Spiritual Fitness Challenge DAY 50

Day 50 - December 22nd


Here is a simple truth. GOD IS ALWAYS SPEAKING. IT IS JUST WE DO NOT ALWAYS LISTEN. In fact we often do not listen at all. In our prayer lives we can jump straight into to our a dialogue, a dragged out monologue to God. We often talk, but how often do we LISTEN.

Wait on God. Spend time listening to God. Do not speak. Be silent. Get past the point where you are distracted by thoughts and the noises around you to a place where you are clearly discerning the voice of God. This may take you 5, 10, 15, 30 minutes, an hour. You get the picture. The more practiced you are the more readily you will be able to discern the voice of God.

I have tried listening to God many times. There are occasions that it takes much longer. There are times when you will feel like you hear nothing. Allow God to speak to you in either and any case.
