Listening to our Intuition
In the early days of my relationship, when circumstances began to spin out of control, my
gut began to knot up. I knew that something was wrong and this was not how it should be.
I had a day when my insides felt as if they were all twisted in knots and I felt as if a battle was raging with in me. I didn’t recognize it at the time, but in hindsight realized there was a battle taking place within me. There was a spiritual battle occurring for my soul.
No matter how far I tried to run or work through the turmoil, I couldn’t move past it.
I prayed, but I didn’t pray the right kind of prayers. I told God what I wanted, instead of asking what He wanted. If I’d asked what God wanted and submitted to His will, I would have saved myself a lot of pain and heartache.
Instead, I told God I couldn’t live without this man and God said “Okay, but I’ll show you not everything is as it seems”. I endured a living hell for almost four years and then took another decade to completely work through the process of
healing that was needed.
I could have saved so much time and pain if I’d just listed to God and submitted to His will.
Galatians 5:17 tells us, “ For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are contrary the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that ye would.”
Spiritual warfare is a real thing, but when we feel that are insides are war with one another, we all need to remember to take the time to turn to God, ask for His help and seek His will.
God will protect and direct us, if we will allow Him to.
Does your gut tell you something isn’t right?
