When we make God the focus of our lives and depend solely on Him then this is an act of obedience that is called “surrender”. This act of obedience puts us in a blessed state of God’s guidance.
When we don’t surrender to God, we will still have a longing for guidance and will tend to look in other places like psychics or even trying to call upon the dead. This is no small thing. It is always destructive. Not only in your life but the lives of others around you, and it is certainly destructive in your personal relationship with God.
Hear the Lord your God and surrender to Him. Heed the warnings placed in His holy and true word. Come to an obedience of surrender and be blessed! ❤️

There are times I get confused about how I should feel or confused about a verse I read. I pray for God to give me wisdom over it. Then I start to notice devotionals about the topic. My daily verses will be similar to the topic. Different things will start to guide my thoughts on it and suddenly the light comes on. I grasp an understanding. Then I hear this voice, and I wish I could explain it better because I dont really hear it. It isnt like a thought in my head either. Its like a feeling. I feel God’s words in my heart say “Do you understand?” Or “Do you hear Me?”. Of course God knows if I understand or if I heard Him. I believe that is His way of letting me know that was Him. The understanding doesnt always bring about instant change but it does give me something to strive for. It gives me direction. Something to aim at. And one thing I have learned is: if you dont have aim…where are you going? In circles? Zig zagging to avoid the bullets of life? Where is your aim? Look to God. He is your first and most constant aim. Let Him guide you from there.
21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
