HOW TO TALK ABOUT GOD TO YOUR FRIENDS

Spread the love

“I will not die but live,  and will proclaim what the Lord has done.  The Lord has chastened me severely,  but he has not given me over to death.” (Psalm 118:17-18 NIV)

Tell others what He does for you daily.  Focus on His goodness in your life, talk about it to others. If you’re still living, you have a story to tell.  God did something for you.  Each day you wake up healthy gives you something to tell.  In this time of COVID19, good health is a sacred commodity.  Those healthy are grateful, those who aren’t, scared.  If you have a job with steady income, you have something to tell.  

I posted an update for friends on my husband and I’s shared Facebook page recently:

“Life is good! Each day we continue to thank God for our health and His provision, then pray for our nation.”

Two simple sentences tells God’s goodness in our lives.  You can do the same. Tell others what He does for you daily.  In the bleakest of circumstances, God is with you.  The health care workers who care for us are gifts from God.  The people God places around us are shards of light in the darkness.  His light shines through them to us.  Even in quarantine, people find ways to connect.  Zoom allows people to see their loved ones.  God gave us a way to stay connected, even when forced apart.  All of these things, God does daily for us.  If you want to talk about God, tell what He does for you daily.

If you want to talk about God, tell what He does for you daily.

To talk about God daily, you have to seek Him daily.  Prioritizing God in your life, prioritizes Him in your speech.  When I spend time with God in the morning, I can’t help but talk about Him in the afternoon.  Each day I read the scriptures, He speaks to me.  A verse will jump off the page, I’ll know it’s meant for me.  Typically, during the day, something happens that reminds me of the verse.  I have an opportunity to apply its truth in my daily life.  As a result, I always have something to tell about God.  But if I didn’t seek Him daily, I wouldn’t have as much to tell.

During COVID, my prayer for our nation is to seek God.  He is the only one who can calm our fears and bring peace to our hearts.  But in order for people to seek God, they need to hear about Him.  We need to talk about His activity in our lives.  When we do, people will want to know Him better.  They’ll want His strength and  peace in their lives.  All you have to do is tell what He did for you.

Question of the Day:

What has God done for you?
