“Ring, Ring…Hello…Hello?” Are you there? Can you hear me?! How many times have you held a cell phone to your ear and asked, “Can you hear me? Then, you shift positions, move to a window, speak more loudly and ask, “can you hear me now?”
If you’re like me, you’ve done that too many times to count! In fact, so many of us have that experience that Verizon Wireless capitalized on our frustration by featuring actor Paul Marcarelli uttering those very words in their famous cell phone commercials.
It’s frustrating to know you aren’t being heard when you speak, isn’t it?
But, it is far more frustrating when you know someone can hear your voice, yet, they just aren’t listening. Our faith can become weak if we don’t really listen to God. We can hear His voice through His word, but we don’t always listen to what He is saying to us.
Today simply listen to God. Find one scripture and let it be Gods voice to you.
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
When I was going through a pretty stressful time because of the uncertainty of my lumpectomy, I constantly quoted Jesus words, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” That Scripture became God’s voice to me. I constantly heard it in my head and felt it in my heart. Just think about it, in order to hear someone, they must be close.
Allowing Scripture to be God’s voice will help you experience His nearness and hone your spiritual ears to listen to Him. Let the one verse you choose sink deeply in your heart and listen to what His Holy Spirit is telling you. Ask Him to speak to you through His Word or His people.
Pay attention to God’s voice to you.
Wow! Can you BELIEVE we are already on Day 11? More encouragement tomorrow.
