Hearing God

Having trouble hearing God?  Maybe we just need to be still.  "Be still and know that I am God."  (Psalm 46:10)  If we are never still and quiet before the Lord, how can we expect to hear from Him?  Elijah did not hear God in the great and powerful wind, the earthquake or the fire.  He heard Him in a gentle whisper. (1 Kings 19)

If we are always in a turmoil or busy, busy "doing," we may miss what God is saying to us.  If we spend quiet time (being still before the Lord), in His Word and in prayer, we will hear Him.

He speaks to us through His Word at our point of need.  "The word of God is alive and active." (Hebrews 4:12)  Try spending some time in His Word, be still and listen - you will hear Him.
