  1. Listen to God and be open and honest with Him.

    1. Being open and honest with him is so hard for so many people. Even though we logically understand that he knows everything, we still like to hold on to stuff ourself rather than give control over to him. Love the open and honesty idea. It’s hard to listen if we won’t be open and honest.

  2. Don’t be afraid to try and disprove things. It goes hand in hand with not being afraid to ask questions. When I first starting researching Christianity, I was attempting to debunk it, prove the Bible wrong. But the more I read, the more I looked things up, the more archeological finds, the more I found myself immersed in the truth. So that’s the advice that helped me. Don’t be afraid to examine all the evidence.

    1. I love this Tawni. I’m currently teaching an “explore God” class at our church. You can check out their stuff on YouTube and it deals with all of this. I think asking the “ God questions” 100% makes our faith stronger. He isn’t afraid of our questions. Thanks for sharing.

  3. The best spiritual advice comes from God when He decides it is time for you to have it. It changes from person to person and day to day. But as others have said you must be willing to listen. Some examples Noah and Moses and Abraham.

  4. One of the greatest pieces of advice I’ve ever received (and consequently shared dozens of times now) has to do with marriage.
    “Marriage isn’t about finding the right person, but about being the right person.”

    1. I’ve shared that same advice to countless people as well. Every youth pastor should tell teenagers that phrase as often as possible. Thanks for sharing buddy.

  5. As a woman married for the second time, he was not measuring up to what I thought he should be. Having a talk with the pastor about the petty things bugging me he made the comment you can accept him as he is and pray about it or Live Your Life In conflict. I began to pray about the things bugging me and God began changing me. Those things became not so important in our married life. I love the fact that God changed my perspective rather than change him.

    1. Wow Janet. What great thoughts. It’s amazing that prayer doesn’t just ask God to move in our life. Sometimes it demands we take actions. Thank you for sharing. That was powerful to read.

  6. Some things in the Bible are hard to understand so I have to put my faith into practice. I just believe it until the Holy Spirit reveals it. I find passages I have read since I was a child and never understood, all of a sudden, seem so clear. I think, why didn’t I see this before. It takes faith and patience to grow and understand God’s Word.

    1. This is so true. This very thing happened to me this week as I was reading Solomon’s prayer of dedication for the temple. God revealed some awesome things to me that I never thought of before. Thanks for sharing.

  7. God is in control of all things Therefore…….I AM is love, and His love will never leave you. I AM is strength…then forever, in every difficulty and danger, you are sure of strength. I AM is Patience…then always there is one who will never tire, never Faint, and I AM is understanding…then always you will be understood. I know for a fact that if you are a child of God, He knows where you are and what you are going through at all times, and He has us covered for protection , strength, and has the answer for every trial, question, concern that we have in this life. But you have to ask Him.

  9. 10 years ago, when I was first saved and during a sermon not too long after that….our pastor said “Don’t ever believe anything just because I say it; check it all out for yourself.” So, I did, and that was how I even knew where to begin studying my then brand new Bible.

  10. Misadventures of Miss Tong November 8, 2017 — 11:32 am

    Trust! Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. There’s been times where I’ve felt so lost and out of control, the only thing I could do was trust that the Lord had everything working out perfectly in his hands. Trust God, trust life, and trust yourself. This was my mother’s favorite verse, and when hard times fell upon me, I understood why it was so powerful for her. Life can toss you around like a ship over troubled waters, but your spirit can always be strong and firm when in the hands of God.

  11. Mary’s advice to the disciples at the wedding at Cana: Do whatever He tells you to do. So, for me, it’s Follow Holy Spirit. Do whatever He says. That looks different for different people at times in varying places in their journey. For some, it’s to write a blog, for others it’s to teach kids, for others, it’s to go to the nations, and for others, it’s to play a guitar, or write a song. Just do whatever He says.
