What do I mean by employing God you ask? I know the word ’employ’ may sound offensive to some as it connotes getting a job. No, God is not looking for a job but He is keen to be involved in your life if you allow Him therefore the word employ is used. Trust me it’s not what you think. It all depends on your understanding of the word. Engage God or your Creator in all the affairs of your life. In order to employ or engage someone, you need to speak and listen to them. He is your creator and He longs to communicate with you. Many people are not aware of this fact and end up expecting a ‘go-between’ between them and their Creator. This has resulted in the rise of so many ‘Gurus’ who claim to have the closest relationship with a greater power, ‘you just come and listen to what we’ve received’ complex. This is a lazy approach to our spirituality.
DIY (do it yourself) it. Listen for yourself and receive directly from your creator. A relationship is expected and He has provided a perfect way for that. According to the great text ‘Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken (and still speaking) to us through his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things and through whom He created the world’. Hebrews 1:1. Precedents were outlined in the old covenant where we are told God communed with Abraham about His plans for his environment which enabled Abraham to ask for specific changes through intercession.
God is everywhere, omnipresent, and knows all things. He is in everyone who is prepared to accept Him into their lives. He is waiting for us to MAKE UP OUR MINDS as to His next assignment which He is dead-keen, anxious to manifest for us, and more than capable of doing so. That’s what pleases him. He can only do stuff for us if we ask or allow him to do so. Many times we have this notion that God will do….regardless. remember He gave you free will and will not interfere in your life without your permission. This is why many blame God and say ‘can’t He see’ the suffering in the world. Yes, He can but ask. Trust me some beggars love the begging world and would not leave it for anything. Some people love their state and will not change even if given the opportunity. Many do and they need to be asking correctly for a change of situation.
How do you engage your Creator?
- Ask and it shall be given.
- Knock and the door to your opportunities will be opened.
- Seek and you will find.
You may call these steps anything, some people call it praying, others call it meditating. Whatever it is called doesn’t matter. You are speaking to your Creator and He will respond. Give the Supreme Creator something to work on. It could be as simple as asking Him to open doors of opportunity for you and listen for response. When those doors of opportunity arise, don’t forget to be a blessing to someone. We are blessed to be a blessing. Whatever you need, ask, if the answer doesn’t show up straight away, thank Him for the answer! Believe you receive is the language of the spiritual world. Faith is the language of the spirit world.
Just ask for big things too! He is unlimited. Please ask, he is waiting to hear for you. Sometimes it is not necessary to ask for things but to just enjoy each other’s presence. Employ Him, engage Him. He wants a job too, that’s why He is there within you…Take a walk down your street. Get the feeling that you and He are all that you see. For you ARE! Look at every blade of grass or pebble or birds, just look at anything and feel His Presence in it, listen closely and hear Him saying to you “Hey dude, here I AM, If you believe in Me as I believe in you, then give me something to do. You are boss!
