Open to Hear

Do you desire hearing God , but unsure if HE is speaking? Do you desire greater, stronger faith? I certainly do on numerous occasions.

More than once I wished God would shoot an e-mail my way, drop a short note to me, or give a phone call.

Several years ago I asked him if he would send an e-mail if I were to attend an event conflicting with another item on the calendar. Within an hour, I received a personal e-mail from the host of the event expressing their desire of my attendance. Coincidence???

A couple of weeks ago two conflicting events arose on the calendar. Both opportunities were exciting with tremendous upside potential existing with each. I once again had one of "AH HA" moments: "Why don't I pray?" Eight minutes later the phone rang, somebody else was able to take care of one of the conflicting events for me - I had asked no one.

Obviously, we do not always receive e-mails or phone calls at all or certainly that quickly. We do not always know if God IS speaking to us.

How do we resond in these situations? Open the Bible! The Bible IS God's purely spoken word. Jesus is "the word made flesh." When we read the Bible, God IS speaking to us, just as he did the prophets in milleniums past. God says, "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."

Reading scripture, the pure word of God, strengthens and deepens our Faith as we hear the God's Word.

Next time you desire hearing God's voice, Open Scripture - Read the Book. Recognize God's action in your life when you DO receive e-mails and phone calls answering your prayers.

See Christ, Believe Christ, Achieve with Christ!
