LISTENING WITH YOUR HEART

WEDNESDAY – JUNE 24th, 2015

Psalms 46:10  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

My mind and my heart often do not agree.  Our minds often think things that are contrary to what the heart knows to be true. We try to be intelligent people and because of that we try to reason everything in light of what the mind is able to fully comprehend.  God thinks outside the box and can do things with me that I would never be able to believe possible with my own mind.

1.         God’s plans for you are far greater then what you can plan for yourself –

Jeremiah 33:3  Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

2.         God’s scope of looking at things is far wider then you can ever see on your own.

Isaiah 55:8-9 – For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

3.         We are not even capable of thinking or dreaming the reality of what He already has planned for us.

Ephesians 3:20  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Wow, God has plans for me that are far greater then I can even Conceive!
Think about it.

Dream up that greatest dream you can, write it down and then present it to God.  His answer!  Why dream so small.  I have far greater things in store for you than that.  I am blown away by that.  So think about this, how do I find these plans He has for me?

1.         Learn to ask – Lord, what will you have me to do –

Acts 9:6  And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

2.         Learn to listen – Psalms 46:10  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

3.         Learn to act – James 1:25  But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

 

Father, help us to not be afraid to come to you to seek your direction and your will.  Let us take time to listen for your answers and give us the will to obey.  May our lives be fully blessed as we learn to listen and obey from the heart!  In Jesus name, amen.

Memory verse

Jeremiah 33:3  Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
