LISTENING TO GOD SPEAK
WHEN GOD SPEAKS IT’S TIME TO LISTEN, BECAUSE GOD IS GOD ALL BY HIMSELF
WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES
From high in the skies God looks around, from where he sits, he overlooks all he has shaped into being, watching everything we do. His eyes are watching over all His Children and all that He has created; he waits patiently and listens to those who call out to him for help. Immersing yourself, your thoughts into scripture and developing an appreciation for which God is, you will soon discover that you’re at your best when listening to God (the Holy Spirit) speak, and here is what it says, click on this video clip, watch and listen:
God says, “I don’t think the way you think; the way you work isn’t the way I work. The words that come out of my mouth will not come back to me empty-handed; they’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them” (Isaiah 55:6-11). Are you listening to God Speak?
When you’re open and willing to change the way you think, you are open to receive insight into God. Paul penned it this way: Be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may demonstrate what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans:12:2).
Quiet down before God, humble yourself to pray, keep nothing back and release everything you’re seeking to God, he will do whatever needs to be done. Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder (11-12). Stay focused, stay centered, because without a doubt your blessings will come, remember God sees, hears and know every detail of our existence. Are you listening to him speaking?
Wait patiently for God, don’t allow your thoughts to wander or waver, open your heart in sincere reverence and faith. Know this, God is your Guardian, he guards you from every evil, he guards your very life. He guards you when you leave and when you return, he guards you now and always; he won’t let you stumble (Psalm 121:3-8).
When faced with life’s struggles, find a quiet place and put your confidence in God, open your ears and heart, you will find peace while listening to God speaking calm into your life, your situation. He knows our weary hearts far better than we do and he has promised to always be there, just call on him.
Kneel in worship and thank God for everything, for his love, faithfulness and his Holy Word that guides and direct each of us in so many ways, come boldly to the throne of Grace. Are you listening to God speaking?
