Many women are in spiritual hibernation. They have become lax in their Christian activities and have become a dead version of the real thing, “FAITH”, that is alive and active.”
There are ideas that disrupt us somewhere between our heads and our hearts. We need to filter our brains and remove the negative forces that creep their way in and eventually drag us into spiritual quietness. This happens “oh so subtly.”
Has it been a while since you’ve heard from God? If it has, how might that be resolved?
Confessing the challenges that turned us to negativity in the first place, is a good beginning. Confess it to God. Back up before you can go forward and identify what took place to bring upon the negative mindset.
We all endure challenges as Christ-followers. If we allow the challenges to turn us bitter or negative, the negative voices become louder than our faith and the enemy wins. You can overcome with Christ!
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen (Hebrews 11:1)
God knows the outcome of your challenges. He has you in His hands if you release control to Him. Allow the negative voices to be silenced through faith that God can do anything.
Without faith, it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6)
With God, All things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
Your spiritual life can be significant and have an impact on generations to come. There is no time for our negativity to give way to spiritual hibernation. People are watching you. You are to be an example. Confess your negative thought life and be spurred on to spiritual awakening by communication with God.
If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. ( John 1:9)
God wants to hear from you again. He wants your activity. He wants your joyful, obedient heart. He has plenty of positive truths and encouragement in His Word and around others who follow Him daily. Seek Him and you will find Him, have FAITH, and be spiritually renewed.
