God Doesn’t Speak to Me
One of the biggest excuses we have is that we somehow feel God doesn’t speak to us. This excuse shuts down our ability to hear from Him, trust Him and surrender to Him. All three things are integral when we are trying change our habits, lose weight, get healthy, transform and follow God’s plan for our lives.
When we don’t think we have any clear direction from God, we are relying on our own intellect. When we know what we should eat in order to maintain our health but instead violate our own boundaries, we are abdicating to our fleshly desires, which are driven by our emotions.
Romans 8:5-6 TPT tells us more about this. “Those who are motivated by the flesh only pursue what benefits themselves. But those who live by the impulses of the Holy Spirit are motivated to pursue spiritual realities. For the sense and reason of the flesh is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace.”
Only the leadership of the Holy Spirit can override our emotionally-driven will and give us the strength to say no and mean it. But if we believe God can’t or won’t speak to us, our ears will be closed to His voice. When that happens we are on our own. The Holy Spirit is a gentleman. He won’t speak to us unless we ask Him to and want His guidance.
