When God Speaks To You Make Sure You Act On What You Hear #WFJ
January 29, 2011 by Lynne Lee
When God is speaking to you do you pay attention and act on what you hear quickly?
Most people wait for God to speak to them again or in a number of different ways before taking action, but in the meantime they have lost time.
God wants you to recognise His voice and act on what you hear when He asks you to do something.
God is looking for obedient followers. If you don’t act on what you hear or wait for confirmation when it’s clear that God has already spoken then you are actually being disobedient…stop and think about that for a moment.
If God speaks to you and you don’t recognize His voice or if you wait for Him to tell you several times, you may miss an opportunity to be blessed or to bless someone else.
Fortunately, God is very gracious and He often gives you further opportunities. But if you repeatedly ignore His voice or fail to recognise that He’s speaking to you, He may well ask somebody else to do what He wanted you to do.
Are you missing out on opportunities? Are other people missing out on blessings because you aren’t recognising when God is speaking or acting on the “inklings” that suddenly come?
A sudden thought to give someone flowers might seem like nothing important to you, but it might be really important. It might be just what they need to help them to believe that God really cares. When you respond to that spontaneous thought you are saying, “I’m willing to be Your hands and feet.”
Deciding to respond to the sudden thought that comes to do something so simple and so small that anyone could do it, can make the world of difference to somebody.
It’s fun recognising the voice of your Father, responding right away and seeing the blessing that comes.
Ask the Lord:
“LORD, what is one thing you want me to do right now?”
Father, help me to listen to Your voice, trust it’s really You speaking to me, and then act in faith. Help me to be willing to make mistakes as I embark on this journey of hearing Your voice and acting on what I hear, knowing that I’ll get it right more often as I step out and have the courage to believe and act.
