“… But hearing Him clearly? I think that might require my soul to acknowledge what all my rushing causes me to miss.” [Pg 37]
Last week we talked about hearing God ’s direction more clearly. We discovered God not only speaks directly to us, but He also guides us through the words of others, and can even use events to direct our path. Today we are talking about a different element of hearing God - the part that involves our ability to understand.
Do you remember the commercial slogan, “Can you hear me now?” We’ve all experienced the frustration of a poor internet connection that leaves us guessing what the other person has said. Likewise, when our connectivity with God goes in-and-out, we miss valuable information that might leave us guessing what God has said.
Life can be full of stuff that gobbles up our time and energy. That loss of connection can cause our understanding to become intermittent -- or even absent. Our devices are designed to work best when the connection is good. Our ability to hear God's leading is no different. When our connection is strong we can clearly hear the wisdom He has for all our questions and concerns.
How do we grow that connectivity - spend time connecting with our Father. Don't cause Him to ask: Can you hear me now?
"But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him." James 1:5
