Learning to listen to God (2)

17 March 2024 ‘If you willingly obey me, the best…will be yours.’ Isaiah 1:19 CEV

People think they can’t hear from God, when in reality, there are things they already know He wants them to respond to, and so far they haven’t done it. The quicker you do whatever the Lord has already told you to do, the sooner He will reveal the next step to you. His promise is, ‘If you willingly obey me, the best…will be yours.’ Hearing from God is something you only develop with practice – especially if you’re a talker! That’s why He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God’ (Psalm 46:10 KJV). Our flesh is full of energy; we always want to be doing something, and it can be difficult for us to be still. Don’t just talk to God when you need something; spend time listening. He will open up many issues if you will just be still before Him. Perhaps you’re saying, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever heard God talk to me.’ Maybe that’s because you haven’t learned to listen! When you ask God for something, tune your ‘receiver’. Even if He doesn’t respond at that very moment, you can be confident that He will when the time is right. You might be doing some ordinary task when He decides to speak to you. And if you’ve honoured Him by learning to listen as you connect with Him, He’ll speak to you at exactly the right time. Perhaps you’ve spent a long time going your own way. If you have, don’t despair; it’s not too late to change direction. If you’re willing to obey God, He’ll guide you on the exciting journey of learning to hear from Him every day of your life.
