Ever found yourself going against your beliefs and convictions because of pressure and influence from other people. This is nothing new. There is a story in the Bible where Moses goes to spend time with God at Mount Sinai. There he receives specific words from God to share with the people (Exodus 31-32). However the people he left while he had this quiet time with God grew restless. In their restlessness they committed great sin by creating an idol for themselves. How do we stop derailing ourselves by being pressured by society, family, media and everything in between?
This extract is from Gordon MacDonald’s book ‘ordering your private world’. The answer to overcoming external pressure and noise is to get fine tuned into God. Spending time in His Word so that He can reveal his best for you.
Tired of being tired? Get in God.
