Dear Sister or Brother,
What are the things that are cutting short or completely out the time you should be spending with God? I have felt for the longest time distant from God. Thanks to the Holy Spirit being the incredible friend He is to me, He revealed that things like being on Instagram or Twitter all day consuming large amounts of information or fruitless content, watching YouTube and working all day, spending time worrying about tomorrow are all contributing factors.
In addition to that, the music that I listen to. There’s nothing wrong with listening to some good music I’m all for some Dvsn vibes all day. However, you need to listen to and read and consume that which will bring a hunger and thirst for more of God in your life, my fave Dvsn will unfortunately not do that for me. Therefore what is my mind fixated on.
“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”
But God revealed to me that it’s not just about not listening to certain music and what you shouldn’t do but more about ‘What are you doing to draw you closer to Jesus?’
1. Put on that worship music
2. Study the Word & Pray
3. Follow Godly Instagram pages, fill your feed with Godly content
4. Start talking about Jesus more to your friends and online followers
5. Obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit
