Seek God For Yourself

Whenever anyone asks me how I can be so certain about who and what God really is, I am reminded of the story of the little boy who was out flying a kite. It was a fine day to go kite-flying, the wind was brisk, and large billowy clouds were blowing across the sky. The kite went up and up until it was entirely hidden by the clouds. “What are you doing?” a man asked the little boy. “I’m flying a kite,” he replied. “Flying a kite, are you?” the man said, “How can you be sure? You can’t see your kite.” “No,” said the little boy, “I can’t see it, but every little while I feel a tug, so I know for sure that it’s there!” Don’t take anyone else’s word for God. Find Him for yourself, and then you too will know by the wonderful, warm tug on your heartstring, that He is there, for sure.

We should seek God always. Billy Graham explains why.

Prayer for the day

Oh heavenly Father, as I reach out to You I feel the “tug” of Your Holy Spirit, which tells me of Your presence!

    Dear Lord, from whom all blessings flow. Most precious gifts dost Thou bestow; So truly faithful may I be as Thou art gracious unto me. Praise Lord! Amen,

  5. Rick Wilson says:

    We all know from past experiences that it is very difficult for any of us to admit that we are wrong, especially when it comes to our faith and beliefs. When I was growing up as a member of the Baptist Temple in Dayton, Ohio, often I would read my Bible, then go to Sunday school with many questions that could not be answered by the clergy there, which more often than not were just laymen with strong convictions.

  6. Viola says:

    Once you get self out of the way it is easy to know that God is real. The only way is to accept Jesus!

  7. Joe says:

    Thanks be to God.

  9. Gerry says:

    Invite God into your heart . Accept his Holy Son as your personal Lord and Saviour and you will have absolutely no doubt, that he is the real deal. Your only regret will be why you waited so long.
