Mia’s Line Up: February 23, 2013

I had a sudden epiphany just a couple weeks ago about something personal I’ve been dealing with the past couple months or so. During those tough times, I couldn’t make sense of what God was trying to tell me because it was something I’ve been holding on to for quite awhile but He cut me off and turned everything around. My questions were just piling up and I felt very spiritually weak. I guess it was one of those moments where we feel like God’s not listening to us. I’m sure most of us have gone through those type of situations.


Then there was this one day where I was sitting at home, doing my devotions when suddenly, I realized what God was trying to tell me the whole time. Then I remembered the guest speaker’s message about prayer from one of our youth nights. He said, “ When you pray, let God do the talking first. You wait for Him to speak. And if you don’t hear anything. Wait, because God’s never late. He speaks to you at the right time at the right moment.” I realized that the whole time, He WAS talking to me. But I was talking too much to the point where I was too loud and I became deaf to His voice. Even when I wasn’t talking on the outside, my heart was constantly grumbling and complaining loudly. I realized that is constantly trying to speak to us every moment of the day but because we are surrounded by lots of sounds, voices and distractions, we lose our ability to hear God’s still, small voice. This reminds me very much of how teenagers (I’m pretty guilty of this too, haha.) multi-task at home during homework time. Like I’d have my earphones on, my phone next to me, my laptop and the TV on while I’m trying to study. Personally, I find that relaxing but it surely doesn’t get me to focus on what I’m supposed to be doing. Listening and focusing very much go together otherwise the information you’re taking in would make no sense to you. What I learned from the past couple of months is that the less I speak, the more I hear God. When we learn to control the loudness of our hearts, God’s voice becomes loud and clear. When our hearts seek Him, He is more than willing to speak to us. That’s why God gave us two ears and one mouth, right? Ecclesiastes 5:2 (MSG) Don’t shoot off your mouth, or speak before you think. Don’t be too quick to tell God what you think he wants to hear. God’s in charge, not you—the less you speak, the better.  

 

Even when the world around us gets too loud, when we our whole being is focused on Him, we can hear His small distinct voice. The Lord says, “Be still and know that I am God.” Not only does He speak to us, but He shows us a clear picture of what He’s doing in our lives. Sometimes God will show us through very abstract pictures and the first time we see it, it’ll totally make no sense to us. Then at the perfect time, He’ll flip the picture upside down, our questions will be answered, we learn from our trials, and at end, our faith in our Father is strengthened.



My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.
