Use Your Ears And Listen!

by Hazel Straub

How often could we avoid trouble in our lives, if we first listen, lead with our ears and keep the lips zipped? We have two ears and one mouth, for a reason. Full surrender to God, our gardener, allows him to make us into an oasis of life. Listening to him requires action and obedience.

My dearest brothers and sisters, take this to heart: Be quick to listen, but slow to speak. And be slow to become angry, for human anger is never a legitimate tool to promote God’s righteous purpose.  So this is why we abandon everything morally impure  and all forms of wicked conduct.  Instead, with a sensitive spirit  we absorb God’s Word, which has been implanted within our nature, for the Word of Life has power to continually deliver us. Don’t just listen to the Word of Truth and not respond to it, for that is the essence of self-deception. So always let his Word become like poetry written and fulfilled by your life! 

If you listen to the Word and don’t live out the message you hear, you become like the person who looks in the mirror of the Word to discover the reflection of his face in the beginning. You perceive how God sees you in the mirror of the Word, but then you go out and forget  your divine origin. But those who set their gaze deeply into the perfecting law of liberty  are fascinated by and respond to the truth they hear and are strengthened by it—they experience God’s blessing in all that they do! (James 1:19-25 TPT)
