67. Prayer is a Two-way Street

Everything we were ever created to be is wrapped up in Jesus. Finding out who we are in Christ is the first step toward discovering His purpose for us, because a healthy sense of self-worth gives us the confidence to step out.

The better we get to know Him personally, the more He can impart His will to us. Communing with God is essential to this process. Prayer is a two-way street—we speak and we listen.

If God has in fact prepared good works for us to walk in, wouldn’t He need to let us know what they are? Look at all those people in the Bible who God chose to use in one way or another. Not only did they hear from God, but they ultimately discerned what He was saying, even if they didn’t totally get it right away. The desire to obey God is the key to understanding Him.
