While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, his spirit was greatly upset because he saw the city was full of idols.
Acts 17:16 NET
When you are walking with the Lord, and you desire to stay sensitive to the Holy Spirit, you will “see” and notice things that many don’t.
Paul was in Athens surrounded by idols. People passed by these idols everyday and never gave them a second thought. But Paul did, in his spirit, he was disturbed.
Are you walking with the Lord and in His Spirit where you are disturbed by the world’s lack of desire to worship and serve the One True God?
This happens when you spend time with the Lord. As you spend more time in spiritual and eternal things, you notice the stuff that is not for or even against God.
When it all boils down to it, He is the only thing that matters.
Have you adjusted your life to His? If not, you’ll just be another person passing idols on the street, oblivious to what God wants to do in you and through you.
Spend purposeful, consistent time with God and see what happens! You’ll start seeing things differently!
Father, help me to see this world the way You see it. Help me to see people the way You see them. Help me to know what is truly important and what is meaningless.
