Seeing beyond the reality around us takes less effort than you think. It is actually a simple case of focus. It is like looking at two objects at different distances from you. The one you are not focusing on will always look blurry.
Teach me your way, O Lord,
that I may walk in your truth;
unite my heart to fear your name.
Yes, it’s true, we don’t know how to walk in the truth at all times, because our bodies are used to walk with the lies of this world. We are so conditioned to believe giving grace is a weakness and loving is a girly thing. Patience will make people step on you and goodness is just for people that prey on your kindness.
Let’s be honest, if we want to walk in the truth we will have to spend time in His presence. We need the Holy Spirit to teach us. Ask Him to teach you in His ways, and then make time to allow Him to do it.
