Listen To Him
Have you ever had that moment where you said to yourself, “something told me…?” Well, you are not alone. I would dare to say that most of us had that experience, the acknowledgement of an inner sense, or intuition some would say, that instructed us to perform in a specific manner. An instruction we either obeyed and received favorable results or an instruction we disobeyed and suffered the negative consequences. Which side of the coin did you land on?
My hope in sharing these words is for you to land on the favorable side going forward. I only know one true way to direct you towards achieving this goal, transitioning you from listening to your own inner sense or intuition mentality to empowering you through listening to Him.
“After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James, and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus. Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him” – Matthew 17:1-5 (NIV)!
Although we do not have Jesus physically walking the earth with us as we go about our day-to-day activities, we do have a unique guide offered through Jesus. “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. He will bring me glory by telling you whatever he receives from me”- John 16:13-14 (NLT). So, if you want to move beyond the something told me to a more certain assurance, I offer you Jesus. He will give you the essential gift of salvation along with the much-needed guidance of the Holy Spirit to assist you in being successfully in everyday life and minimizing the negatives consequences resulting from disobedient behavior.
