  • Ask God to search your heart and reveal to you any negative responses toward Him in your life. It may be apathy (i.e., simply not caring about God’s priorities) in a certain area, or being angry toward God for a circumstance you don’t understand. Ask forgiveness for these attitudes and allow God to replace the negative with godly responses that honor Him.
