Are You Listening?
Posted: March 22, 2017
Did you know that God is always speaking? It’s true!
Our God loves to speak to us, His children. Can you imagine having a child, but never speaking to them? That would be nearly impossible!
When your child is about to walk into trouble, are you silent? No! You warn them! If your child is struggling through a tough season, do you ignore them? No! You encourage them to continue pressing on, because eventually it will get better. As a parent, you are constantly speaking to your child, and God is no different! He speaks through Scripture, through the prompting of the Holy Spirit, and through others around us.
The question is, are you listening for God’s voice? Is your heart soft and open to hearing what He has to say even if it’s something you don’t want to hear?
Remember what it says:
“Today when you hear his voice,
don’t harden your hearts
as Israel did when they rebelled.”
- Hebrews 3:15 NLT
Lord, thank you that you are constantly speaking to us. Help my heart to be soft and open to hearing Your voice today, and help me to listen intently for Your direction. In Jesus’ name, amen.
