“Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah….” Do you ever feel like the adults on Charlie Brown when you are talking to someone? Especially your spouse or your children?
It drives me batty when I am trying to talk to my children or give them chores etc., and I feel like they aren’t listening to a word I say.
Or I’ll tell them something over and over, and they turn to me and say, “Huh?”
I wonder if that is how God feels when He is trying to tell us something or trying to get us to do something?
The Word says the He knows His sheep and His sheep know His voice. Sometimes it’s hard to hear that still, small voice, when we have so much going on in and around our lives. It seems as if God is inaudible or speaks another language entirely.
His living words are in the Holy Bible. He speaks thru His word, straight into our lives and hearts. Even when you can’t hear Him audibly, know that you can read His words of wisdom and guidance.
So the next time that you feel as if no one is “hearing” you, ask yourself if you are listening for the voice of Jesus.
Sometimes it seems His voice is so still and small, I can barely hear it. Other times, it is so loud and clear, it knocks me to the floor.
Recently: still and small. I began asking him to speak to me more. I felt lost without hearing from Him. All I could hear Him say was “Read my word…” So I did what he said and read more than I have typically. “Um, Lord, I still need more” was my reply.
He came back with silence.
God has been cutting out a LOT of things in my life the last few months. Today, I realized even more that needs to go. Immediately. No debating, waiting, negotiating. Just needs to leave. Now. Not bad stuff, but he needs my focus to be ALL on Him and no where else. He said, “It’s time.” So here I am.
Are you listening? Are you hearing what he says? If not, I challenge you to ask Him the who, what, when, where, and how of what it will take to spark the conversation back up!
