Listening for God & Loaded Breakfast Fries

Hebrews 4:12 (easy)

So, be careful! God’s message to us is alive and powerful. It is like a sword that has two sharp edges. Even more than a sword, God’s message goes very deep into us. It cuts between our souls and our spirits. It is like a sharp knife that can cut deep into our body between our bones. God’s message shows what we are really thinking. It shows what we really want.

Read

I’ve been guilty of reading the Bible as if it’s the newest novel and I’m against the clock before the movie comes out. It’s certainly full of great stories, but it’s so much more than that. The people in the Word are given to us as examples. They’re often meant to be placeholders so that we can insert ourselves into the narrative. God isn’t just telling us a story through His word, He’s using it to write one; yours.

Since the Word is alive and active, we know that God’s using it to speak directly to us. Nothing we read is meaningless. But in order to hear God’s voice, we have to read His Word with intention. This happens by not just scanning the pages for entertainment or information, but by turning on the interactive parts of our minds and doing some critical thinking while we’re reading.

We can ask ourselves questions like:
What is God trying to show me or tell me through this verse?
Is this an answer to a question I’ve been asking or direction in something I’ve been praying about?
How does this apply to me and my life?

I often find myself wondering why God isn’t answering my prayers, easing my discomfort, encouraging me, or guiding me in the direction He wants me to go. But if I’m honest with myself, and all of you, I’ve opened the Bible more times than I can count so that I could “check it off my list” for the day.

Seeking God’s voice is the same concept as anyone else in our lives; if we go into a conversation not fully present, not listening, or actually looking for a back-and-forth, we won’t get the full benefit from it. In Jeremiah 29:13, God tells us that we will search for Him, and when we search for Him with our whole hearts, we’ll find Him. In this case, we have to make sure that our hearts (and our minds) are actually fully seeking Him when we read the Word, because we know that He’s there, waiting to love on us. We just have to spend a little time listening.

Write

For today’s journal exercise, we’re going to practice reading scripture with intention. Open your Bible to Psalm 4:3 and read the following verse:

Remember that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself. The Lord hears me when I call out to him.

Re-read it as many times as necessary while asking yourself the questions from earlier:

What is God trying to show me or tell me through this verse?
Is this an answer to a question I’ve been asking or direction in something I’ve been praying about?
How does this apply to me and my life?

There are no wrong answers! This is just a way to begin searching for God’s voice in scripture and applying it to your life.

Pray

For eyes that see and ears that hear God’s voice with every moment spent in the Word.
