Let's Listen

'I will listen (with expectancy) to what God the Lord will say, for He will speak peace to His people.' Psalms 85:8 We talked about God speaking Wednesday so today I want to stress listening.

When God speaks He gives us a deep sense of internal peace to confirm that the message  we are hearing is truly from Him. Even if He speaks to chastise us. His Spirit of Truth leaves a calming sense of comfort in our souls.

When satan speaks to us, he can't give us peace. When we try to solve things with our own reasoning, we can't get peace because "the mind of the flesh (which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit) is death. But the mind of the Holy Spirit is life and Peace now and forever.

 When you pray spend at least half of that time listening to God for He is really smart and He is a really interesting guy. I'm not nearly a good at this as I want to be. I am trying to be better each day. How are you doing? Do you wait for the peace before you make major decisions? do you hear His voice? Do you follow His instructions? Obedience is better than sacrifice.
