John 2:5 (NKJV)
Whatever He says to you, do it.
In her book Discerning the Voice of God, Priscilla
Shirer says hearing from God all comes down to obedience. There’s that word we love so much! Obedience.
Yes, God desires an
intimate relationship with us but within that relationship He wants our
obedience. He knows and is telling us
what’s best for our life, but in order to experience our best we must obey.
How often do you ask for
God’s opinion when you know ahead of time how you plan to proceed? Do you ever disregard God’s guidance as
illogical and talk yourself out of His plan?
Why would God continue to speak to you when you don’t obey?
It’s a snowball
effect. God knows your heart when you
ask for guidance. He knows if you plan
to obey. He starts small with baby faith
steps. When you take the action He
directs, He reveals more and more, taking you on the most fulfilling ride of
your life. Come to Him with a pure
heart. Risk following His Voice. Experience God. It’s exciting!
Matthew 5:8 – Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
