When attitudes get in the way

AttitudeWe all want to make spiritual progress.  We all want to grow in the things of God.  We all want to experience more of God.  Our spiritual lives are meant to take us from strength to strength and from glory to glory.

But sometimes things get in the way.  There are attitudes and dispositions that block us from going where God wants to take us.  We need to identify these attitudes or heart conditions and deal with them ruthlessly so that we can move on with God.
Some people spend their lives investigating what God is doing and never experiencing what He has for them.  I call it an attitude of investigation.  Perhaps that what the people of Israel had in the desert?

Exodus 20:18 All the people saw the lightning and the smoke billowing from the mountain, and heard the thunder and the long, frightening trumpet blast; and they stood at a distance, shaking with fear.
Exodus 20:21 As the people stood in the distance, Moses entered into the deep darkness where God was.

Some people have developed a way of life where they are content to watch what God is doing or perhaps scrutinize it.  When God intended us to be drawn to Himself.  As a result of this attitude people end up as ‘experts’ without experience, and miss what God has for them.
