hear from God

Psalm 66:16
NLT

Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he did for me.

 

Jeremiah 33:3
NASB

Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.'

 

It is time to listen.  But sometimes it is hard to hear.  Last week I reminded us of that verse we have all heard about "being still" and hearing from God.  Sometimes being still is the only way we can hear.

 

But there are some other ways to from God as well.  In a few minutes I will be in Atlanta for a conference, and my prayer the last few days has been that I will hear some things from God specifically.  Direction.  Leadership.  Courage.  Ideas.  Compassion and strength.  The list goes on.

 

You can pray this prayer too, but then you and I must start listening.  God is always speaking.  Fear God.  Respect God more than ever and His voice will get clearer and stronger.  Ask Him and listen for the things that you don't know.

 

Set my pride to the side.  Set my own agenda to the side.  Let God speak.  There is only one way that I can put that one, and I am desperate to hear from God.  I hope you are to.

 

Lets listen, learn and move with what God says.  I'm ready.  Listen up.

 

John 3:30
NLT

He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.

 

John 3:30
NASB

He must increase, but I must decrease.
