Inclined To Hear God’s Voice

I just read a very powerful article. It made me really think about how we should never get so busy that we are unable to hear God’s voice. This is a dangerous and deadly trap for us. We need to always try to position ourselves to be in tuned to hear God speak clearly. 

My son give attention to my words, incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight, keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them and health to their whole body.

God speaks to us through the written word. This is where all of the hidden treasures are, not to mention getting to know Him in a more in depth way.  Spending that yada time alone with God through prayer, meditation, and worship puts you in tune with Him. Life and everything around us just brings lots of noise and commotion. It will easily blot out the father’s voice.

This scripture mentioned some key words. One is to give attention to. We must make the word of God valuable. Put it in the most  important category, as something we cannot live without. The second word is incline which really means turn aside and take interest. Just become captivated by who He is and learn of Him. Also to stretch yourself to be able to hear from Him ( put forth energy).  We will then hear His voice.

If we incline ourselves to hear His voice and keep His word in our heart we will receive two awesome benefits!!!! For they are LIFE to those who find them and HEALTH to our whole body!!! But wait there is one more benefit. He inclines His ear to us as well!!!! Every request and concern that goes up to Him, He is attentive and hears. He not only hears but answers and comes to our rescue. What a mighty and loving God we serve!! 

Lord forgive us for just scanning through your word at times and not being attentive to really hear what you desire to say to us. Help us to put your word in top priority above everything else in our life. We need your guidance, wisdom and knowledge and direction. We thank you for your precious gift of life and healing when we take heed to your word. In Jesus name I pray.

Have a Blessed & Balanced Day
