Do you have ears to hear the voice of the Lord?
God primarily speaks to us through His Word. Many believers only pick up their Bibles when they go to church on Sunday. They literally have to dust it off.
Many people who say that they are Christians, they say that they are a born-again believer, refuse to obey the Word of God. Jesus is the Word of God; if you are following Him, then you will make the choice to obey His Word.
For this reason, the church is full of sick people, people without victory in their lives. They live for themselves, do and say what they please, write whatever they want on the internet and disregard the Lord.
When the Holy Spirit tries to speak to them through their spirit, they can’t hear Him because they have continuously ignored Him. They have already purposed in their hearts to NOT do what He says.
Jeremiah 6:16-19 NKJV “Thus says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it. ’Also, I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But they said, ‘We will not listen.’Therefore hear, you nations, And know, O congregation, what is among them. Hear, O earth! Behold, I will certainly bring calamity on this people— The fruit of their thoughts, Because they have not heeded My words Nor My law, but rejected it.
God has removed His hand of protection and guidance from many believers because they refuse to obey the Word of God.
John 14:15, 21, 23-24 NKJV “If you love Me, keep My commandments.”
21. “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”
23-24. “Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.”
The Father in heaven, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit are One God; they are the Word of God. (John 1:1; John 1:14; 1 John 5:7)
1 John 5:7 NKJV “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.”
Our sin has closed the ears of God, so He cannot hear our prayers. The Lord will, however, always hear the prayer of repentance.
Isaiah 59:2 NKJV “But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.”
Your disobedience to the Word of God, sin, will keep you from receiving the blessings and promises of God.
Jeremiah 5:24 NKJV “Your iniquities have turned these things away, And your sins have withheld good from you.”
Royal One, make the choice TODAY to have God active in your life; chose to obey the Word of God. Read and study the Word; get to know the heart of God.
If you need to repent for any reason; (uproot the seeds of sin that you have sown) DO IT! YOU must turn from your sin, disobedience to the Word of God, and turn back to God, and make the choice to obey His Word; then ask for forgiveness in the name of Jesus! Forgive everyone who has ever harmed you; forgive yourself for the hurt that you have done to others and to the heart of God.
