God’s Way of Listening

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Isaiah 50:5. The Lord God has opened my ear,and I was not rebellious; I turned not backward.

Our question is how do we learn to be a good listener? We ask God to open our ears to hear others as He hears them. We must learn to tune our minds in to what they are saying rather than thinking about what we want to say. Thinking about our own words while someone else is talking is going back to our sinful nature. When we listen God’s way we listen with our entire being, our ears, our hearts, our minds and our eyes. The same words can and do have different meanings depending on the expression of the face and voice. So often we miss a ministry opportunity because we only listen to the words rather than the person. Let’s always ask God to open our listening ears which include our hearts, minds and eyes.
