Remember when God told me it was time to batten down the hatches?
When He spoke to me, I was sitting in Lori’s closet; actually, it’s more like a woman cave. You’ve heard of a man cave, right? Well, Lori’s got this amazing closet filled with all her things and there’s a little desk where you can sit. I find that it’s a wonderful, quiet place for me to talk to God and listen to His word.
You know, the only times I hear from God are when I’m sleeping or when I’m off by myself. That is why I’m building the chapel up on Prayer Mountain. I want a place that will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so people can go up there and pray. I want everyone to be able to hear God himself!
God wants to talk to all of us, but some people just don’t know how to listen. That’s why God uses the prophets, because some people out there still aren’t listening to Him. In the Bible, God spoke to fish and God spoke to donkeys. Don’t you think He is trying to speak to YOU, especially today?
The Lord is trying to give us warnings and instructions about these last days. But how can you hear Him when you’re not giving Him the time? How can you hear Him in noisy rooms, playing on the computer or doing some other thing? There’s so much noise out there that God’s Word and God’s Voice are being drowned out!
We can’t let that happen!
We need to hear from God! We need to hear what He is saying! We need to get ready! The alarms are sounding around us, and we need to make sure we know exactly what we need to do!
But how can you hear God if you’re not listening? Please let God speak to you!
I want you to find a quiet place where you can go and pray whenever you can. Say an extra prayer in the morning and at night. Dedicate a time every day where you can completely focus on God. Take a walk with Him! If you don’t have a place of prayer or a prayer time, it will be very difficult for you to hear Him!
Please don’t forget God’s Word! In order to Hear God you must listen to HIS WORD! When you’re reading the Bible, go ahead and read an extra verse. That might be the verse that speaks to you! Then just wait to see what happens!
I know and pray that God will speak to you! It may be through the Bible or in a dream or even through your pastor. Maybe He’ll find some other way to show you He is walking right there with you, but in order to hear Him you must, Must, MUST be listening!
If you haven’t started already, make this the year that God’s Word gets into your heart. We must make this the Year of the Bible. No matter how busy you are, you’re never too busy for God!
