When Life Hurts

Are You Listening?

I can’t decide what to write today. As I thumb through Scripture, I feel as if I am standing in front of a fire hydrant!  There is so much. So much Love. So much truth. So much instruction. So much God! Do you take the time to listen to what God is telling you about Himself? About you? Listening and applying can change your life.

I have highlighted through much of Scripture the words that tell of God’s character, so these words catch my eye.

  • He is gentle and kind;
  • His thoughts and ways are higher than my thoughts and ways;
  • His righteousness upholds Him, He hears when we call;
  • He will accomplish that which He desires;
  • He has with us a covenant of peace;
  • We have a future and a hope;
  • He is the Redeemer, the Holy One;
  • He has great compassion;

The list is endless. God is here. He loves us and wants to be in relationship with us.He wants to renew our minds (Rom. 12:2) through His word and His relationship with us. But are we listening?

So often I set my eyes on the things of this world, the troubles, the frustrations, the busyness, the doubts. Where my thoughts go, so go I. I choose this day to think upon God’s Word, His promises, His love. I will dwell on praise to our God. I will sing unto Him. I will trust Him and be content to allow Him to be Lord over all of my life. Okay, I may worry a bit, but I will turn all anxious thoughts to Him and He will guard my heart and mind with peace through Christ Jesus.

What is your heart telling you? Are you living in fear, anxiety, and depression? Are you listening to God? He has a much better way for His children to live. He wants us to live in victory, praise, peace, love, and hope(Col. 1:4, 1 Thess. 1:3).
