A while back, I said that I would make a terrible psychic. Well, I’ve changed my mind. Turns out that being a psychic isn’t that difficult at all. How does one learn to be a psychic?
It’s really quite simple. Galatians 6:7-8 tells us how:
Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
If you want to predict the future, simply look at the things you are sowing to right now.
The biblical reality is (and I realize that this sounds very Law of Attraction-ish) that we are creating the future right now. In other words, the actions and deeds that we do today will have a very real effect upon us in the future. If I sow to the Spirit today, I will reap life from the Spirit in the future. If I sow to the flesh today, I will surely reap corruption in the future. It’s straightforward, profound, and an incredible truth to know.
Spiritual coldness isn’t the result of a single life-changing event. It’s the cumulative result of a thousand small, seemingly insignificant choices, like neglecting prayer, shunning fellowship, and ignoring the Word of God. True spiritual fire isn’t the result of one, over the top, mountaintop, spiritual high experience. It’s the beautiful accumulation of consistent time invested in the spiritual disciplines. Our spiritual lives are the result of many small actions piled on top of each other.
