How To Hear God's Voice (1 of 8)
THE AWESOME POWER OF LISTENING TO GOD
As a parent, I think one of the most frustrating things to me as my children were growing up is that sometime I felt like I was talking but they weren't listening. Do you know what I mean? I see all you parents shaking your heads.
It is just a strange phenomena to me how a child, whether they are a preschooler, in elementary school or mid school or high school, it doesn't matter what age they are, it's amazing how they can be tuned in and hear things you don't want them to
hear, but the things you say to them they don't hear at all. It's a little bit frustrating trying to speak to your children because you want to communicate with them.
That's one of the great challenges of parenting is learning how to communicate with children and communicate in such a way that they can communicate back to us as parents.
So tonight you can imagine how the Lord feels in trying to communicate to us because, without a doubt, God wants to talk to us. I want in these next Sundays to look at the awesome power of listening to God.
I've also found it true that the older I became as I grew up, the more I listened to my parents. The more I would remember the advice they gave me. After I left home, the more I would remember their advice and I could hear their words in my ears as I would learn lessons the hard way.
I think we experience that as God's children as well as we grow and mature in the Lord. As we become stronger in the Lord, then we learn more and more that there is a great power if we listen to God's voice.
We are going to begin in Hebrews 1:1-2. This is a passage that speaks about how God has spoken to His people. It says: "In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, (2) but
in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe."
