Are you listening?

Are you listening?

How do you listen to God's word?

Do you hear what is actually being said?

Do you pay attention to the instructions that are set before you in God's Word?

How are we supposed to hear God's word?

Solomon can best describe how we are to listen.

"My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh." Proverbs 4:20 - 22

There is life in His Word.

There is health in His Word.

When we attend to His Word, we are giving our undivided attention.

We are concentrating on what we just read.

We are also spending time in His Word, this is a must for all believers.

When we are told to "Incline thine ear", we are to think about what His Word is telling us.

We must drop all preconceived ideas of what other men have said and only listen to His voice.

We must humble ourselves before Him.

We must come before Him with a teachable attitude.

We must focus on Him and Him only.

Our eyes must be focused on what God says is truth.

Keep your eyes off your current circumstance, your current problem.

Keep them on God!

We need to keep His word in our heart.

We need to meditate upon His Word to Know His ways.

"Thy word have in my heart, so that I might not sin against thee." Psalm 119:11

"This book of the law shall not depart out of the mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night." Joshua 1:8

This is why we need to get His Word in our heart, as when trouble comes we can have the necessary means to fight it; the best way to fight back is with God's Word.

Let His Word permeate every last being, every inch of you.

Let God's power, His love and all that He has to offer you come into your heart.
