Experience, answers and reluctance Growng in Christ

As each of us grow in Christ, a lot of issues we might have once had can start to make sense again
and problems become resolved.

Mostly, and ultimately, we do have to go through our own learning process and experience the truth for ourselves- what other way is there after all; to know something to be absolutely true, because it has actually happened to you.

This morning, I was listening to a worship CD and I realized that a lot of those confident words sung, make far more sense and meaning than before, and that I, myself can nowadays indeed sing those songs with complete confidence.

But how do we come to know God? I was often bothered by this in the past- not knowing where to start or how to go about knowing Jesus, and always laced with a deadly dose of impatience!

Now, I realize the simplicity was blindingly obvious.

It is through time spent with Him, which is the only way to get to know anyone!

Likewise, the more time spent with our Heavenly Father, the more we'll know Him, and learn all He longs to teach us.

So, spending time in His presence, seeking truth, and going to Him in plenty of prayer which, I've found, also unravels another problem of wondering how we should pray.

Through asking the Lord for strength and other requests and experiencing His answers and love,I am realizing all the time how great His love is for me.

All these things amongst others- all these little moments in my life, have added up to me being able to praise and sing to God, knowing exactly where the words are coming from, and with a confidence now building that I often longed for so much when noticing other Christians.

Often, I've found that the crucial questions we have, usually answer themselves; God will present the answer in a simple way, but we do need to ask Him.

Lastly but never least, it can often be an issue when we experience a reluctance to spend a quiet moment with our Lord.

I have to confess that for me, it is usually that I want to watch more T.V, listen to music, or feed my vanity beast; anything actually, other than spend time with my maker and soul saver.

Why that is, is another issue altogether isn't it!

But I've found that lately I will read the Bible or put hymns on simply because of my reluctance, and the experiences have proved to be amazing.

To do this 'opposite to emotion' action is a useful skill in mastering our faults and disciplining ourselves.
I have been reluctant in this way since I was very small, not wanting to go to church on a Sunday morning, but being glad when I arrived there!

How exiting this journey is for each of us as we continue to grow in Christ!
God Bless
