Have you had your Joy Juice today? When you decide to listen to God’s voice and apply His truth to your life, then you can get ready for a double serving of joy!
Most of us would say that we know it’s important to listen to God. But do we truly know how to listen? Do we always recognize His voice? When we do hear Him, are we determined to obey His leading….even when it’s in a direction very different than what we had planned for ourselves?
While it is imperative that a growing Christian listen to God, the most important goal is to become a spiritually mature person who rests in a close relationship with Him. A mature Christian recognizes God’s touch on every area of his/her life and though they know His love is constant and personal, they remain humble…not prideful. God loves all of His children; He does not play favorites. Unless we consider that EACH of us is His favorite!
One thing we can be sure of is that God is always listening; but it’s in His timing and in His way that He answers. Our aim should be to focus on developing a respectful relationship with God and be content to wait for His timing to deliver His messages to us.
God is always right on time! Saturate your heart with His joy and be content to accept His schedule.
