LISTEN TO HIS VOICE

 10 ” I AM the Lord your God,
    who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
    Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11 “But My people did not listen to My voice;
    Israel would have none of Me.
12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,
    to follow their own counsels.
13 O that My people would listen to Me,
    that Israel would walk in My ways!
14 I would soon subdue their enemies,
    and turn My hand against their foes.
15 Those who hate the Lord would cringe toward Him,
    and their fate would last forever.
16 I would feed you with the finest of the wheat,
    and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”

                             (Psalm 81: 10-16)

*********************************************

A different people, a time long past.

A relevant message, the time today.

The same God, then-now-forever.

Listen and Silent. The letters are the same to form both words: Harmony.

Noise and Clamor. The letters are not the same to form both words: Discord.

 Have we heard His Voice? Can we listen and be silent to hear Him, amid the noise and clamor of our time today?

How richly He would bless us if we had all of Him in our hearts,removing our stubborn selves to allow Him to fill us.

 In our time of noise and clamor, He is still the Lord our God. He will fill us fully with Him if we but “open our mouth wide.” What comes out of our mouth, then, will be His Voice, His Words. The world in our time needs us, His adopted sons and daughters, to speak and proclaim His Truth, not in noise and clamor above the world’s but in listening silence to know how to speak before those who have not really heard God’s Voice and allowed Him entrance into their hearts.

Our time is a decisive one for Christians to take a stand and speak God’s truth. In harmony, not discord, showing His truth in our words, our actions, and our lives, we can make a difference. And we must make a difference, for the “Israel” of our time does not “walk in {His} ways.” That difference will be beyond us for our children and their children.

Listen and be silent. Hear His Voice. Ask Him to help us know how to be the difference of change to reach stubborn hearts and unknowing hearts as we, also, pray for our own hearts to be right with Him.
