Keep your heart with all diligence
for out of it springs the issues of life.
Proverbs 4:23 NKJV
"Be silent, My child, and when you speak,
let it be your heart that calls My name.
Many have My name upon their lips
but their hearts are a hollow shell.
Love is not in a mouth that is fulll,
but in an overflowing heart.
With the heart man believes unto righteousness
and with the mouth he confesses unto salvation (Romans 10:10).
No mouth shall testify of salvation and speak the truth
until first the heart has believed unto righteousness.
I listen for the words of your heart.
I understand the language of love.
When you listen to My voice, listen with your heart."
From "On The Highroad of Surrender"
What a mighty word.
Oftentimes we may be listening,
but we are not hearing and discerning
the voice, heart or Spirit of the Lord.
Our 5 senses and other external or inward things,
keep us out of touch and out of tune with the
voice and heart of God. In addition to this,
these same things can deaden us or desensitize
us to the same.
So many people are longing, yearning and eagerly
waiting to hear God speak to them or give them
directions or answers about some one or something.
But did you know that God is more eager to speak to
you than you want to hear from Him?
God is always speaking, but we are not always listening
in a way that we can hear Him, as given in a few of the
Learning to pray with an open mind, an open spirit
and an open heart will help us hear and discern God's
voice or heart. Patience, quietness and stillness also
aid in our hearing from our loving, caring heavenly Father.
God may be speaking to you know through this blog.
If you feel you haven't heard Him today yet, keep an
open and attentive spirit and He will. God has a myriad of
ways to comunicate to us. As our heavenly Father, He will
go out His way to use what ever means necessary
to speak to us and get to our heart.
Be careful not to place any limits or restrictions on God
by expecting Him to speak or move in your life only by
ways you are familiar with or want Him to.
And remember, listen with your heart also!
