It’s like this; you can try to live the perfect life and something somewhere eventually will trip you up. Not only that, it gets worse – you try to have an absolutely rocking relationship with God, you’re going to turn it around, you’ve thought about it, had a chat with God about it, you commit to it, and then all of a sudden, you end up doing all those things you decided you weren’t going to do any more – and then, you can’t hear what God’s saying – his lips are moving, but all you’re getting is white noise.
I hate that.
Unfortunately it happens to me quite often. I’m very much a ‘head’ Christian, I decide to do it, and I go all out for it. Yes I pray about stuff, and get divine approval, but it’s very much a case of ‘If you want something done, do it yourself…’ I’ll crack on with it, I won’t wait for fluffy feelings or any of that stuff. And actually, that’s where it all falls apart.
You see, we’re all equipped with a Velcro suit.
Just like this:
And on this suit are millions of little hooky things – they’re sin hooks, and when you do anything you shouldn’t, or don’t do something you should, then little bits of sin get stuck on the hooks, and then you end up being covered in the stuff. Not only do you then look like a complete idiot, but also, you have a right job on squeezing through that itty-bitty tunnel that gets you directly into God’s presence, and when you don’t get into God’s company easily, well you know how it is, it all goes wrong from there.
So I hope that’s that cleared up. You’re wearing a suit with hooks on. More than likely there’s stuff clogging up the hooks. If you want to be an intercessor and therefore be in and out of God’s abode at all times of the day and night, then you need to keep an eye on things. It’s all about the suit.
