It Brings Perspective

We need the Lord to speak to us so that we get his perspective when we feel like we’re drowning. We’re not. We never are. We are already overcomers. Jesus has already overcome. Hearing His voice is vital. We can take all the facts and the realities of whatever we’re facing and hear His perspective on it. He can remind us He’s already won.

It’s Life Giving

“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
    I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

Jeremiah 31:3 NIV

I want to hear His voice. It’s loving and kind. It brings life. He’s always seeking a relationship as a loving father.

He has Answers

fearless hearing god prayer Apr 04, 2019

Have you heard the way to look brave is to “do it scared”?

That’s what I’m doing! Stepping out and saying yes to God’s challenge to me.
