I Hear You

Romans 10:14-21

I have a secret “marriage saver.” I can pause live TV. I know it sounds crazy, but it’s true. Before the service on my TV allowed me to record and pause programs, I would get into trouble with my wife. Do you know what I’m talking about? My wife would be recalling her day to me, pouring her heart out, needing my attention only to realize mid-sentence that I had turned my head toward her, but my eyes were on the TV. Truthfully, I wasn’t listening very well. With this newly implemented technology, I simply pause the show and turn my attention toward her.

Listening and hearing are different. I was hearing her as she spoke, but I wasn’t listening. How many times have we listened to God? Often we bombard him with requests, but he longs to speak to us. God is speaking. The question is, “Are we paying attention?”

Do more than just hear the message; listen to the words as God speaks to you today.
