Just as a radio station comes in clearly when you tune to the proper channel, we have to train our ears to hear God’s truth above the noise of the world.
Don’t be like those who “grumbled in their tents; they did not listen to the voice of the Lord.” ~ Psalm 106:25 (NASB)
Don’t be like those who refuse to listen. “’And just as He called and they would not listen, so they called and I would not listen,’ says the Lord of hosts.” ~ Zechariah 7:13 (NASB)
Don’t be stubborn and not pay attention. “But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward.” ~ Jeremiah 7:24 (NIV)
Keep your ears open. “Listen, O my people, to my instruction; incline your ears to the words of my mouth.” ~ Psalm 78:1 (NASB)
Remember God’s plans are the best, so call on Him and seek Him with all your heart. “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NASB)
Keep your ears open and your feet ready to follow. “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” ~ John 10:27 (NASB)
Tune out the voices of the world. Tune into the voice of God.
