2 Minutes - SILENCE, STILLNESS AND CENTERING WITH GOD
21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.
Even when we surrender our lives to God, we find a battle going on inside our hearts and minds. On the one hand, we want to live and love like Jesus. On the other hand, we can’t help but react negatively when someone hurts us, neglects us, or threatens to take something from us.
The good news is that we have the power to turn up the volume of God’s voice by surrounding ourselves in Christian community and asking the Holy Spirit to remind us of God’s promises. We can turn our eyes and ears toward God in a small step of faith and obedience.
Every time we say “yes” to God we will get a little more sensitive to hearing him the next time. Our mind becomes a little more tuned in to God’s channel. On the other hand, when we say “no” we make ourselves a little less likely to hear him in the future. (GICTYT, p. 85)
How can you turn your eyes and ears toward God and turn up the volume of his voice?
