You tend to be like who you hang around. Do you hang around God more than you hang around yourself or others? I don’t mean are you a monk that lives in a cave or a cloistered monastery. But do you meditate on His word day and night? Do you pray without ceasing? “But I can’t, I have to eat, sleep, work and have conversations and interactions with others”, you say. Right, but God is saying to let Him be your main companion; let Him be your mentor, your counsel, your guide. Talk to Him; consult with Him all day, every day. Start practicing being “aware” of His presence. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how you will change, slowly, subtly. Little by little, you stop acting like you and start acting like Him, thinking like Him, talking like Him. The end result is the prayer Jesus asked of the Father, “Lord, that they would have what we have; I in You and You in Me”. (John 17:21) God will answer that prayer for you, too, if you let Him. Endure the fire…it’s producing pure gold!
