Being Here to Hear

Who? What? When? Where? Why? Think on what He is speaking to you in sermons, in devotions, in everything.

In the broken porchlight that won’t turn off during the day like it’s supposed to… God is saying, “let your light shine before men.”

Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God concerning them is for their salvation! I can testify about them that they have zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. Because they disregarded the righteousness from God and attempted to establish their own righteousness, they have not submitted themselves to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. For Moses writes about the righteousness that is from the law: The one who does these things will live by them.But the righteousness that comes from faith speaks like this: Do not say in your heart, “Who will go up to heaven?” that is, to bring Christ down or, “Who will go down into the abyss?” that is, to bring Christ up from the dead. On the contrary, what does it say? The message is near you, in your mouth and in your heart. This is the message of faith that we proclaim: If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation. 11 Now the Scripture says, Everyone who believes on Him will not be put to shame,12 for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, since the same Lord of all is rich to all who call on Him. 13 For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. (Romans 10)

Keep a journal of what God speaks to you, or underline it in your Bible – make note of it somehow, so you won’t forget.

17 So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the message about Christ. (Romans 10)

Our relationship with Him begins with faith, which comes by first hearing, then believing. We need to stay focused on Him, not on ourselves. Sometimes our problems are so intense, we stop focusing on Him and focus only on ourselves. When we are always focused on ourselves, we only consider what we need. We need to focus on Him, for He is worthy to be praised, all the time.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you. (Matthew 6:33)

Life with Christ is not about your performance. It is only about Him. He accomplished everything we need at the cross. Our faith is rests not on religious practices, but on the blood of Jesus.

God places different people in our lives who speak and do things that encourage and enrich us spiritually. So also then, you are one of those people in someone else’s life. Has someone offended you? The offense is under the blood of Jesus. Do not continue to remember it; let it be forgiven.

What He is doing through you is powerful. Continually, always, give Him praise!
