I'm not listening!
I wonder if God feels like that with us sometimes. He patiently and calmly asks us to “go.” Or to “do.’ And we wait. We hear His instructions but it’s not “convenient” for us so we put it off…and put it off. And at times, it takes something drastic to happen before we finally obey. But at that point, we’ve had to go through something or experience something just to see that He means business with us; then we are on our knees asking for forgiveness. It would be so much easier if we just LISTEN the first time and follow His instructions right when He gives them.
Don’t ignore God! Hear His voice and listen to His calling. Our lives will be so much more blessed by LISTENING to Him!
Proverbs 16:20-Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD.
Proverbs 8:33-Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it.
