I believe in the power of being attentive and always staying alert.
All throughout the Word of God we see the amazing power God gives His people when they stay attentive and alert to Him.
In this moment of my life, God is teaching me the importance of being attentive to the work He is doing in my life and showing me that staying alert is something that is important in every area and aspect of my life as well!
Part of this work God is doing in my life is showing me that He has not given me the spirit of fear and timidity but that of Power, Love, and Self-Discipline and being attentive is crucial in maintaining His Spirit in us strong.
In One of my favorite Bible verses, 1 Corinthians 16:13-14, we see that being attentive and alert is crucial to our Spiritual walk.
“Be alert. Continue strong in the faith. Have courage, and be strong. Do everything in love.”
1 Corinthians 16:13-14:
Be alert. Those two words are powerful and at the very front of these verses. Why? because staying alert and being attentive keeps our minds continually focused on being the kind of person God has called us to be.
When I am attentive and alert in my faith, I am focusing all my strength in recognizing all the ways God is speaking to me and in return, I am obeying His voice in my life.
Being attentive and alert allows us to continue strong in the faith because we are continually waiting and seeking out God’s will and the more we respond the more we see God move, and in return, our faith grows and strengthens.
The more our faith strengthens, the more courage and strength we have to keep moving in the direction God is calling us towards.
And as God has given us the Spirit of Power, Love, and Self-Discipline, staying attentive and alert, even in love, helps us to recognize how to be the kind of people that God needs us to be.
So stay attentive and alert to all the ways God is speaking into your life because those who trust in Him will never be disappointed!
