I had the opportunity to share on the topic of Listening at Kings Fellowship on Sunday 31st July…

Together we looked at making time to listen, making space in the quiet to listen, getting ourselves into a posture for listening (getting ride of distractions), and then cooperating with what God is saying…

The objective was to help people to hear God voice for themselves… why?

John 4 records this response of people from a Smaritan village where Jesus stayed for a couple of days…

[Jesus] stayed for two days, long enough for many more to hear his message and believe. Then they said to the woman”Now we believe, not just because of what you told us but because we have heard ourselves. Now we know that he is indeed the Savious of the world”.

These people believed not just because of her witness… but because Jesus spoke to them directly.

Whoa… isn’t that fantastic… if we can bring people to within earshot of Jesus – he will speak and they will know for themselves…

My prayer…  Lord give us wisdom and understanding on how we can equip people  to hear you, and lead them to your presence. And Lord, help us get out of the way of people hearing you directly.
