Hearing is one of God's greatest gifts. It is such a social thing to be able to understand and interact in conversations. There is nothing worse for me than being in a restaurant with horrible acoustics (read "sound echoing off the walls like you're in a cavern underground"). I can't hear well in that situation, so I "smile and wave" as the conversation goes around around me.
My concern is that's how it is with most people Christians. They have had one supernatural event, their salvation, and they have never experienced God since that time. God has so much more for them. So much more for us. So much more for you.
We are continuing with Simple Faith as we move into another part of growing in our faith. Last time, we exhorted you to go to church. It's the easiest, but one of the most basic parts of the Simple Faith lifestyle. Find one you like, go there, and get involved. If you can't do this most basic of steps, everything else will be much harder if possible at all. So, don't skip it.
On a daily basis, God floods my heart with His voice daily. I experience His clear direction. He encourages me for the day. I find my daily purpose in Him. All that is really available? All that and more. How can you know His voice? Jesus told us that His sheep would hear His voice (See John 10:27).
Is His voice audible to you? Actually, it's a lot louder than that. I adore listening to God. It's why I get up early. And it's not even difficult. It's so simple children can do it. Are you ready to hear from God? I hope you will follow this simple way to hear from God on an everyday basis.
God speaks daily through His word. That means if you want to hear from Him daily, interact with His Word. We find His clear and resolute words in the Bible.
My next blog entry will be a simple plan to get you started. I can't wait to share it.
