In Sync

Psalm 143:8 (NLT)
Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you.  Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you.

How?  How do we trust God to direct our path?  How does this trust actually work in day-to-day life?

My trust increases as I feel more connected to Him.  When I pay attention to my relationship with God, I see His hand in my life which results in increasing certainty that He is directing me.  Staying tuned in to God through prayer and scripture gives me an opportunity to hear a small voice in the form of a fleeting thought.  When I follow through on the thought, not always, but sometimes I see why God put the thought in my head and realize that God used me for His purpose.  The thrill of being used by God makes me more apt to follow the next small voice I hear.  And so trust increases. When I nurture my relationship, I feel in sync with Him and filled with the Holy Spirit.

Did you notice the first small bit of trust starts when I make myself available to God through prayer and scripture?  Intentional.  God-centered.  Connected.  Life gets busy and this doesn’t always happen.  But when it does my life is richer.

Make no mistake, He is guiding you – or trying to.  It is up to you to have eyes to see and ears to hear which way He wants you to go.  Be intentional in centering your life around God.
