Speak to Me
He is always speaking, but are we listening. We live in a world today where every other person has some form of a listening device in our ears, whether it is headphones, air pods, it’s always something, all the time… And we then have the nerve to wonder why we are missing that still small voice of God. It’s called distractions! We are faced with so many distractions already today and technology just keep obliging us with more ways to keep us just where the enemy want us; distracted, hindered, stagnant and missing the smallest, yet loudest voice to any man or woman that is filled with the Spirit of God.
How do He speak to us? Through prayer, not just reading but studying the Word, through fasting and allowing ourselves to be taught through ministry. I say allowing, because many of us go today ready to dissect and not necessarily receive the Word that is going forth. We instead listen for something we think is wrong, waiting for the opportunity to pounce on the man of woman of God, instead asking God to allow you to discern what in the message is for you.
I started asking God to show me, me. I wanted to know why I was missing His voice and I realized it was because I was allowing myself to be distracted. God had to show me that the enemy had no power, except what I gave to him. So, I realized I had to press through some things. I had to stop giving my power away; I had to press through somethings because He never stopped talking to me, I just stopped listening. How can you obey if you are not listening? This reality had me feeling some type of way about my own self. You see, I wasn’t looking at anyone else and what they weren’t doing, He had me examining my own self. For His word states, “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” I do not want to be a person rejected by God.
My petition to all in this hour, no longer allow yourself to be distracted. Spend time with Him, so that you can rightfully discern His voice. He loves you and wants the best for you. He wants to lead, guide and direct you in all truths. He wants to make know to you, yes you, “what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory… But to receive, you have to hear, to hear we have to listen… Speak to me Lord, I’m listening.
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
