Have you considered the many ways people attempt
to get God's attention. Favorable attention that is.
Nothing escapes his notice. So in that sense, every
thing gets his attention. But we do not want his attention
in the sense of something that would "make him sick"
and want to puke. But we want his attention in the sense
that would make him feel favorably toward us.
Some things that people do in an attempt to get God's
attention, but his very word tells us would "backfire" on
Standing on the street corner praying loud long winded
prayers does not get his attention. In fact he does not
pay any attention to them.
Giving large sums of money to the work of God does not
bring us into favorable attention with God. We cannot buy
his favor with money.
Going through a set of rituals does not get his attention.
It might make you think you are doing something religious,
but it is a wast of your time.
Sitting in some goofy uncomfortable position and emptying
your mind so the Devil can put his thoughts in it does no good.
We could go on and on and on. But you get the point. What
we do does not necessarily get the attention we want from God.
What gets the attention of God?
He himself self said;
"But to this one I will look,
To him who is humble and contrite of spirit,
and who trembles at My word."
(Isaiah 66:2 NASB)
Not an overdose of "self esteem",
remorse or sorrow for wrongs,
a fearful respect for God''s word
the Holy Bible.
