I have been spending time retreating into my Abba and reflecting. It is SO important that we learn how to shut out the distractions and turn off the constant barrage of noise, that wants to shape our thoughts and attitudes. We MUST let His word sink into us and penetrate every fiber of our being.
His word is nourishment to us and literally life to us…His word breathes life into His people. Are you hearing Him speak? Are you truly listening for His voice? His word comes to us from places we least expect and in ways we never though of. Creation itself cries out and He has left His mark in many, many places.
Many pass through this life NEVER seeing what He has plainly and clearly placed before mankind. So many are walking in spiritual blindness, thought they believe they see clearly. We can do such a thorough and complete job of deceiving and deluding ourselves, that there is no work for the adversary to do at all.
It is TRULY time to listen…in fact it is WAY past time to listen. Who will withstand the refining fire?
2 Peter 1:19-21
19 And we have the prophetic word made more certain, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture came to be of one’s own interpretation, 21 for prophecy never came by the desire of man, but men of Elohim spoke, being moved by the Set-apart Spirit.
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
