How do we get our hearts from wanting to disobey to joyfully following God?
Confession – recognizing the Jesus is The Christ – the Son of the living God. This is the basis and foundation that all of Christianity hinges on. This confession gives perspective, hope, and peace.
Draw near – Prayer is a key tool to allow us to draw near to God. Recognizing our weakness makes prayer that much more powerful. There is no time or situation that warrants more or less prayer – we are always in a state of need and we have no control over any of it. We are weak and can come to God in everything with confidence, based on His promises, that He will hear us and give us what we need.
