If you have reservations about hearing from God as a result of other’s overuse of “God told me” or for any other reason for that matter, please don’t dismiss the possibility because of someone’s attempts at manipulation. God has been misquoted since the Garden of Eden. There will always be people that use Him and His Word to get their own way. Don’t let them discourage you from seeking to hear His voice. There’s nothing better. His love for you would not be complete if there wasn’t two-way interaction. So don’t quit, He has much to tell you.

There is no better way to start our day than to have our first thought be of The Lord. Sometimes “huh?” may be our first thought but from there we can greet Him with something like “Good morning, thank you for last night’s sleep and help me appreciate the gift that today is. Will You please help me walk through this entire day with You and give me reminders that You’re here especially when I start to drift? Use me today Father, let Your love for me and my love for You be so obvious that opportunities to share You will be everywhere. Please give me a taste of how much you love the people we come across today and let me give some of your love to them.” If we have this type of intimate interaction before our head leaves the pillow each day we really are getting a head start on whatever might be in store for us.

God wants more than anything for us to know Him. The relationship He desires with us must go both directions. He reveals Himself to us through His Word, creation, prayer and everyday interaction and one of the best ways to know when it’s Him is to be familiar with what we call His attributes or characteristics, those things about Him that are certain and have already been discovered. So let’s take a few days and explore some of the attributes of God.
