Stop Doing All the Talking!


The Lord Jesus Christ wants us to believe in Him as Lord and in His death and resurrection and to surrender ourselves to His lordship and to have a personal relationship with Him! And just as a healthy relationship does not involve one person doing all the talking, the same is true when it comes to a relationship with God! Yet I sometimes meet people who think a relationship with Jesus is all and only about praying to God! Oh, not so!

If you are praying, praying, praying to God and not spending lots of time listening, it is time to stop doing all or most of the talking!

What is the #1 way to listen to God? Read the Bible! But this is not all. God also speaks to our hearts by His Holy Spirit and through dreams, visions, other people, and in any manner He so chooses always and only in line with the Bible.

Reading the Bible every day is the best way to hear God’s voice and to learn to discern and distinguish His voice when He is speaking to you at any other time.

A healthy relationship with the Lord includes loving Him, praising, honoring, adoring, worshiping, serving, praying, seeking, hearing, obeying, pouring our hearts out to, experiencing, enjoying, communing with, and glorifying God!

If you are doing all the talking, or most of it, it is time to make some changes!

Read the Bible daily and learn to hear Him and follow Him day by day and forevermore! Amen!

“And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.”” John 10:4-5 NKJV
