Job 32:8

"But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding."
Job 32:8

I like the idea that God blesses us with understanding, and inspires our spirits.  Just the idea of being able to tap into God's wisdom... wow.  It makes everything seem just a little bit more hopeful. :)  And I think that we can, though it takes practice and patience to get some consistent communication going.  We have to be free from distractions (internal and external), we have to be sincere and unwavering, and we have to believe that God is there and willing to bless us.  Sometimes even those basics are huge hurdles in our busy lives in the midst of a skeptical world.  Today, let's find some inner calm and tell God what we need help with.  And then let's pay close attention to how we are answered.  Whether it is a an extra dose of confidence, an idea, or being blessed to know what to say during a tricky situation... God is always there to help us through the things that are hard for us.  And the more we try it, the more it will become apparent that talking with God makes every day go better, and getting through life with God's help is so much better than trying to make it through alone.  Today, let's live the way we should, so that there are no impediments to connecting with God, and when we get that connection, let's work on strengthening it.
