For those of you who read this blog weekly, I am sure that you remember me saying that God has been changing His way of communicating with me and that He is speaking more quietly. At the beginning I was not completely sure what He was actually meaning but now, after three weeks of experiencing this new spiritual technological development between God and my communication with God, I now realize that what was actually occurring was that God was training me to be more precise with my listening ear.
I went through multiple experiences of humiliation in the last three weeks where I realized my ego was blocking my ability to hear the intricate words of instruction that God was giving me on a day-to-day basis. A couple of times I received instructions so loud that the warning was like an air horn on a freight train piercing through the quiet night of thoughts in my brain. The event that God was working with me on seemed in my own mind almost insignificant. But of course I did not realize at that point the ramifications that would occur if I went and made the wrong decision instead of the right one.
Those ramifications could result in a journey that could have caused continuous pain through literal years of suffering because of a bad relationship. Those of you that have made wrong connections know how harmful they can be. So God was showing me that His instructions were so precise and quiet that they appeared to have no force of will in them. But these instructions required my complete submission to His perfect direction even though they appeared not to be forceful at all, they were undoubtedly laced with intense accuracy and blessed intentions.
There are three major decisions that every person naturally is going to make, and these have extreme ramifications in them. I have noticed many times that people will allow these decisions to be made without the guidance of God. For example, the decision of whom you are going to marry. Equally important is the decision of where you are going to live and what kind of job you are going to work at.
Each one of these decisions have extreme ramifications that are going to constantly torment you if they are wrong, or bless you mightily if they are right. The thing that is ridiculous is to make these decisions based on your fleshly desires. Things that are this important should only be made by God’s divine direction. I believe most of you already understand how important it is to hear the accurate word of God and His instructions concerning each one of these major directions that I have mentioned.
The main subject I really want to discuss in this blog regards the decisions that you and I often consider not to be that important ~ for instance, casual friendships, off-handed communications, or random events we attend. Many times we look at these with such a flippant statement such as, “That’s the way the cookie crumbles,” or, “The rain falls on the just and the unjust.” Oh, this can be a mistake because even through a casual Facebook internet connection you allow yourself to get hooked up with can be a viper snake that injects such venom into your relationships that they become a tare among the wheat that could destroy your crop and suddenly the good wheat that God has had you spend years to develop goes bad.
As we move into the beginning of the New Renaissance period in our history, it is important that you and I become more sensitive to the voice of God, even in the most casual connections. Whether God sets them up, or they are traps set by the enemy, you must discern the difference between those that will bless and those who will hurt you in the future. We must pray and be sensitive to hear the Master’s voice in every single moment of every single day.
