Walking with God is not that complicated. There’s not a formula but I do believe there are certain things we can do which can definitely make it easier.
Be willing to hear God’s voice.
Be willing to listen to what God is saying.
Be willing to obey what God is saying.
Be willing to trust what He is saying He can do.
In Luke 1 Mary demonstrates all four of these and she does so with such great simplicity of faith, it is quite wonderful. Let it be as you have spoken. I magnify You God. Look at what You are doing, through me and through this child to be born.
God speaks. She hears. She actually listens. She responds. She accepts. She obeys. She trusts.
In the rush of life we have to be ready to hear, to listen, to obey and to trust. There is power when we bring them all together. If we hear but don’t listen, we won’t understand what it is God is asking of us. Yet if we hear and listen but do not obey, we miss out on the fruitfulness of Gods full blessing. And we cannot obey and trust God in action if we do not know what He has been saying to us.
Only in the working of all four is there the full reward, the creation of something new in our lives, God making something seemingly out of nothing as we hear, listen, obey and trust. Then nothing is impossible. For ourselves, for the people around us, maybe even for the world.
Tell me why you would agree or not?
