How to Tune in to God

It’s easy to tune in to God. And if you tune in to him, you will hear God in your life. Give it a try if you’re not already tuned in.

Think turning that dial on the radio. There is a lot of static and stations you don’t want to hear. But when you tune in to that station you are looking for, and the reception is loud and clear, it’s music to your ears.

In order to hear God, you first have to take the time to find Him. Lucky for us that it’s not difficult because God is less than a heartbeat away—He made you and is in you. Simply commit to dial in to Him, first drowning out all the useless static surrounding you. Then search your heart just like you would turn the dial on your radio. If you truly want to hear Him you will. You will feel Him in you.

Sound way too fantastic and religious? That’s the way I felt not that long ago. But I never took the time to tune in to God—I didn’t even think that much about God. When I finally let God into my life—actually, he was always in my life; I just didn’t acknowledge Him—it was sweeter than any music I had ever heard.

Don’t get me wrong—I don’t have some angelic glow and walk 5 feet above everyone else. I screw up all the time and fall back on bad habits. But I know that God is always there and I simply tune out all the static of the world and take the time to LISTEN to Him. He never fails to help me get back on the right life path.

OK, enough with the concept—here is some practical advice on how to tune in to God. First, give God some time. Find some dedicated time and a quiet spot to hear God. If you don’t give Him the time, and can’t remove some of the background noise, how can you expect to hear God? Second, look inward to your heart. Search it as you would tune your radio looking for a station. You will hear God by feeling him. It’s a little hard to explain until you do it.

Finally, give this some time. If you have never tuned in to God, or haven’t done so in a while, it may take some time. There is a reason for that. Trust me. No, trust God.

GIve it a try today and enjoy the sweet, sweet music of God in your life!
