The more we passionately we seek God’s presence, the better we learn to hear Him. Is there anyone MORE worth hearing than HIM??? He created us to be close to Him and deeply desires to guide our every step. He wants us to live in His unimaginable goodness, unparalleled wisdom and magnificent power, and I can always tell when I’ve strayed from His presence because my life becomes full of despair, disappointment, dissatisfaction, loneliness, and—I become a depressed, anxious, confused and an ugly, unhappy person.

Straying from His presence is like going back to a prison of ignorance, emptiness, darkness and sadness.

Our Heavenly Father did not create us to live like this!

We can live in GOD’s presence and hear HIS voice—but to do this, HE must be our center.

Having God as our center means we allow His Spirit—not the “wisdom” of our own ways—to have free reign in our life. Our wisest move each day is—completely centering our life around Him.

We begin and end our day with Him.

What does this look like? We take time to daily study God’s Word. Throughout each day we are mindful of His presence. During the day, we often ask Him: “What’s next, Lord?” While we converse with others, we are consciously tuned into Him so we can give them HIS wisdom. The Bible describes the experience of living in God’s wisdom as having “the mind of Christ.”

Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:6-7, 12)

Just as we cannot know the thoughts of another unless we know them; we cannot know the thoughts of God unless we know HIM.

We must love God so much that we long to always be close to Him. Jesus said we could be one with Him as He is one with His Father. (John 17:22) What a privilege to be one with God!

When we live as one with God, HE is our amazing gift to others.
