Listen and Wait

Listening requires being quiet
Waiting requires patience
Neither is easy but both are necessary for God to speak
and for us to hear.
Waiting is difficult but what do we miss when we don’t wait for the clear direction of the Lord?
What do we jump into that isn’t the correct path, just because we are impatient?

I know I have done things in the past that after I began, I knew that God wanted me to do something else but I jumped ahead.

Listen and Wait

What are you waiting for today?

Let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Hebrews 12:1

red barn 2

The choice is ours, whether we listen to God and His prompting, or if we jump ahead of the plan God has for you.

Wait patiently for the Lord to speak because He will speak.

But we have to wait for Him to speak and the Words need to connect with our hearts.

Our hearts connect to God through prayer, praise, solitude, love and the Word of the Bible.

Nothing can speak to us louder than the Lord if we are in-tune.

We must stop the noise and listen

and wait.

  1. It’s stopping all the noise that I struggle with at times. It’s His voice I want to hear and I really don’t want to run ahead of Him…although there are times I still try. I’m so glad He never gives up on us. Blessings. xoxoxo
