Over Spiritualizing

From the dawn of time, people have been drawn to the supernatural. It carries a certain fascination about it.  But, I must admit, I am very wary when a person tells me, God told them something several times within the first few minutes we meet.  Don’t get me wrong. I believe God does lead, guide and speak to people all the time. But, how can you have a discussion if that is the way someone processes everything that way?

We would do well to follow Paul’s example. “It seems to me” is a phrase he often used. It leaves room for the possibility that he may be wrong or the plan may need some adjusting. It indicates an openness and teachable spirit. It is true in prayer as well. Stay open and teachable. God can use that quality.
