What Were The Words

8b And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

~Luke 8:8b

 Throughout the Bible, God spoke.  He spoke to Adam and Eve.  He spoke to Samuel.  Moses heard God speak in the burning bush.  David, a man after God’s own heart, heard God.  God spoke when John baptized Jesus.  God gave John His revelation.  And there were so many more that God spoke to.

God is still speaking to us today!  He speaks to each of us more than we realize.  But we get too busy, too occupied, and too distracted to hear Him many times.  We let the world come in, and we miss what God has to say to us.

God wants to have a conversation with you.  But a conversation involves both speaking and listening.  We can get good at speaking, but we don’t ever stop long enough to listen for God to respond.  That’s why we miss what God has to say to us.

So, what did God say to you today?  Did you hear Him?  Learn to slow down and listen.  God really wants to talk to you today, if you have the ears to hear.

 

What were the words that God said to you today?

What were the words that stopped you along your way?

What were the words about walking through a door?

What were the words that made you wait for more?

Did you hear God point you down the right road?

Did you hear God tell you to give Him your load?

Did you hear you’ve been going the wrong way?

Did you hear that it’s time to go and not to stay?

Was it a voice that you’ve heard many times before?

Was it a voice from the other side of that closed door?

Was it a voice that danced around in your head?

Was it a voice you wished you could ignore instead?

Can you trust in the words you heard God say?

Can you put away you and follow God today?

Can you understand the love God has for you?

Can you believe in what God wants you to do?

What were the words that God said to you today?

What were the words that stopped you along your way?

They were the promises of God that are still true.

They were the words of a Father who loves you.
