My sister slipped on ice the other week. I injured myself working. A friend has residual pain from car accident injuries incurred last autumn.
But what’s really going on is: God wants us in tune to His voice and spiritually in shape.
“My sheep hear My voice” Jesus says in John 10:27.
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14.
Dear Heavenly Father, we repent of our hard-heartedness and spiritual deafness. We seek Your face, Your word O Lord. Your ways are higher and Your word is higher. Thank You for enclosing us in Your loving arms and cleansing us from all sin, and giving us discernment.
