God is permanently telling us which way to go to get the best results for ourselves.
Are you aware of this?
The problem is very few people listen. Even fewer know about this.
God is permanently speaking silently to us. If we hear his message and follow it, the result of our work will seem like a miracle.
Sadly, we don’t hear his voice because we don’t listen to him. We don’t know how he talks and how to listen to him.
Hence, we go our own way and get results that fall short of the best for us in God’s plan.
God speaks silently. He does not shout. He whispers in our ear, our mind, our heart and through our eyes.
To hear him, we must listen and listen well. If you don’t listen well, you will not discern God’s voice. The reason is there are many other voices; some booming so loudly they drown God’s voice. Some are just like God’s voice. That is the devil’s voice. But it can deceive you to think it’s God’s voice.
When you shut out all the booming noises around you, turn to God in prayer. Talk to him; meditate and listen. You will hear him.
When I talk of booming noises around, what am I referring to? I am referring to those earthly things that pull us away from God: money, women, men, ambition, position, property, greed, fear, worry etc. When we focus on these things they become a distraction and it becomes hard to hear the silent voice of God.
Hence, we must remove our minds and hearts from them and focus on God.
Do you know why some people work so hard but have no results to show? It’s simple. They focus on their work thinking working hard is all that matters and so do not give time to themselves to listen to God to get his directives concerning their work; and when they don’t get God’s directives, they follow their own, which will not be in line with what God has prescribed and so at the end of the day, after so much has been put in, the results are but a sorry sight.
You will be surprised to see around you some people who are of a low social class but who succeed with their children because they listen to God’s voice telling them how to bring up the children.
Dear friend, this is the greatest secret in the world. Listen to God’s voice as much as you can. He is always speaking to you. Take off time to listen to him and do exactly what he tells you.
Do you remember what Mary said to the people at the Marriage feast at Cana when they complained about the shortage of wine. She asked them to tell the Lord and do what he tells them. They did. You know the results. We should do same.
Listen to the silent voice of God and do what he tells you. You be amazed by the harvest you will reap.
