Thought of the Week

I’m often overwhelmed by the various noises in my life and I constantly struggle to hear what God might be saying to me.

So how do we hear God’s still small voice and know His will? I have realised that God is always speaking, I’m just normally too distracted and too busy to listen! I’m learning one way is to
turn the world down and turn God up through fasting. When we fast we show God that we are serious in desiring Him more than food, TV,
Facebook , etc.

At Northside Youth this year we are praying our youth develop a hunger and thirst for God just like David wrote.

“As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God” (Psalm 42:1).

Are you willing to sacrifice something for a period of time to develop your hunger and pursuit of God?
