He who has ears to hear let him hear. Matthew 11:15 ESV
A few days ago, while watching my daughter on her baby monitor, I noticed she would startle every few seconds. At first, I was confused. Then I stopped what I was doing, stood still, and was able to hear the loud humming of a lawn mower.
In this moment, the Lord began to speak, “It’s time to turn down the noise of the world around you, and tune into my voice.”
You see, the sound of the lawn mower outside was always within hearing range; I just was just too distracted to notice it.
Today I ask you, is it possible we are too distracted to recognize His voice? For many, we have grown accustomed to focusing on the wrong voices. We have allowed insecurities, negativity, and life’s circumstances to resound in our minds like a clanging cymbal. Today, God is asking you to tune into His voice.
Father, I ask You to give me ears to hear Your words to me. Help me stay alert and recognize distractions from afar. Thank You, Lord, for speaking words of hope, love and victory over my life. Speak Lord, I’m listening. Amen.
What are the “voices” that you have allowed to become a distraction?
