A Good Conversationalist

Psalm 27:14

Habakkuk 2:1-2

A good conversation generally consists of at least two people. Two people that are listening and responding. Two people that are engaged in the topic being discussed.

So why then, when it comes to our prayer life, do we often times have one sided conversations? Conversations that just consist of us making our requests known and usually little else?

How often do we watch for a response? Is it rare for us to quiet ourselves to listen to what God has to say on the matter?

Habakkuk had just finished talking to God. Afterwards he waited to hear what God had to say to him. The Lord answered.

Next time before you abruptly end your prayer time I encourage you to pause and listen for what The Lord has to say to you. Or get into the Word and see what He has already said on the matter.

Keep talking to Jesus about it. Keep listening for His response.

Jewels

Malachi 3:16-17

Beautiful. Precious. Without flaw. These words can be used to describe jewels. God uses them to describe His children. He refers to us as his jewels.

Followers of Christ should be found sharing what Christ has done for them among themselves. Christ hears these conversations. Christians should also be found thinking upon the ways of God. God knows our hearts. He has a book where he has written your name. Because your name is found in this book you will be pardoned of the punishment for your sin.

How wonderful it is to think that because of our choices on earth we can become as jewels to Jesus in heaven and that one day He will gather us together to be forever with Him.
