4 Ways to Get God's Attention



Expect Great & Mighty Things (Faith without Borders)

God is so pleased when we EXPECT Him to do great and mighty things. Just like in the song, “Oceans,” the prayer is for faith without borders. To have faith so deep and so wide that God takes notice. In Psalm 5:3 we read, "In the morning, O LORD, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will offer my prayer to You and eagerly watch.” We can be excited about life! Nothing is impossible with God. His Word says, "But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.” ~ Micah 7:7. One of my life scriptures is Ephesians 3:20. "God will do exceedingly, abundantly beyond what our minds can comprehend or imagine." Great expectations and Faith is crucial and you won’t be disappointed. All you need is faith the size of a mustard seed!

Pursue Intimacy With Your Heavenly Father

When someone pursues you like a friend or your husband before you started dating or your boyfriend, it make you feel special and loved. God feels the same way about you. He feels your love and adores spending time with you! You are His greatest love. Talk to Him throughout the Day. I pray in my quiet time which is very focused time. Time of telling Him exactly how you feel. The good, the bad and the ugly. God wants to hear it all. But I also pray in bed, around the house, and while driving my car. Chat with Him often. You will have His full attention.

Be Willing to Do What He Lays on Your Heart

Also in the song, Oceans, we hear the words, "Spirit Lead Me.” Being close and intimate with God allows us to have discernment and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit Guides us to do the work of the Father which is why we are on this planet. Many years ago, the Holy Spirit nudged me to do something and I was afraid. I had a friend who had been struggling with infertility. God told me to buy her a Mother’s Day Card. I was so nervous to do this but I obeyed. I was so chicken, I tucked it in her Bible when she wasn’t looking. On Monday she discovered she was indeed pregnant! She said to me, “How did you know?” It was her first Mother's Day after all! Jeremiah 1:12 tells us, "Then the LORD said to me, "You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.” Sometimes God asks us to do things that don’t make sense. But your obedience gets God’s attention and He gets the glory!!

Engage in Worship to Your Heavenly Father

Worship is many things. We worship God through songs. We worship God through our actions. Kindness gets God’s attention. Did you know that a grateful heart is also worship? I have had my Mustang for ten years now. The convertible top needs replacing. The left fender is crushed from when I got hit by a semi truck. But when I’m driving I thank God for my car. My home has been under construction for 2 years and is in disarray. But I thank God out loud for my home. God is pleased with gratitude and loves it when we worship Him that way. Bask in his presence. God loves you beyond compare.



"Then you will call upon Me and pray to Me,

and I will listen to you."~ Jeremiah 29:12
