Why do we like to ignore warning signs?
The speed limit says 45 mph and we drive 70 mph.
The caution lights dance all around your date like fireflies and you STILL say yes to a second date.
We justify ignoring the signs that have been placed for our protection and when we get hurt we look around upset that nobody warned us.
We have the ability to discern when something is not quite right. So why is it that we ignore that little voice inside?
God gives us the warning signs and we’re uneasy about certain things, yet still we carry on.
Because if we’re honest with ourselves we’ve convinced ourselves that our way is better.
I know better.
“I can handle driving over the speed limit; the cops have better things to do than to pull me over.”
“I know he’s a little weird but a second date won’t hurt, maybe he was just having an off day.”
The following of our will and our plans exemplify a significant lack of trust and discernment.
If we’re going to become all God has created us to be, we’re going to need discernment to navigate through our purpose.
Will we be able to make the right decision when we receive an offer but we feel uneasy about it? Or will we be swayed by the number of zeros in that offer?
As we pursue our purpose we must pay attention to those feelings, intuitions and warning signs that God places in us and around us. The protection is not just for us but for the vision that’s inside us.
We’re valuable goods but we’re not the only thing that needs protecting; our purpose needs protecting so that it can reach to and connect with those who need it!
Don’t miss the warning signs.
Your life and purpose may count on it.
