God Wants You To Listen To Him

While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” (Mat. 17:5).

Peter, James, and John were with Jesus on the mount of transfiguration. God said to them, listen to Him. God wants to speak to us. It’s His desire to speak to every one of us. The issue is, are we listening? How can I know the plan and purpose of God if I don’t listen to Him? How do I know God is speaking if I cannot distinguish between His voice and what someone else is saying? Many think God will not speak to them, so they just go on in life making their own decisions which are almost always wrong decisions anyway. Think about what happens to people when they fail to listen. Much as you want your children, workers, friends, supervisors, parents, and students to listen to you, so does God.

God wants us to know how to listen to Him. It’s very important to learn how to listen to God so you will be able to share with someone else. Disobedience always brings disappointment. Learn the lesson of the prodigal son who didn’t listen. “Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow” (Mark 4:3). Listen to this; He was saying to them that it’s very important that they listen. Those who have ears listen to what the Spirit is saying (Rev. 2:29). Jesus was saying don’t be a passive listener but a purposeful listener. Therefore, listen to what I want to say. I want you to hear this, understand and apply it to your life, because a purposeful listener is one that listens with intent.
