but whoever listens to me will dwell secure
and will be at ease, without dread of disaster
A news flash notified the viewers that a young man who was on his way to work was found dead on the railroad. According to the witnesses, the guy who was a security guard was wearing an earphone. He probably hasn’t heard of the sound of the coming train that’s why he was hit badly which had cost him his life.
When I heard of that news, I can’t help but feel pity to the young man and his family and at the same time I felt sad for the life that was wasted. Most of the time,we commit mistakes because of not listening. God uses so many ways to speak to us. He uses the Bible, pastors, our parents, teachers, friends,co-workers, etc to send His messages. It is up to us if we’ll keep our ears close or hear what He is saying but take it for granted or listen and act upon it.
Do no ignore the small voice of God.
How will we know the direction if we won’t listen to the instruction? How will we know the weather if we won’t hear it from the forecaster?
Sometimes, God’s answers to our prayers are just around us. How do we find it if we are refusing to listen? Remove your earplugs that block God’s voice and hear what He wanted to say. Open your heart. God is knocking, let him come in.
