God knows your needs. He knows what you need to hear the very moment you open your Bible.
Often times the very first thing we read will be relevant to our current situation. Has that ever happened to you? Other times we need to spend more time digging into the Word, and then something will pop out at you and resound in your heart. Either way we come out feeling refreshed.
Once you hear from God, the most important question you can ask yourself is, “What am I going to do about it?”
We can read and read and pray and pray, but unless we do something about what we hear from God, it essentially will be fruitless. If you hear God’s voice, don’t put off responding until it’s convenient!
“The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward. Lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, that the people of Israel may go through the sea on dry ground.” Exodus 14:15-16
Imagine what would have happened to the Israelites if Moses didn’t act immediately on what God spoke to him! Moses stretched out his staff over the red sea and God did the impossible. He parted the waters and the Israelites safely crossed to the other side, just in time to escape the Egyptian army.
When you seek and hear God directing your path, do something about it! It may not be parting the red sea, but whatever it is He will get you safely to the other side! If He urges you to call someone and ask for forgiveness, He will give you the words to speak. If He places it on your heart to take that job, He will pave the way. Have faith!
God loves a willing and obedient heart—it is a heart that responds to love and respect for His purpose and plan for us. God is speaking, what will you do about it?
“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going… For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God.” Hebrews 11:8,10
