Hearing God

Romans 8:5-6 For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit. For the outlook of the flesh is death, but the outlook of the Spirit is life and peace,

Many times we wonder why we don’t hear God.  Most of us have selective hearing.  We hear what we want.  We choose to not hear what might interfere with our own selfish desires.  Paul writes to us our outlook shapes how we live.  Hoe we live shapes what we hear.  If we are living for ourselves, for what we want and/or for success be the world’s standards we will hear what the world and it’s greed and self-center ness says.  If we live for God’s purpose and glory we will hear what He says to us.  All Christians walk in and out through these two realms. We can see where we are living by our hearing.  When we are not hearing God we must check our current desires.  When we put them in line we will hear God.  Our question is do we want to hear Him or go our own way.  The choice is ours.
