“He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
We need eyes to see more clearly the Savior working in our lives and ears to hear His voice more deeply in our hearts. This marvelous blessing comes when we open our hearts and receive, truly receive, the Lord JESUS CHRIST, His purpose, teachings and His will into our lives as His repentant and redeemed followers. GOD does not and will not force Himself upon us. God does not force himself upon us. We must ourselves seize the kingdom, and with humility we must ourselves work at being a believer and follower of JESUS, but also never forget that it is all the gift of GOD. When we truly listen to the SPIRIT of GOD, we are graciously transformed in our convictions and actions. It means turning towards GOD in holiness and righteousness.
What thoughts or behaviors do I need to turn towards GOD?
Do we pray in the morning as if we were to die at night? -Do we thirst for more of the living GOD in our lives? Are we willing for the HOLY SPIRIT to help us pursue the things that matter most concerning our eternal destiny? -‘Let anyone with ears listen!’ What is JESUS saying to me in this time of meditation?
LORD GOD, make me a better listener. Empty me of noise and clutter, to hear what needs to be heard. Let me not be afraid of silence, because then you can speak to me. Help me oh HOLY SPIRIT and awaken in me a deep desire and sensitivity to
hear and heed Your voice. May my life and lifestyle remain yielded to You as You continue to make me, mold me, and transform me…all these I pray
in the most gracious Name of JESUS CHRIST, AMEN!
With Ears To Listen,
Pastor Wally & Sister Mattie
