TOPIC: WHY YOU CAN’T HEAR
Read: Acts 13:1-2
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;” 2 Timothy 4:3
There are at least three categories of people when it comes to hearing God. First, those who have no ears – these are people whose consciences are dead and don’t care about the consequences of their actions. Second, those who have ears but refuse to hear – they get nudged by the Holy Spirit from time to time but choose to ignore it and go ahead with their own plans (e.g. Samson).
The third are those who have ears, listen to instructions and obey them. Here are some other reasons people don’t hear God:1. Not having a close relationship with God.2. Interference of other voices.3. Listening to gossip/rumours.4. Backbiting.5. Lousiness.6. Pride. Work on yourself from today by taking away anything that prevents you from hearing God. Dwell more on His word and communicate with Him daily through prayers.
Father, please eliminate everything blocking my ears from hearing You, in Jesus’ name.
