do you hear Him?

Psalm 29:4 NLT
The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic.

Do you hear Him?  God is always speaking.  But do we know that?  Have we experienced this?

What might be in the way of us hearing from God?  It could be our sin or our pride.  It might even be the fact that we are not listening.  You could even say that you just plain don't think God is speaking.

Fact: God is always speaking.  Another fact: we humans don't always listen.  Yet when we hear God and respond to God great things will happen.  As I said yesterday, our choices today will impact the results and blessings that tomorrow will bring our way.  Hearing from God may just change everything in our lives.

Another reason we might not be listening or hearing God is fear.  We are afraid that what God would say would be too hard to hear or too hard to do.  He might make us give up something.  When we get on our heart what God has on His heart ... when we want what God wants ... at that point we will see a big move of God in and through our lives.  Do we really want God to move?  

Are we asking Him to speak and then not listening?  Often that is more like this: we pray and then don't even look for an answer.

It is time for us to stop, look and listen to God.  He is speaking?  Do you hear Him?

Deuteronomy 13:4 NLT
Serve only the Lord your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him.

Father, help us to hear voice and respond to what you say.  May we understand that our choices today will change our tomorrows in good ways.  That means, let us be ready to be changed by you and help others change as well.  Thank you for being God and for loving us.  Now we stop or slow down and listen for your voice.  Thank you for speaking.  In Jesus' name we pray, Amen!
