Are You Listening?

NOTE: Enjoy this guest post from my husband and fellow Pastor, Greg Bishop.

Christian Daily BlogThe scripture says in Matthew 11:15, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." Why do we sometimes feel that we never hear from God?

Let's just explore this question for a minute... Could it be that we're just too busy?

Could it be that we get so caught up in the daily grind that we don't take time out to give God a chance to reach us?

Are we so tired at the end of the day that we have forgotten who gave us this day?

At one time or another I believe we're all guilty of this. How many times have we waited until bedtime, pulled the covers down, crawled in, covered up and started our prayer, "Lord thank you for keeping me today... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ" Then we're not aware of anything until morning.

Listen, God is speaking.

Give Him the best part of your day. Make an earnest effort to talk to the Lord as soon as your eyes open. And then before you start your busy day, go to Him in prayer, speaking what's on your mind and allowing Him to talk to you.

You'll be amazed, if you keep this routine up, what a change you will see, or should I say hear, in the way God makes His presence known to you.

I challenge you to give God your most alert time, whatever time of the day that might be, then listen. He will speak to you through His word and His people and countless other sources. Sometimes our spirit hears a lot better than our physical ears do. But we must not ignore the fact that God gave us our physical ears to hear with. We are affected by what those amazing ears hear.
