#26 Yeah I Get You

Not every listening problem is hearing related. What? Hearing what God had to say is not the same thing as actually listening to God. This topic is Christianity 101. The words “not listening” can often be replaced with “disobedience.” Both are understanding what God wants from me, but rejecting that.

One more thing to be thankful for is how God has kind of defined for us what a good listener looks like. [James 1:22a] Be doers of the word, and not hearers only. Actually going and doing what God has made clear we are to do, would provide ample evidence we have indeed listened to Him.
