Welcome to the Transformed podcast.
Can you imagine going on a date with your beloved and all they do for the entire time you are away is talk! They never let you get a word in. They simply won’t be quiet! What would your response be to that?
The Lord wants a conversation with you. He wants the enjoyment of your company, as long as there is a give and take in the conversation. God isn’t into repeated repetition or wrote prayers. He wants to have a real conversation with you!
In today’s episode, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, Lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California leads us through the essence of a life of relationship and conversation with God as explained by Jesus in Matthew 6. As we study, we will discover that there are 5 prayer targets that our conversations with the Almighty are to focus upon, according the King Jesus.
So grab your Bible and let’s discover how to Go after the giver of life!
With that closing prayer, it is our sincere hope and prayer that you will review and return to Jesus’ 5 prayer targets each time you speak with God. Your focus promises to be rewarded by God’s goodness!
If you would like to explore how to enjoy a deeper life with God, one that God is pleased with, Dr. Smith has written a daily devotional book that will help you do just that!
In His Presence is a detailed look at walking with God through life’s ups and downs. Built around the premise that God welcomes you into His presence with joy and pleasure, In His Presence helps you see that the life of abundance can only be enjoyed when we take everything to the Lord and walk every day at His right hand.
You can order a copy of In His Presence from Amazon by clicking the link on the side panel of the Eagles In Leadership website.
Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.
And now, until next time, we are praying that you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!
