THE WORD FOR TODAY
Psalm 79-81 (Click to read Today’s Word)
Psalm 81:13 13 “Oh, that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways!
Some years ago I developed…overnight…a terrible hearing problem. It was so bad that I couldn’t even hear myself talking. I preached a sermon without knowing the volume level of my voice. Not being able listen effectively was miserable.
God declared through the Psalmist, “Oh, that My people would listen to Me…that Israel would walk in My ways.” Biblical history reveals that Israel had a terrible hearing problem. They consistently walked against the will of God for their life.
We can show that we LISTEN to God as we consistently live out the truth of God’s Word. We show what we believe by how we live for HIM.
We can show that we LISTEN to God as we love God and each other as HE commanded us.
We can show that we LISTEN to God as we lean on God in every circumstance of life. We lean on HIM when we cast our burdens upon the LORD!!!
LIVE…LOVE…LEAN…all show that we listen to HIM!!!
Father, speak to my heart this day. May my life show that I listen to You. I will follow You this day …In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
