Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/27/13

This week’s scripture is from Proverbs:

Lords prayer -- Tissot“Now therefore, listen to me, my children;
Pay attention to the words of my mouth:
Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways…”
 (Proverbs 7:24-25a)

We strive to follow the Lord each day for we are His children; we love the Lord for He sacrificed Himself for us that we might have salvation in His name, that we might be redeemed unto eternal life. We read and study the scriptures, and we pray. Yet the Lord calls upon us not to strive, but to listen. He does not call us to be busy, but to listen, to hear Him. Do we listen when we read His word? Do we only speak or do we listen when we pray?  To hear Him we must be still. Quiet yourself in His presence, and listen. Don’t follow the dictates of your heart but follow His. Lean not on your thoughts. Listen to Him.

May the Lord bless you as you take the time to listen to Him, to hear His heart for you.

    Thanks for the reminder to take time each day to just be quiet before the Lord. It is challenging to do in a world that is so busy and chaotic. However, without it, we cannot know what the Lord wants us to do and how He wants us to spend our time. Blessings to you in your quiet time today!
