A Word with God – 4
Do we ever benefit from talking to God? Is it the truth or superstition? And I would say, it is belief. This belief comes from experience. Nobody can force it upon you. It has to be felt. Then only you will be able to see that He also talks to you. He answers you back.
Excerpts from life
- After so many trials when someone helps, you feel so relaxed. You feel like this is what I was searching for so long. Why didn’t I see it before? Because God wanted to realise the importance hard work and then taste the sweet success. This help is an answer from God.
- When you keep piling on the clothes, accessories and whatnot from shopping day after day. And one day, you feel you should donate all the unused things to less privileged ones. Because He gives you the idea of helping those who can’t help themselves.
- You talk badly to someone and feel sad for your behaviour. Because He tells you to choose your words wisely as it hurts. When you don’t like somebody’s behaviour, try to control your emotions and your immediate reaction. Being angry is the worst result of disagreements and cause of many wrong decisions in life.
- When you are hurt by your loved one, you don’t want to talk to him/her for the whole life. But as a day or two passes, you get back to normal. Because He explains to you that love and relationships have a higher status than behaviour. At one time we talk harshly to a person and the other second we are kind to the same person. This is because we keep changing our behaviour according to the situations. But we don’t keep changing relationships as we love them irrespective of their behaviour.
Our life is full of examples where God is guiding us and makes us feel His presence. It is just that we need to believe in Him and leave the rest to Him. I have shared some of my experiences if you have an incident when you actually felt him, do share with the world.
