Stop and Listen…God is Speaking

Posted on

…and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire;
and after the fire a still small voice.
1 King 19:12
1 King 19:12

God is shouting, but no one hears Him. God is speaking, but there are too many noises in our lives. We live in a society that allows us to have very little quiet time. We oftentimes surround ourselves with all types of noises, music, and events or entertainment that take our attention away from the Lord. We like it when the phone rings because it makes us feel important. We like going out with the guys and the gals and having a good time; we want to watch the television because we don’t want to miss anything. And so the TV monitors are blaring; stereos are blaring; and cell phones are going off. We are living in a high tech society and it’s driving us crazy because we just can’t stop long enough to listen. If we stop, we might miss something. It’s a subtle ploy of the enemy. Sometimes we need to shut down the noises of the world and we will hear the voice of God, crystal clear, saying to us, “You are my servant. This is what I’d have you to do.” Maybe its time to stop and hear what God wants us to do in our lives for Him.
