And falling to the ground he heard a voice saying to him,
“Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?”
And he said, “Who are you, Lord?”
And he said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.”
I want to hear the Lord’s voice like Paul did. In red letters. Words suited exactly to my situation.
We’re listening, God.
But I hear no sounds from Him. I never have.
Don’t rule out that it could happen. But don’t count on it either. Spend your energy instead listening to His written words.
It takes more work; it’s not a passive activity.
Amidst other noises, you have to actively tune in to His frequency.
Reach for The Book.
Eat the words.
His Words vibrate the loudest when we are passionately quiet to hear them.
You will seek me and find me,
when you seek me with all your heart.
Strive to listen outside of yourself so you can hang on His every word. To be changed, be attentive.
Hear with your eyes and ears.
Listen with your heart and soul.
