Listen to God

10 03 2011

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” (Psalm 32:8)

Talking is easy. Listening is hard. But a conversation is a two way street. As with any friendship or relationship, the conversation can’t be one-sided. Both people must be involved. So why do we treat our relationship with God like a one-way street? God speaks to everyone differently, even if it is not audible doesn’t mean that He’s not there.


Listening to God is a discipline that we must all develop, and I will honestly say it’s one of the hardest things for me. I love to talk to God, but being still before Him, just waiting patiently is hard.


So this week, in the midst of busyness, running everywhere and doing everything, I will stop. Just to listen. And then the next day. I will do it again. Because God wants His turn too.


In His love,
