Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your ~ Jeremiah 29:12-13
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
~ John 10:27
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
~ Isaiah 30:21
In His Word, God promises us that when we seek Him we will find Him. He tells us that we can hear His voice. And He assures us that He will guide and direct us.
Lately, I have sensed the Lord nudging me to toss out my old routine. To change things up. To seek Him more than I seek to complete a series of tasks.
He wants to speak to me - personally, practically, and continually.
I need to hear Him.
Instead of completing my Bible study assignment, practicing my Scripture memory verses, and then praying (if I have any time left), I am starting my morning time with Him in prayer, ready to listen.
I close my eyes and sing to Him from my heart (if anyone else is awake I sing in my head)...
All who are thirsty
All who are weak
Come to the Fountain
Dip your heart in the Stream of Life
Let the pain and the sorrow
Be washed away
In the waves of His mercy
As deep cries out to deep (we sing)
Come, Lord Jesus, come (x3)
Holy Spirit, come (x3)
(lyrics by Brenton Brown & Glenn Robertson, also sung by Kutless)
I wait for the quiet to overtake my heart, for the sense of the nearness of His Presence and the filling of His Spirit...and then I ask, I listen, and I write...
How has He been speaking to you?
This post is part of a weekly Lent series, Without Question, where we take time each day to ask God the questions that are on our hearts and listen for His answers. Anyone is welcome to join us - for just one week or for the entire series.
To participate, simply write a blog post (or if you don't have a blog, leave a comment) about what God has been speaking to your heart. In your post, provide a link back to this post. If you wish, you can also insert the WQ graphic in your post. Then insert the URL for your Without Question blog post in the McLinky below.
