Ears to Hear God – Part 6

hearing from God pic“…today if you will hear His voice,
harden not your
heart…”
Hebrews 3:15

“Of whom we have many things to say,
and hard to be uttered, seeing
you are dull of hearing.
Hebrews 5:11

Over the last two weeks we’ve learned more about how to develop our spiritual hearing so we hear and discern what the Lord is saying. As we end 2013 and look in eager anticipation to 2014, I hear Him encouraging us to keep listening to His voice in this next year. I don’t want to miss anything He has to say. I want to be on the cutting edge and be in the front of the line when He speaks.

The challenge is ahead. You have a choice in either hearing God speak to you or ignoring Him and missing out on exciting things He has ahead. That’s one reason why we’ve spent these weeks helping you understand how important hearing from God is and how to grow in that area of your life. Don’t be as Israel was when they provoked the Lord because of the hardness of their hearts. Keep your heart open and willing to hear Him speak to you. He will. 

Continue to refine your hearing so it isn’t dull. Dull hearing doesn’t hear. It’s like holding a tuning fork to your ear but you don’t hear the pitch. It is much better to hear the correct pitch and note than to be off-key.

I encourage you as 2013 ends to move into greater dimensions of spiritual hearing. Use the tools we’ve shared. Practice with them. Get in the Word. Be willing to listen, and God will speak to you.

Exciting things are ahead in 2014, so let’s have ears that are sharpened to hear God’s voice and follow His direction. He will always lead us in victory, in love, in grace, and in power as we rely on Him.  Exciting things are ahead. Let’s move forward together.
