I see that this week or maybe longer than a week I am going to have a lesson of listening to the Lord. In church today we heard a sermon teaching through Luke 23 and 24. There is a scripture that really spoke to me (one of a few). It was Luke 24:32 "And they said to one another, Were not our hearts greatly moved and burning within us while He was talking with us on the road and as He opened and explained to us the Scriptures."
Then Pastor John Spencer said isn't that how it is for us. We don't get that burning passion in our hearts from talking to the Lord and talking and talking and talking to Him. We get that passion when he speaks to our hearts, when we are quiet and listening to Him and sitting with Him and quiet with Him and reading His Word.
So thats what I desire. I want the passion and fire back in my heart even more. I want to love Him more. I know that this sounds strange to some but this relates to my eating in a big way. I can tend to eat when my body is not needing food and that distracts me from hearing the Lord, that keeps me from craving Him and listening to Him. My desire is to feed my body physical food when I am physically hungry, but when I am not...I want to crave the Lord completely.
Lord would you please help me now as I just step out and listen, to be quiet, to hear you Lord. To see what you are saying to me. Thank you for all the blessings in my life and I love you. In Jesus Name, Amen
