Friends, do you ever feel an inner “alarm” going off when you know you shouldn’t be doing something? As soon as you feel that uneasiness, you need to stop and evaluate what’s going on. Too often, we all override that feeling thinking we will sort it out later, but then we have to deal with things that God could have saved us from.
The time to respond is the time when you hear the alarm. You may be in the middle of a conversation and the alarm goes off. You know you’re supposed to walk away. Don’t ignore it. Or, you’re about to purchase something. You’re about to make some plans and you feel that uneasiness, that alarm. That’s not random. That’s God talking to you. Pull back and see what God is saying.
If you will learn to listen, God can keep you from trouble. He can keep you from danger. Don’t ignore it and make life more difficult; instead, quickly obey. Follow His leading. Don’t override the alarms so you can partake of the blessing, favour and protection that God has prepared for you.
Friends, today stop and act on the alarms, don’t just ignore them. By acting on the alarms you can save yourself from a huge amount of disappointment and pain in the future.
Enjoy a blessed day!
