Vital signs

Take Time To Listen

If you don't make time for God, you are not going to hear from God. You have to slow down and be quiet so you can hear him. When you are in a hurry you can't hear God. When we live hurried lives, God gets shuffled off into the spare minutes and he is short changed with our time. We say, "Lord, speak to me but do it quickly." Skimping on our time with God leads to a life that becomes more and more shallow. We don't go deep because we don't make time for it. We aren't spending enough time alone with God, if at all. He needs quality time to change us. This shallow lifestyle, where we're always in a hurry, represents the shallow or rocky soil in Jesus' parable. Jesus says this shallow soil represents a superficial mind. A person with this mind kind of listens to God's Word, and maybe gets emotionally moved, but she/he never really does anything about it. How do you get past this? How do you change from being a shallow person to a deep person who keeps the faith even when a recession or an illness or a job loss or marriage trouble hits? You need two things: A daily quiet time -- You need time alone with God to read the Bible, pray and keep a journal of the things you are learning. A weekly small group -- You need time with other believers who are close to you and can give you a fresh perspective. They can give you the encouragement and accountability you need to go deeper in your relationship with God.

“And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭8:6‬ ‭
