“For it is God who works in you to will and act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” (Philippians 2:13)
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to have a partner who loved you unconditionally in all circumstances, even when you mess up? Someone who knows exactly what your next steps should be for every decision in your life and who loves you so much that they would die for you? Have you ever thought about partnering with God through His son, Jesus Christ? I hope so! Because God wants to be with you in everything you do: in your marriage, in your business, in your relationships, and in all of your life’s circumstances!
You probably agree that the thought of having a partner like this sounds pretty good. But, do you know how to invite Jesus to join you? It’s easy! All you need to do is talk to him (pray), not some rote prayers or rituals. Just talk to God and tell Him your fears, worries, and goals. Invite Him to come alongside you as your partner. Your conversations (prayer) with God will help you find His will for your life. Prayer will line you up with God! Prayer will strengthen you and prepare you to face temptation in your life, and prayer will sharpen your discipline. Prayers will also open your eyes and make you more sensitive to your sins.
And, when you pray, the Holy Spirit will grab your heart and talk to you, like a partner! Maybe not audibly; but, you will here Him! Make a commitment now. Invite Jesus to be your life partner and start enjoying the deep peace and confidence that you will receive by having Him with you.
