To stay tuned into God, well try this: I know you have experienced this before, well there is something you want to do, a thought comes to mind reminding you that your parents said for you not to do it or go someplace, then a louder thought says "go ahead do what you want do, your parents won't know, then you do it anyway. Get caught and you then suffer some bad consequences and you say to yourself, why didn't I do what my first thought told me? Now I am grounded, or being fussed at or even told I can't be trusted to do the right thing." guess what? The first thought that came to mind usually is softly spoken and generally spoken only once, ppl say that is the voice of reason, or my first mind. I call it the voice of God or His Holy Spirit. 1) it is ALWAYS RIGHT! 2) it is always soft and, 3) it rarely repeats itself The louder thought is me trying to talk myself out of doing the right thing because I WANT to do what I WANT to do! And then voice no. 3, it begins to give me all the reasons why I shouldn't obey which is the enemy showing you how to be selfish and disobedient in a sly way, telling you that they are wrong because they don't know what they are talking about etc. When you get caught then you feel regret. Study that softer first, or first thought. That to me is my God! So I began to talk to that voice until I could recognize it immediately because we know right from wrong and that small still voice is NEVER EVER WRONG! Why call it the voice of reason or your conscience? We don't argue with ourselves, free will is at play here. Either your going to do right or you're going to do wrong? Why not know that positive idea comes from God because i want to do what I want to do when I want to do it. We are inherently selfish as a people who wants to listen to something that will hinder our getting our way. If you tune in to that voice, have conversations with because it will answer you, that to me is staying in tune with God on a daily basis. Go ahead ask it how it feels pretty soon you can have a conversation without opening your mouth. Try it and let me know God just had me to stop by and give you some food to chew on. Lol God Bless you. Prophetess Maureen also, to hear this voice you will have to get still and in a quiet place so that you can understand what it says in reply to your questions. it loves to give you positive feedback it never tells you anything negative or that will hurt you or anyone else and it will begin to even give you scripture to read that will relate to whatever you think about. but first you must read scripture or the Bible for it to relate to it. phew I got it all in before the timer went off, praise God LOL GOD HAS A SENSE Of HUMOR! good night!
So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won?t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. (Galatians 5:16, 17 NLT)
You stay in tuned with God by reading the Bible on a daily basis. This would enable you to get to know God and the deeper spiritual things. Ephesians 4:14. Allowing God's words to guide you will be reflected in your way of life and personality. (Galatians 5:22) Walking in the truth is a constant application of the things learned and applied. Reading the Bible and applying what you learned; building yourself up spiritually through the interchange of association with those who have the same love and principle of application as you do. It is a challenge as Satan is the ruler of this system and is always looking for someone to devour.
Prayer is another mechanism one can use to keep themselve in God's love.
