Listening with spiritual ears and seeing with spiritual eyes. I’ve already said a couple times that this has been an assignment. Little did I know how much learning I needed to do with this. My challenge this morning during my devotions is how much do I trust what I hear when I hear from spiritual ears and see with spiritual eyes? This is a rather new thing for me and I find myself questioning rather than trusting. I want to test this rather than trust it. In my Experiencing God lesson I am being challenged to believe. If believing is used it wouldn’t be very long before I’d know I’m off track. So, why would I procrastinate about stepping into trusting? I don’t want to not trust.
Yesterday I felt God nudging me to step into an area where I questioned Him all day. I even wanted to do a fleece this morning. Then, God asked if the fleece was questioning His voice? Indeed it was. Today I’m going to step into trusting and see what develops. If God’s voice was truly the voice of the message I heard, I will know from what develops.
This is a big step for me in continuing this journey of mine. I pray that as I share these steps it is also a help for you to examine your own belief system. My past has always been clouded when it came to trusting. I want to be like Paul in Philippians 3:12-14 where he says: “…forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal….” In pressing on I will believe!
