God Thinking XXVI - Sensing God 5

"I hope you have established that God has a plan and prepares the way for those who love Him.  God draws you into what He has prepared for you.

Let’s look at one facet of the spiritual life that is activated in your life if you are in God’s plan.

1     You sense it.
Read this slowly and let each word sink deep into your inner man.
  • Your spirit, not your mind or body is always first to know everything.
  • You sense in your spirit what is right.
  • You sense in your spirit what is wrong.  When something is of God, your spirit agrees with the Spirit of God, that it is God.
Your spirit is the one true indicator.

Let me ask you, “do you really trust your body to always tell you the truth or to do what is right?

“Do you really trust your mind to always think the right thoughts or to make the right decision?

No way.  If you do, (hear me carefully, because this is going to hurt a little).
If we do let your body and your mind make all of your decisions, you are a carnal Christian.  Ouch.

Your mind and your flesh can easily be influenced to compromise what is best for you and keep you from entering in or remaining in God’s plan for your life.
