Are you listening?
The sentence Jesus spoke most often was, “He who has ears, let him hear.” He said it 7 different times in different situations in the Gospels. In the Revelation, He says it 7 more times. Each time I read it I think of Jesus taking my chin and saying ‘listen to Me’!
My mom used to do that and it meant to listen and look at me. It meant this is important and I want you to hear exactly what I’m saying. Jesus was (is) doing the very same thing.
How do we do that? How do we hear His voice amidst the noise all around us?
Henry Blackaby, in his study, Experiencing God, gives us 5 easy to remember ways to tune in to his voice. We can hear Him through His Word, prayer, worship, other Christians, and in the world around us through nature and all of life’s situations.
We have to purposely listen for Him in everything we see, hear, and experience. We must focus totally on Him. He is speaking right now. Listen!
Abba, Father, open my ears, eyes, and mind to the sound of Your voice. I am listening!
