Staying in tune with God requires humility, obedience and sacrifice. In order to be dialed in with clarity this is received only through the love of Jesus. There are many other signals being produced that are there to lead us astray and the object is to filter the signals through the Word of God in order to see the Way. Sometimes the signals can be very deceiving and this is when it best to simply wait upon the Lord in order for Him to clear up the interference.
Often we experience inference due to sin, selfish desires or simply due to our human flesh but the closer we get to God the clearer the signal will become as we continue to dial in. The question is are we seeking to stay in tune or are we allowing the devil to disrupt the signal?
Here is some food for thought; How can I hear the music if I am not listening for the music? How can I hear God if I am not listening for God? It is easy to miss something if I am not looking for something and the question is, what are we looking and listening for? Last but not least, how can I recognize the voice if I do not know how to hear the voice or because I am too stuck on what I see due to forgetting how to believe?
Enjoy this song by Casting Crowns Voice of Truth and it is my prayer that we all stay in tune….
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me…John 10:27
