Are you speaking too loud to hear when the Holy Spirit talks to you, or maybe when He is trying to correct you? When you are talking about others, gossiping, or stirring strife, you are drowning out the Holy Spirit, or else you are choosing not to listen to Him. If you continue to do this, you will develop what the Word calls a hard heart, and eventually you will not be able to hear Him at all.
PS 95 v 8...Today, if you will hear His voice; Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion, as in the day of trial in the wilderness…..
We saw what happened to those in the days of the wilderness, they wandered and wandered never finding the rest God had promised them, because of their lack of faith over and over. They eventually could not hear God speaking to them.
PS 95 v 9-11.…When your fathers tested Me, they tried Me, though they saw My work. For forty years I was grieved with that generation, and said, “It is a people who go astray in their hearts, and they do not know My ways”, so I swore in My wrath, they shall not enter My rest….
What about when the final trumpets blow, will you be able to hear or will you be speaking too loudly to know it? I do not mean audibly loud, I mean with what you are saying, with your words or your actions. AMEN!
Sometimes we can speak so loudly with our actions we do not even have to use words. That works both ways, to the good and to the bad., depending on our actions. AMEN!
If you are not walking in Love you are walking away from God. You can only walk with God, when you have love in your heart for your neighbor. AMEN!
1 John 4 v 20-21.…If someone says, “I love God”, and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him; that he who loves God, must love his brother also…..
When we are walking with GOD, we have peace and love in our hearts and our minds, and we can hear that small voice inside of us, leading us in the right direction, the voice of the Holy Spirit.
Let us all do some spring cleaning today, and clean out our spiritual house, clean out the hard wax in our ears and open up the word of God and listen to that voice tell us where we need to change, or how well we are doing. AMEN!
STAY IN THE WORD!
