Love you all, praying for you!
God reminded me of something recently. Are you listening? Proverbs 8:6 – Listen for I have worthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right. As so often is the case, God’s truth has both surface and deeper meaning. In Chapter 8, wisdom is speaking. Wisdom comes from God, it comes from His mouth. The Spirit of Wisdom, with God at the beginning, is the Spirit of God. Wisdom speaks – are you listening? For me I find I listen far better, when I set my mind to listen. When I remind myself – to ‘look to listen.’ God is always speaking – even His creation is ever-speaking the praises of the Almighty. Praying today that you will look to listen. That it will be on your mind – to hear what God will say to you. How does wisdom speak? 1) Through the Word – not only the book of wisdom, the book of Proverbs, but the entire Word of God is His wisdom for you. Praying that PRISM will be a huge part of your day – that you will keep coming back to it. Walk in the Word, and you will walk in wisdom. And wisdom will establish you, it will protect you, and it will give you joy, and your Heavenly Father joy – to see you walking in it. 2) Through the Holy Spirit in your Spirit. Do you ever ask the Holy Spirit during the day – if He wants to say something? If He is trying to tell you something? If you’ve missed anything? I Samuel 3:10...“Speak Lord, for your servant hears you.” What Samuel did, will fully bless you as well. Let Him know, you’re still listening.. that anything He says, you will do it! Ask Him to help you hear to His voice, and do exactly, completely and quickly, what He says. Did you do PiVAT before dinner last night? It will change your life. It’s listening practice. If you didn’t, just take 5 minutes and do it right now! Don’t let this opportunity slip away. And be sure you do PiVAT before dinner tonight. It’s the key to walking in the goodness and the fullness that He has for you. Don’t miss your Daily Call! It’s listening practice. You get to hear what God speaks to another obeyer! Often it will confirm what He has spoken to you, and your testimony that you overcome with - will be in your own ears. You will even hear yourself again speak what God told you. 3) God speaks through Godly counselors – Proverbs 15:22 - Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisors – they succeed. Whose Counsel will you seek today? Ask God, and He will tell you. If you don’t need anything specific, ask a friend who is an obeyer (they give the best counsel) if they see anything that you are missing, if there is anything that the Holy Spirit would have them share with you. Actively seek out listening opportunities. 4) Unexpected sources - Sometimes God speaks through things, people or ways you would not expect; Nebuchadnezzars, Caiaphases, even donkey’s.
If you look to listen, you will notice the different ways God is speaking to you, instructing you, confirming His truth, and direction, and His goodness to you! Praying that you will look to listen today. God has worthy things to say - to you!. Praying that you will seek him, humble yourself, that you will see others as more important than you. Praying that you set your heart to listen, and practice listening today to others. If nothing else, it will help you hear their heart so you can love people. And It will grow your discernment if you ask the Holy Spirit to distinguish it. You don’t know where wisdom will speak. Learn to listen. Wisdom speaks, but also, wisdom listens. The wise listen and add to their learning! Praying that you will look to listen - to His Word, the Holy Spirit, Seeking Godly counsel and any way that He speaks. He loves you! He has worthy things to say. Things that will establish your thoughts and your actions in the Good that He has for you.
