Would you know the truth if it hit you in the face?

listen, test, vet, obedient, commands, visionary, happenstanceIt seems like I know the truth but I choose to ignore it.  I fall short and find myself in a place I should not be.  It could be anything that takes me away from God.  I know that seeking God and His blessings on anything from pain to joy ,or just overall life experiences, can be where I am so fulfilled when I am within His will.  It seems whenever I do my own thing I always end up in a place that does not seem right overall.  What on earth is going on?

When a prophet or visionary gets up in your community and gives out a miracle-sign or wonder, and the miracle-sign or wonder that he gave out happens and he says, “Let’s follow other gods” (these are gods you know nothing about), “let’s worship them,” don’t pay any attention to what that prophet or visionary says. God, your God, is testing you to find out if you totally love him with everything you have in you. You are to follow only God, your God, hold him in deep reverence, keep his commandments, listen obediently to what he says, serve him—hold on to him for dear life!  Deuteronomy 13:1-4 (MSG)

Do you ever have something get in your life that would be considered misleading like a pastor telling you something you are not sure of, a visionary leading you, a miracle or wonder, a sign, a happenstance event, blessings, and/or just some pain?  Is credit given to something that is not God? Do you want God to vet you out so that you will love Him with everything you have in you?  Do you know it is not about you but about God?  Are you listening and being obedient to His commands?
