about what He wants.
It works! No, He won’t give you the next winning numbers for the Lottery, bummer. But for me He gave me undeniable evidence that it was Him speaking. Ask me to tell you the stories and I will, gladly. And I’m confident He will do the same for you. God craves a relationship with you, yes! He wants to participate in your life. I thought, I’m too boring for God to want to do anything with me, but I was WRONG. He ENJOYS the simple things. Really.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success. Proverbs 3:6
Do you get it? In EVERYTHING you do. Not just the things you need help with. Everything! Bring Him along, enjoy His company. Yes, enjoy His company as much as He enjoys your company. Sit down, relax and even if you are just spending quiet time with God, it is still worth it.
