Have you had your Joy Juice today? God will never force you to drink it, but it’s always there for you in huge servings!
God communicates with us, His children, in many forms. Our spiritual ears must be tuned and ready to hear. And our minds and hearts should be ready to obey. God can use many different ways to talk with us. Sometimes it’s dramatic ways; but often it’s when we open the pages of God’s Word to read, study and meditate. In our prayer time, as we open our hearts before the Lord, we should be careful to listen in addition to talking to Him.
The more we listen for God to speak, the more quickly we will learn to recognize His voice. When we hear His familiar voice speaking directly to our heart and mind, we will desire to be obedient because our love for Him. God’s goal is for us to be so closely connected to Him that we will pay attention whenever and wherever He speaks. Be listening for that “still small voice”. “God whispers” add a special touch of joy to each person who hears them.
Open you Bible expectantly; pray, believing that He hears you. Tune your heart and your spiritual ears to hear what He has to say. Then be committed to following His plan for your life.
As Romans 10:17 says:
“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” May we joyfully hear what God has to say and cheerfully obey.
