Are You Listening?

Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.
Isaiah 30:21

The Bible says faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. If you want to increase your faith, it’s as easy as consuming yourself with the Word of God. God’s Word makes that kind of impact when you consume yourself in it.

When athletes prepare for a competition they must vigorously apply themself to the sport constantly getting better. The more practice and conditioning applied toward the event the better the athlete will perform. In a similar way, you’re strong when you’re absorbed in the Word of God.

God speaks through His Spirit, the Bible, and through special revelation. Revelation includes other believers, circumstances, or any way that God can speak to you. In Numbers 22:21-39, God used a donkey to speak to Balaam to get his attention. And we wonder sometimes what it will take to get our attention. God can use a rock if He wants to.

If you want to hear the audible voice of God simply speak the Word of God out loud. We need to hear the voice of God speaking to us. But we also need to practice the art of listening for the whisper of God. 

We are in such a rush that we tend to rush God as well. God does not work on our time scale. But God will do what needs to be done to get our attention. 

Is God trying to speak to you? Are you applying an effort to consume yourself in His presence?


Lord, use what ever You have to use to speak to my heart. I’m listening for Your voice. I am watching what You are doing. I desire to consume myself in Your Word.
