Let’s Not Miss

Proverbs 8:34-35 34 Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors,
waiting at my doorway. 35 For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord (NIV)

We must listen.  We must watch.  We must wait.  We don’t hear God because we don’t actively listen.  We don’t see the working of God in our lives and around us because we don’t actively watch.  We get into trouble because we don’t wait.  Basically, we’re spiritually lazy.  It take discipline and practice to learn to keep our ears attuned to the gentle whisper of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us.  It takes learning to use spiritual eyes and really seeing what and who is around us to see God’s works.  On my walks I often thank Him for the beautiful trees and the various music the birds make.  It takes patience to wait on the perfect timing of God.  He has more children than just us to coordinate with all of sour needs and desires.  Any one of us could be delaying His movement in some event.  When we learn to listen, watch and wait we find the full and abundant life and we feel and receive the favor from our Lord.  Let’s learn to practice daily, minute by minute listening, watching and waiting.  The fruits of the Holy Spirit are in us making all this possible.
