Speak, Lord

Get into the habit of saying, "Speak, Lord," and life will become a romance. Every time circumstances press, say, "Speak, Lord"; make time to listen. Chastening is more than a means of discipline, it is meant to get me to the place of saying, "Speak, Lord." Recall the time when God did speak to you. Have you forgotten what He said? Was it Luke 11:13 (If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?), or was it 1 Thessalonians 5:23 (And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ)? As we listen, our ear gets acute, and, like Jesus, we shall hear God all the time.

[Oswald Chambers]

Romans 10:17 … So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Psalm 107:20 … He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

John 17:17 … Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. ♥
