I Will Hear...

I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: Psalm 85:8

The soul that hears the Lord speaking within and receives the words of comfort from His lips is truly blessed. Ears that hear the divine whispers of God and pays no attention to the complaints of this world is favored. When our ears listen to the voice of God and dismiss the voices from without, we are more inclined to hear what truth teaches. To have our eyes closed to exterior things and matters of this world and have our eyes fixed upon Christ, brings true contentment. 
The Lord encourages us to listen to His Word and His heart when He says, Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid John 14:27. “What are all temporal things but snares? And what help will all creatures be able to give you if you are deserted by the Creator? Leave all these things, therefore, and make yourself pleasing and faithful to your Creator so that you may attain to true happiness.” Quote by THOMAS À KEMPIS in Imitation of Christ.

The Lord gives understanding to the hearer and His Words are strength and life to those that listen. We are to write the Words of God on our heart and meditate on them earnestly for temptation will come and we will need strength to overcome. We are to walk before the Lord in truth that we may be defended against the attacks of evil.
Thought: Is God speaking to your heart? Are you listening and attentive to hear what the Lord is saying? Have you come to Him asking for knowledge and wisdom to live your life on His behalf?  Have you heard His voice in the still of the night speaking to you of things eternal or do the clamorous voices of this world drown out His sweet voice?
Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
Psalm 143:8

I hear the Savior say, “Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray, Find in Me thine all in all.”
“Jesus Paid It All” by Elvina M. Hall
