“To Turn, To Get Talked to

Thought for Today: Turn to, to Get Talked to

You are in a season where you need to hear from God. You are in a place in your life where you need direction, guidance, counseling, insight, favor, strength, purpose, strategy, or just need some comfort, and you just don’t know what to do. You have been taught all your life to just ask God to come to you and give you the answer, guidance, comfort, and wisdom. And the spirit of the Lord says to you today that every time you ask Him to come to you in any matter, it hurts His heart.  

“I thought God wanted me to ask Him to come to me when I have problems, Pastor Erick. What is so wrong about asking God to come to me?” 

The word of God says “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which ye have of God and ye are not your own” (1 Corinthians 6:19). 

Another reason why it’s wrong for you to ask God to come to you in any situation is because Jesus said, “If a man (woman) love me he (she) will keep my words and my Father will love him, AND WE WILL COME UNTO him (her) AND MAKE OUR ABODE (we will come and stay) with him (her)” (John 14:23).

I am going to give you one more reason why it is wrong to ask God to come to you in any situation that you are in. The word says, “Be strong and of good courage fear not, nor be afraid of them FOR THE LORD THY GOD, HE IT IS THAT DOTH GO WITH THEE HE WILL NOT FAIL THEE NOR FORSAKE THEE” (Deuteronomy 31:8).

Every time you ask God to come into a situation in your life it crushes His heart. Listen to me, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior the fullness of who God is, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit now dwells on the throne of your heart.

God doesn’t have to come to you in any matter of your life. God did not say “I will come to you in trouble,” God said in Psalms 91:15, “He (she) shall call upon me, and I will answer him (her) I WILL BE WITH him (her) IN TROUBLE, I will deliver him (her) and honor him (her).” 

Listen to me, you have to stop living your life as if God has to come to you in whatever situation you are in. You are a child of the living God, you are a joint heir to the throne of God, you are the apple of God’s eye. HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT THERE WITH YOU.

Live your life knowing that God is right there with you. And when God sees that you chose to turn to Him in any situation, it is then that the creator of heaven and earth will speak to you.  

For it is written, “And when the Lord saw THAT MOSES TURNED ASIDE TO SEE, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush and said ‘Moses, Moses’ And he said ‘Here am I’ and He (God) said ‘draw not nigh hither put off thy shoes from off thy feet for the place whereon you stand is holy ground.’ Moreover, He (God) said ‘I AM the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.’ And Moses hid his face for he was afraid to look upon God” (Exodus 3:4-6).

Stop living life as if God has to come to you. God is always with you. Turn to Him in the good, the bad, and the ugly and you will hear from Him. 

Be Blessed
