Rudderless? Don’t Be!

In Listening To Hear Him! I chided myself about being a chatter box. This is because, I am very good at talking. I can’t seem to keep my mouth closed when I am in the presence of God which I have come to know is always. He is ever constant with me. I praise the Lord, worship Him, question him, share my thoughts, and my secrets since He is all I’ve got! I am in a constant mood to talk. However, now is a time to listen!

What a dilemma it has been for me to sit down, keep quiet, to be still just for a little while, to rest in God’s embrace so He can speak to me. I need to hear Him! This I have already established and am so eager, however, staying still is not my strong suit.

Oh Lord help me! I want to hear you speak through the pages of your Word! I do! You know I do Lord! Please help me to calm my mind down, help me to put these countless thoughts flowing in my brain into compartment so I have room to hear.

Only you Oh Lord my Father, can calm my anxious thoughts, and comfort me with your joy. Psalms 94:19 -When anxiety was great withing me, your consolation brought me joy.

Psalms 141:3 Set a guard over my mouth, Lord;
    keep watch over the door of my lips.

I am also asking for grace to bridle my tongue as you speak Lord! Friends, now is not a time to speak aimlessly, for folly flows ceaselessly like a river from an unbridled tongue. Like a broken rudder in a ship, boat or aircraft, is anyone that lacks wisdom to bridle their tongue

When you called for a meeting Lord, wisdom demand that I come early and prepared to listen. You know I haven’t acted as such Lord, help me. Father I need you. Yes, I am trying, but I know I need more than to try. I must discipline myself to be still. I ask for help here Lord. Help me by your Holy Spirit in Jesus mighty name. Amen!.

All Mighty, All Knowing, All Sufficient, All Powerful Father of Glory! Thank you for your faithfulness, grace and mercy!

Shalom!

Listening To Hear Him!

I have been speaking to God for the longest time, and He has been listening to me. How cool is that you might say! Every word and thoughts He hears – Psalms 94:11 The Lord knows the thoughts of Man.

I sense now that God wants to speak to me. I guess it is God’s turn to speak . I should give Him a chance to speak. Stop being a chatter box I told myself! Okay Lord, I am listening I said, and God told me to delve into His Word! His Word is Jesus! The Jesus of The Bible!

In these last days, God speaks to us through His Son Jesus Christ. In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son. Hebrews 1:1–2

Jesus is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being – Hebrews 1:3. Jesus is The Word through which God speaks to you, to me, and to everyone else.

I have therefore resolved to study The Word. I am bound to hear His voice therein. Either in one verse, one chapter, or a whole book. God is bound to speak as He has bid me to listen. And I am bound to hear as I am eager to hear Him speak.

Father Lord, let me not hear strange voices. Let my ears be open only to your Word. Give me understanding that I might take hold of your Word. And please Father, let your Word profit me in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom!

You! Affirmed By God!

Lately, I have heard God speak to me through unlikely vessels. I say unlikely vessels because these people do not know me intimately, which makes their comment even more intriguing. God speaks words of correction and affirmation just like in the scriptures through unlikely vessels. When strangers affirms you, you will know it is God speaking to you what you needed to hear.

If you remember in the book of Numbers 22:30 a donkey spoke and asked its owner in human voice a question and the owner answered back. Balaam was not even surprised that an animal spoke. Read the full chapter of Numbers 22 for more insight. It confirms to me that God can speak through any vessel. You will do yourself a disservice not to listen.

Therefor, when you hear words of encouragement that speaks the mind of God for you, thank God for affirming you. You know the devil will never affirm you.

I hear the Lord say to you:

You have all that you will ever need

You are gifted with gifts for your world

You will be doing a disservice to God if you do not amplify that voice

You definitely have something in there

You have a story to tell to inspire and encourage many

You are a success, you must believe this

You are blessed and highly favored in many ways you may never know

You have a way with words, it touches so deep

You are unique

You are a pacesetter

You are anointed

You are ……

Take time to listen to what you hear when you study the scriptures.

Mind you it also tells you what you need to work on by the help of the Holy Spirit of course. The truth is that we CANNOT change ourselves apart from the Spirit of God. The Spirit transforms. I will elaborate on that soon. Right now be inspired, the Lord Himself affirms you!

Shalom!
