5 Easy Ways to Follow God- A Word by Jeffrey Hardwick
What if God showed you easy ways to follow Him? Would you be willing to
pursue Him? I believe God wants to make life so much simpler for you. When
you understand His heart for you, you will WANT to follow God. It starts
with understanding WHY God wants to lead you in the first place. Lets take
a look at 5 easy ways to follow God.
1. Knowing Why God Wants You To Follow Him
If you are going to follow anyone’s leads, you need to know their motives.
. The key is to know God’s heart for you. God loves you so much and He
wants you to experience His best. But the only way you are going to fulfill
your destiny in life is to allow God to lead the way.
I believe there are easy ways to follow God, but you need to know His
reasons for you to pursue Him. You were created with a desire to KNOW God.
One way to know Him is to study WHO He is in the Scriptures. You will
discover that you will go after Him because He loves you, He provides for
you and He protects you. I encourage you to do an in depth study of the
Scriptures to know God’s heart so you can willingly follow His lead.
2. Listen For God’s Leading
God knows where you are going in life. In order for you to know where He
wants you to go, you MUST listen to His still small voice
on the inside of your heart. Notice I did NOT say in your head. I remember
a few months ago the Lord told me, “Get our of your head.”He
wanted me to focus on what He was saying to me in my heart.
Have you ever taken a close look at the word HEART?
The first four letters spell HEAR. But in the center of the word Heart is
EAR. Now you know where you need to listen to God so you can hear Him
leading you. The good news is that God created you to listen and hear His
voice. Jesus tells us in John 10:27,
“My sheep hear My voice, I know them and they Follow Me.” WHEN you chose
to listen, you WILL hear God.
3. Surrendering To God Is Easy When You Know How
I’m sure you are thinking that surrendering is very difficult to do. Have
you ever thought about how God originally designed you? He created you to trust Him with all your heart.

It really comes down to you making a choice. You make choices every day, so
this is nothing new to you. If you truly want to follow Him, then you
simply chose to surrender to God. That means God’s way and not your way
anymore. Remember God made you to be a willing, surrendered creation of His
and He will help you surrender all to Him when you ask Him.
4. Learning To Obey God
How can you follow God if you are not willing to obey.
Him? Again He knows where He is leading you, but it takes a willingness to
learn how to OBEY God. Honestly, its much better for you to obey God than
disobey Him. When you know His heart for you is only GOOD, then you will be
more willing to obey His leading and follow God.
I encourage you to study the Bible and find out what God is leading you to
do. He has so many practical life lessons you can learn from when you are
willing to obey Him. One of my favorite books in the Bible is the book of Proverbs.
This book has so much Wisdom in it and will answer a lot of your

God’s faithfulness is for every generation. The Lord is also trustworthy. He is the ONLY One

One evening the Lord spoke to me in my despair and what He said in that
moment brought me to tears. At the time I was really struggling to discover
my purpose in life. I was wavering and questioning Him so much. Then He
said this to me, “Jeffrey, I am ALL in.” I burst out in tears. Why
did that mean so much to me?
The Lord God Almighty, Our Creator was reassuring me of His commitment.
to me. He wasn’t going anywhere. He was 100% in and I will always remember
those heart piercing words that change my life forever. You must believe He
is 100% committed to you too.
Now that you know easy ways to follow God, why not pursue Him with all your
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ.

The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
