Listen! ~ August 25

Listen!

And you will hear

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ. Romans 10:17

I sometimes think I need to hear the message all day long. It’s so easy to get caught up in the challenges of the day and slip out of faith mode. I start my days reading and writing about all the wonderful things God does for us, number one of which is love us unconditionally, then as I move on into the day, I tend to forget all the good stuff.

I notice something else; it’s easy for me to encourage others, but I often realize I have a do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do attitude. I can tell someone else to have faith, be strong, and believe God is working to fulfill their hopes and dreams, but I don’t always accept those things for myself. Oh, I do most of the time, but it’s far too easy to slide into condemnation and fear when it comes to my own trials and tribulations. But I’m working on it! (see Philippians 3:13)

I truly believe the way to work on it is to stay focused on God and His word. All the answers are right there if you just continue to seek them. Seek and you will find. Listen and you will hear.
