As easy as one, two, three


IT’S AS EASY AS ONE, TWO, THREE – PRAY, STUDY, LISTEN


If you want to see your life improve… if you feel overwhelmed... if things are going wrong... if you feel worthless, unloved, forgotten… there is a simple solution…


Turn to God. How? In three simple steps:


1. Pray


Prayer is your direct link to God. When you speak to him – he listens. He is not distracted. God is not multi-tasking. God is not thinking you are boring and wishing you would stop moaning. God is truly listening. How do we know this? God told us.


What does the Bible say?


“You will pray to him, and he will hear you and you will fulfil your vows.”

JOB 22:27


How to start?


Just a simple prayer… God please help me. God show me the way. God rescue me from…


Whatever you are suffering, whatever your heart desires, give it to God. God knows what we need, God knows what we want, but it is still important to pray to him. God’s love is amazing, and he is hurt when his children do not turn to him. God wants and knows what is best for each one of us. We cannot understand God, neither are we supposed to.


What does the Bible say?


“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”

ISAIAH 55:8-9


So, a simple pray is the way to start on the journey of making your life better. Let prayer become your refuge. Let prayer become your primary habit and watch your life improve. Keep a prayer dairy and a note of when God answers your prayer – Minu is posting regular updates of answered prayers – it really does work.


What else do you need to do?


2. Study the Bible


God will talk to you whenever you are ready. Pick up the Bible. Every word is from God. It is not a boring admonishment full of boring people. It is an amazing collection of God’s words, full of drama, prophesy and guidance. Want to know how to cope? Read the Bible. Want to know how to forgive? Read the Bible. Want to feel loved? Read the Bible. Want to know what to do next? Read the Bible. Want to be released from pain? Read the Bible.


What does the Bible say?


“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow: it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

HEBREWS 4:12


If you pray and study God’s word regularly, it will strengthen you ready for any battle you face in life.


What else does the Bible say?


“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”

PSALM 119:105


Regularly reading the Bible will show you the way. It is the key to uncovering God’s plan for your life.


How do you know what God is saying?


3. Listen


After you pray and after you study the Bible you need to take the time to listen for God’s direction.


How do you do this?


At the end of your prayers – pause. At the end of your Bible study – reflect. Let God speak. Give space for God. Stop your racing mind and just let God come in.


What does the Bible say?


“Be still and know that I am God”

PSALM 46:10
