“What do you think of me?”

Lately I’ve been feeling a bit lost in my relationship with Father God. If I’m being honest, I’ve had no problem hearing Him for other people while I’m praying for them, but for me personally, I feel like I haven’t received anything meaningful or encouraging for awhile. Then suddenly it occurred to me, when was the last time I asked?

If you’re feeling like you haven’t heard God’s voice in awhile, I want you to try something. Imagine you’re in a room with Him: His throne room, your home, your favorite place of rest, anywhere. Once you see yourself with Him, I want you to ask Him the question “Father God, what do you think of me?”

God is always waiting to give us a fresh word and pour His love and affection upon us. We simply need to be ready to receive.

Just a thought.
