A Diet That Works – part 2
People spend a lot of money to get their physical bodies in shape. What about our spiritual bodies? In order to get into better spiritual shape, we need to:
#1 Solitude – Spend time alone to be with God.
#2 Silence – Remove noisy distractions to hear from God.
Find a quiet place away from noise to hear from God. Write your thoughts and impressions as God directs your heart. Silence can occur even in the midst of noise and distraction. But you must focus your attention on your soul. This could mean talking less or talking only when necessary.... and it could mean turning off the radio and the TV!
“Be silent before the Sovereign Lord...”
The Point Is: Turn off the noise all around you, and tune in to the voice of God!
Prayer: “Lord, show me how You want me to think and which way to go. Teach me Your ways and guide me with Your strong, gentle hand.”
