To get to the stage of one’s relationship with God, that we obey God rather than men and religion takes time and trusting our heart.
God speaks to us through our heart, sometimes we like to use our head- following our head is using logic, but because something seems right, does not mean that it is the right thing to do.
As humans, we are also sometimes sentimental in our actions and like to follow the traditions of men, but when walking with God, His direction supersedes that of others. We have to spend time with God to know His heart in any situation.
We must seek the heart of God in any matter, and then we obey and follow the prompting we are receiving.
The Bible says we as Christians have the mind of Christ 2 Corinthians 2:16, but this is not automatic, time in God’s presence is required consistently, to have the mind of Christ.
Never make the mistake and think that all acts of religion are of God, most of the actions are not, it takes maturing with God to know what’s of Him and what’s not.
We must always wait to hear clearly from God, and not rush into situations due to the coercive acts of others.
From my experience and walk with God, I can honestly say God is all we need, not man nor religion.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s beautiful to fellowship with fellow Christians, but our 1 to 1 walk with God- via the Holy Spirit should always and must be our priority.
In God whom I serve & stand, God, Bless you Children of God.
Until next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
