As I sat working today, I could not help but overhear someone speaking to an individual on the phone who was clearly, hard of hearing.
The one woman was pretty much yelling to be heard. She was trying to tell the person on the other end of the line, they are picking them up at 3:00 for a hearing appointment. I know this, as I heard it - 3 times!
I wonder how often, God has not been trying to speak to me and I am the one who needs the appointment to hear God more clearly. In the middle of the many things which are easier to do, scrabble, baking, Netflix, Pinterest ( you will sadly note that the gym is not on the list) Stopping, and really listening to what the Good Shepherd who does speak to His sheep, is saying to me.
For today, I think I get it. "Donna, I am talking to you! Will you listen! I have much I want to tell you if you would just slow down and listen to Me!"
When you slow down, get quiet, what is God saying to you? He is always speaking to us, because He loves us and longs for us to know Him better. Psalm 95: 7-8" Today, if only you would hear His voice and not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did in Massah, in the wilderness"
God's people were not far diffrenent. They failed to hear God's voice, yet His call to them, is the same as the call to us " When you hear My voice, do not harden your hearts"
