Day 18 of Prayer & Fasting - Pray to Hear God when He Speaks
John 10:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
We often miss hearing God's voice simply because we aren't paying attention. - Rick Warren
“A NATIVE American was walking down the street with a businessman one day. The Native American stopped.
“Listen!” he said. “For what?” the business replied. “Don’t you hear it?” “Hear what?” “Crickets.” “Crickets? I do not hear any crickets.”
The Native American continued to try to help the businessman hear what he heard: “Oh, they’re loud. Just listen! Don’t you hear them?” Getting a little disgruntled, the businessman said, “I don’t hear any crickets.” The Native American looked around, and right over on the side, there was a cricket. He went and picked it up. The businessman looked shocked. “I can’t believe that. We are here downtown with all these people. You and I are talking and you can hear a cricket. I don’t know how you did that.”
The Native American reached into his pocket and took out some change. He threw it on the ground. Twenty people stopped walking. Then he said, “You always hear what you are tuned in to. You are tuned into money; you are going to hear a penny when it’s dropped. I am tuned in to nature, I hear a cricket.”
A lot of Christians will miss the still small voice of God because they are not tuned in.
1. Are you really paying attention to God’s voice?
2. What are you tuned into?
