Should We Expect To Hear From God?
We never know when the Word of the Lord will come to us. God might speak to us while we are driving down the road, talking to a stranger, riding on a train, sitting at a stoplight, taking a shower, or as we are just about to fall asleep. He might speak to us right here and right now, or He might wait a while. No one knows the hour. But rest assured, God will answer us when the time is right.
Scripture: “In the eleventh month of the twelfth year, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me:” – Ezekiel 26:1
The key for me is expectation. I expect to hear from God. When I go to church, I expect that God is going to reveal something very special to me during the service. When I am reading scripture, I expect that God is provide a Word that will transform my mind, and my day. And the closer I get to God, the more that I hear from Him. The more I read, the more I gather with fellow believers, the more that I worship, the more that His Word can become alive in me.
No matter the year, no matter the month, no matter the day, God’s Word can transform our lives in an instant. It can renew us, restore us, and refresh us. It can heal us from the inside out. No problem is too big for our God. So let the Word of God transform us, as God reveals himself to us no matter the year, the moth, the day, or the hour. And let us “not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that we may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” – Romans 12:2
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your Word this morning. Thank you for revealing yourself to us through your Word, and through prayer, and through praise, and by your Holy Spirit. We know that Jesus changed everything. And we know that Jesus changes everything. Draw us closer to you Lord. Help us to expect to hear from you Lord. And let us not be blind when you do. We surrender to your perfect Will, and give you all the honor and glory, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
