Some call it their conscience.
Others say it is the voice of God inside us.
Some call it the “Christ within.”
Many describe it as “that voice inside me that tells me what to do — and what not to do.”
Have you heard it?
Do you listen — or do you ignore it?
Many people do listen — and have had tremendous success following that little voice.
From making money to picking the right mate to changing careers to all sorts of decisions, listening to your conscience, or to the God within you, is one of the most powerful keys to a happy and successful life.
Along with it come other related skills: intuition, having a feeling, having a hunch. All these things are part of the same aspect of the love God has for each of us. He indeed speaks to you — if you are willing to listen.
A note: have you noticed lately in this society, for some reason, how so few people actually do listen? Instead they are on transmit, constantly talking at people, instead of engaging in a true back and forth.
The most dangerous question you can ask these days is: “How are you?,” which, in the past, was a throw-away ice-breaker that didn’t require an answer other than “fine.”
But now for some reason people want to tell you their whole life story at the drop of a hat!
Anyway, back to listening: Wise people of faith know that, if you listen, God will help guide you through life. Knowing this is a joy because you are not alone! He is here looking after you and answering your prayers!
But the keys are: A) You have to believe; B) You have to ask; and C) You have to listen and then pay attention to the answer for it may not be what you expect or delivered how you expect it.
Do you really believe human beings, with the incredible bodies and minds and talents and skills that we have, were created by chance? By some random happenstance?
Or do you believe that we are indeed created in God’s image and have a divine purpose in life?
If you believe that, then ask yourself this: Would God create people, plop them down on the earth and abandon them? Or would he be available to help, to teach, and to guide? In Christianity, we believe that mankind went so astray that God had to dispatch his only son to teach people how to live properly. And even then some of them rejected these teachings and tortured and killed this son!
So, some believe in God and some do not.
But if you do, and if you ask, you “shall receive.”
And part of your “receiving” is the privilege of hearing that little voice advising, recommending and guiding.
Trust it. Believe in it. Listen to it.
