Focus on the Spirit

I definitely believe there are times God moves us and wants us to do something very specific. I don’t think we need to freak out and worry about “missed opportunities”, but God definitely nudges us at times to do things. If we miss it, He is so great that things still get done, you just may not be a part of it. So, how can we focus in on these moments when God moves in our heart and make sure we get to be a part of what God is doing around us?
It’s all about listening to God’s spirit. Sounds easy, but it’s not. So many things can distract us. Sin gets in the way. Distractions come up. Hectic lifestyles keep us from paying attention. Constant noise and mental stimulation keep us from silencing the world to listen. It’s not easy. However, when we make it a priority, when we study our scripture, and pray, and sabbath, and simply abide, we see God moving in ways we haven’t before, and not because he hasn’t been moving. It’s because we haven’t been listening. Take some time today to simply abide in God.
