Have you ever wondered what you would tell God if you could sit down with Him and have a face-to-face conversation? I have thought about that many times. I even had a list of questions prepared that I would rehearse in my head. There was a time when I was very desperate for answers. I said to myself that if I had the chance to sit down with Him, I would show Him my list of needs and ask Him why nothing had been done about it. I was ready to tell God what to do instead of listening to what He had to say. I would show Him my bills and go over some situations that affected me and my loved ones. I would basically tell Him that it was impossible to fix some parts of my life. I was approaching the whole thing the wrong way. Was I expecting Him to say “Yeah, you are right. Things are pretty bad and I can’t fix them”? He would never say that but because doubt was grabbing me by the head, I had some crazy thoughts of a defeated God. God cannot be defeated. God can fix anything. God can restore anything but doubt changes the narrative and makes it hard for us to see God for who He is. If God were to appear today and have a conversation with me, He would talk to me with love and faith. He would not change what He had to say based on my circumstances. He wouldn’t change His promises and who He is just because I was having a hard time. He is true to His Word, He doesn’t waver and He doesn’t panic. I was panicking but that didn’t mean He was as well. Everything the Lord would share with me would be from His Word, straight from His heart and laced in love.
What would God tell you today regarding your current circumstances? He would first tell you how much He loves you. He would put you at ease by just being Himself and He is love. Every word that would come out of His mouth would be dipped in love and wrapped in peace. God would tell you how He sent His only Son to die for you and He would go over the biggest miracle that has ever happened. He would tell you that the resurrection was enough for you. He would enumerate all the situations that were covered by the blood and it would take more days than they are in a year for Him to go over the whole list. He would reassure you and comfort you. He would hug you so tight that your life would be imprinted with this hug of love forever. He would smile and tell you to be of good cheer because He had conquered the world. You would probably focus on your problems and you would want to bring them up one by one. I know I would but He would show you that His grace was sufficient and that there is absolutely nothing to worry about.
God would show you that you have life in abundance through His Son. He would tell you about “the Jesus life.” The life you should be living now. He would bring awareness to the life that was bought for you on the Cross. It’s a life where Jesus is the priority, where everything revolves around Him and where peace is sovereign. I strongly believe that He would say exactly what you need to hear. If you are really wondering what He would share with you, open your Bible. Pray for the Holy Spirit to direct you to what the Lord has to tell you right now. You will be amazed at what is revealed to you. I did that. I prayed to have my one-on-one conversation with the Lord. Those intimate conversations happen every day now. They start my day, they pop in at different times during the day and they end my day. I spend a good amount of time in the Word of God so I can be more open to what the Lord has to say. The comfort and the encouragement that are placed in my spirit by His Spirit, are the blessings that keep me going. I know what the Lord is telling me today. It’s up to me to listen and to accept it. Friend, whatever you are facing now is not impossible for God. Whatever you are facing in your head can be resolved by the peace of the Lord. Whatever questions you have now are answered in the Word of God. God is consistent and He won’t change His tune depending on the severity of your circumstances. Be at peace. He has a breakthrough for you and He is speaking to you now, telling you how His love and mercy will get you through the day. Stay encouraged!
