LISTEN TO HEAR FROM GOD
It is so important that we take time to be still in order to listen to God. God does speak. The question that comes to our mind is do we listen. Oh, I know that there are those who say, as a result of their own desires that “the Lord spoke to me.” What they are doing is using that for their own advantage. Yet, we can never forget that God gives us direction, discernment and guidance on our path. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God speaks, because He has spoken to me on more than one occasion. He called me to preach. That was His voice, not mine. God does not just call us to preach and serve, but He calls us in many ways. We must listen carefully to His voice. Today’s devotion, Psalm 25:12, speaks of the voice of God.
“Who are those who fear the Lord? He will show them the path they should choose.”
Throughout this psalm, the psalmist calls for the people to remember the Lord’s love and tender mercies. He is aware of God’s magnificent power and of those who turn to God for strength. Seeking the Lord is for those who fear Him. The psalmist is confident that the Lord will guide Him and the paths of His people. Those who revere Him and listen will be guided in the way they should go. Today, it is my fervent prayer that you not only speak to God, but that you listen and then, follow His instructions
