Have You Heard?

(Matthew 23:1) “Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples”

Have you heard from the Lord today? I realize that we do not expect God to speak to us in an audible voice but He will speak to us through His written Word if we are listening. When my wife and I have our morning devotions together I often pray, “Lord, please speak to us through your word.” I ask that fully believing that He is able, by His Holy Spirit to open up the Scripture to our understanding in a very real and personal way.

We would do well to join the Prophet Samuel and say to God, “speak Lord for Thy servant heareth.” (1 Samuel 3:9).  When Samuel spoke those words he then went and lay down and waited on God to speak to Him. We need not bother asking God to speak to us if we are not willing to patiently wait on Him to speak. And then be willing listen to what He has to say to us. Have you heard from God today? I hope you have; He has plenty to tell us.
