一旦專心向祂,你會清楚聽見上帝的聲音,祂會對你講話,引導你的道路…

傾向祂

你是否試過在一個充滿噪音的環境與他人對話?當聽不見對方的時候,你會怎麼做?通常,我們會往對方身邊靠近一點。這樣可以正專注在對方身上,並且專心注視對方的臉部表情,讓溝通更有效率。同樣的,當身旁環境吵雜時,我們應當更傾向神,專心傾聽。

列王紀上,以利亞在山上,他面前有列風大作,崩山碎石,耶和華卻不在風中, 風後地震,耶和華也不再其中;震後有火,耶和華卻不在其中;火後有微小的聲音。我們所要做的,是等待並傾聽那微小的聲音。

如果今天,你覺得聽不見上帝的聲音,或許,是你該傾身的時候。離開周遭的吵雜,可以讓你更專心在祂身上;遠離科技,關掉手機,行程表中只留下與祂的約會。明白祂對你的愛永不更改,並有好消息要告訴你。

今天以及每一天,我們都要在祂身旁佔好位置,勤奮閱讀神的話、禱告、敬拜。一旦專心向祂,你會清楚聽見上帝的聲音,祂會對你講話,引導你的道路。
 

Lean into Him

Posted by Victoria Osteen on 7/31/2012

Have you ever been in a crowded, noisy room trying to have a conversation with someone? If you can't hear what they are saying, what do you do? Most likely, you lean in just a little bit closer so you can hear them better. You probably focus more intently on their facial expressions so you can understand what they are communicating. In the same way, when the noise of life seems overwhelming, that's when we need to lean into God just a little bit closer. That's when we need to make the extra effort to focus more intently on Him.

There's a passage in First Kings where Elijah goes up on the mountain to meet with the Lord. Scripture says a great, powerful wind blew and broke the rocks, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind, there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake, there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire, a still, small voice. This tells me that when life rages all around, when circumstances seem powerful and overwhelming, that's when we need to wait for His still, small voice.

If you're in a situation today where you feel like you can't quite hear God, maybe it's time to lean into Him a little bit more. Maybe it's time to tune out the voices of the world so you can set your focus on Him. Maybe it's time to turn off technology, turn off the phone, and clear your schedule for Him. Know that He loves you with an everlasting love, and He has good things in store for your future.

Today and every day, we need to make sure to set aside time for Him. Let's be diligent to study His Word and spend time in prayer and worship. When you meditate on Him, when you keep yourself in an atmosphere of faith and surround yourself with other believers, you'll hear His voice more clearly. He'll speak to you; He'll guide your steps and lead you into victory all the days of your life.
