Do you have ears? Then hear life not death
Revelation 2:7 - He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
When God Himself has created man with ears, still the Lord is asking each and every one of us, 'do you have ears?'
We may all possess ears but what the Lord is asking us, do we use it? The Lord is not talking only of our physical but also the ears which we use to hear our conscience and what the Spirit of the Lord speaks to us.
We have hardened our hearts so much that we have mastered the art of selective hearing. What we want we hear, we hear and what we find it difficult to adhere to, we filter - hearing by convince. It is only when we hear, can we take the next step of acting on it.
Another factor why we do not hear is because of the disturbances that are there within us. Our worries, our own agendas, hatred, lust, greed, pride, faithlessness etc. scream at us for attention and instead of ignoring them we tend to give attention to them.
What are we going to hear life or death? Do not let our carnal selves talk to us. We can start by ignoring them, soon or later they will shut up and we will have victory over them and live for ever.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, forgive us for not hearing You and our Words of life. We have been giving our ears unto our carnal self. Lord we pray that we be able to give a deaf ear to our carnal selves and give our full attention to the Words of life which You speak unto us...
We ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
