Now, in these days, the time for believing in petty glory must cease. The time for sinning as if there were plenty more tomorrows for redemption has ended. All of the constant worrying and fretting over what other people are saying and thinking can no longer be a part of the daily routine. At the end of the day, there will be at least one person criticizing you for bothering to get out of bed and one criticizing you for staying in bed if you decide to stay. No choice you make will be without some little, petty critic whining in your ear. The time has come to listen for the voice of God.
If God says to stay, then stay. If God says get up and go, then go. It is that simple. There are no other factors to consider. But, you must understand that if you want to follow in this path, you can’t fall back into sin just for fun, just to let off steam just to take a break, etc. There is none of that, because that is exactly how and when you stop turning toward God and being able to hear his voice. From that moment forward, you hear only your voice and the voices of others echoing in your head until you finally pick one at random and decide to act on it, and this is never good.
