How many times do one check his/her Twitter or Facebook or any social media updates to stay up to date. If you compare that to the time you spend reading the Word, which one takes precedence? We must realize that we are spiritual being before we physical beings.
What one must realize is that all these feeds one of these beings. The more time you spend feeding your spiritual being with the Word, the more you grow and understand the spiritual realm thereby making sure that you leave in the supernatural. The supernatural means your spiritual being has power over the natural being.
If your spent more time with Worldly updates, you are growing your natural being and because your spiritual being is less fed, it has less power over the natural being. You leave a prayer-less life. When you pray less and read the Word less, the less chances of hearing from God. One thing the reading news is good at is getting you worried and when you are worried, your prayer life drops. I’m suggesting that we must be ignorant Christians but try to highlight. the impact.
When you call on God, he must be able to identify your voice and when he speak you must be able to hear that it’s him speaking. This can only happen when we spend a lot of time together. When God called on Samuel,the only voice Samuel associated with was the one of Eli.1 Samuel 3:4-5 Then the Lord called Samuel. Samuel answered, “Here I am. ” And he ran to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.” But Eli said, “I did not call; go back and lie down.” So he went and lay down. The bibles tells us that Samuel did not know the Lord yet because his word was not yet revealed to him.
From verse 1, we learn that Samuel was ministering to the Lord under Eli and that the Word was rare during those time. 1 Samuel 3:1 The boy Samuel ministered before the Lord under Eli. In those days the word of the Lord was rare; there were not many visions. If his word does not exist in your life, you cannot associate with his voice.
My prayer today is that may the Lord himself guide us on this issue and also believe that he has already answered my prayer by way of this post.
