Quality focused time with God brings wonderful gifts into our lives! Here are 7 of my favorites:
1. We learn that we are never alone.
Through our daily practice we discover God is stable, predictable and powerful. He is in us and with us.
2. We gain spiritual power.
As our human spirit connects to God’s Holy Spirit we gain spiritual power and inner strength, helping us to endure, persevere, and wait patiently.
3. Our trust in God allows us to rest.
God dwells within us as a counselor who reveals things to us in His perfect timing. He lightens our load so that we can rest.
4. We learn stillness.
We learn to stay still, observing situations from the heart. We learn to accept, allow, and have compassion for what’s happening within ourselves, without judgement. Then, we learn to hand it over to God, who leads us in his perfect timing.
5. We learn to listen.
During daily focused time with God we learn to listen. He wants us to hear His will for our life, gently guiding us towards everything good.
6. We grow.
As we merge with God’s Spirit we grow peace, love, patience, goodness, kindness, self-control, mercy, wisdom, truth, knowledge, inner strength and more.
7. We learn to hold and honor the presence of God within us.
Through daily time with God, we become more like Christ Jesus who exemplifies conscious love from the inside out.
