These are the promises I just read...
"Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you." - James 4:8
"The words I have spoken to you are Spirit and Life." John 6:63
"The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul.
The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
The commandments of the LORD are right, giving insight to life.
Reverence for the LORD is pure, lasting forever.
The laws of the LORD are true, each one is fair.
They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb.
They are a warning to those who hear them; there is great reward for those who obey them"
Today I know that I have been out of practice in listening to God...I know that I have been worshiping other idols...and I have been awkard with silence and when the rare opportunity comes, I rush to fill it with other things - and usually it's the computer. I find it amazingly hard to be still. But I can hear you ask (because I often ask this question too... )"What about the many times when I feel like I have drawn close, only to be met with silence? Why is God so hard to hear?"
Dave wrote an article recently that I felt like I could connect with...and he gave his permission for me to share it. Ok, here it is - we put it up on David's blog.
