For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what He has will be taken away from Him. Mark 4:25 NKJV
My son had sleep apnea when he was a baby. When he stopped breathing my wife ran to his bed. It did not matter where he was. She always seemed to know when he wasn’t breathing. I was clueless even though my hearing is so much better than hers.
If that boy made a sound she heard it. She could hear him breathing. She could discern the difference between a quiet child and a child in distress. She even woke up in the middle of the night and listened to him.
If hearing God’s voice is a priority you will hear His voice. God may not speak to you in a way you can hear with your ears. He will speak to you in a way you can discern with your heart.
If walking by faith in Jesus Christ is a priority you will walk by faith. As you walk in faith God will add to your faith. Soon you will be running towards Christ in faith. Others will follow you to the Lord!
Lightning does not flash from the sky nor does the ground does shake every time God speaks. Jesus is the God of the marvelous and the miraculous. Jesus is also the God of the mundane details and routine of everyday living.
Maybe you think God does not speak to you. Maybe you think He only speaks to Pastors, Priests and Theologians.
If you read your bible and the words jump off the page at you or you go to church and the Pastors message speaks directly to where you are in your life, God is speaking to you.
Jesus wants to encourage us. He does not speak only to a special group of Christians. The Lord speaks to all people who call out to Him out of a sincere desire to know Him.
If you pray and someone comes to mind that you should pray for the Lord is speaking to you.
If you love your wife the way Christ loves the Church even though you do not always feel like you are in love, if you honor your husband just as the Word of God says to honor him even though he may not always act honorably you are walking by faith!
If you have ears to hear, hear what the Lord has to say to you today!
