I cannot know God personally if I do not have a relationship with God. I have been told that a relationship with God starts with prayer. It starts with worship. It starts with meditating on his words. How many of us really know how to pray, worship, and meditate? If I am being completely honest with myself. I do not know. So, my prayer this morning consisted of me asking God to direct me. I want to know how to pray, meditate and worship effectively. God hears my prayers. I could hear God say “Many of my people do not know how to worship me. My people do not know how to pray to me. My people do not know how to meditate. You are not alone”. I am so thankful that God still speaks today.
I was encouraged to go BACK TO THE BEGINNING. That’s right Genesis 1:1. If I am going to grow in God in any way, shape, or form. I must go back to the old testament and allow it to build into the new testament. “In the beginning God created the heaven and earth”. If I can believe this very verse. Everything else to follow in the bible will flow.
Genesis 1:1 informs me that it all started with God. The word begin can be defined as “start”. From the start the bible wants us to know the creator. God! God is the creator of the heaven and the earth. Immediately I can see myself in the bible. I have never seen it this way til now. God created the earth and I am living on the earth. I too am a product of the creator. Everything within the heaven and earth is God made. This brings gladness to my heart. I am a creation of God. I am not who people say I am. I am not who the enemy tells me to be. I am a creation of God. I was created to bring glory to the creator of the heaven and earth. Woman you too were created by God. WE were created by God for God. I encourage you to seek the kingdom of God with me. Do you know who you are? If you do not. I AM INSPIRED TO TAKE YOU BACK TO THE BEGINNING!
Seek can be defined as “attempt to find (something). I am on a mission to find the kingdom of God and his righteousness. Righteous means (of a person or conduct) morally right or justifiable; virtuous. Basically, I want to be right with God. In Matthew 6:33 KJV “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you“. I believe that the first step to getting everything you need from God consist of finding his kingdom and his righteousness. I need to find God’s authority and the right way to live here on earth. It is only right that I start at the beginning.
Join me on this journey through the bible as we seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness to learn how to effectively pray, worship and meditate on our creator.
