Walking in the Light of God’s Word
Loving the Lord #2 – Listening to and Hearing God for Direction and Discernment
Proverbs 3:32 (NIV) reminds us that the Lord “takes the upright into his confidence.” Can you remember a time when you have sensed that the Lord has taken you into His confidence? Reflect on some of your own times with the Lord. It may have been while reading the Scriptures, praying, talking with another believer, singing songs of worship, or even just listening to His voice. Can you remember a moment when you experienced an almost tangible moment with God?
“Speak Lord, Your servant is listening.” 1 Samuel 3:8–9
“Mary…listening to the Lord’s word, seated at his feet.” Luke 10:38–42
“Shall I not share with Abraham what I am about to do?” Genesis 18:17
“His anointing teaches you all things.” 1 John 2:27
I remember having a personal encounter with God when . . .
Share prayers of thanksgiving with a partner or small group. Celebrate that He has revealed Himself to you and then pray with confidence that He will do it again. Ask Him boldly to take you into His confidence again! Speak, Lord. I am listening . . .
