Have you ever became desperate to hear from the Lord? You think you’re not hearing Him, but it’s usually because the noise around you is drowning out His voice. A couple of years ago, I went on a retreat, and was required to take a chair, a Bible, and a notepad into the woods. I was given a few verses to look up, and some tasks to complete, and when I finished, it was as if I had tuned into a new frequency, giving me the ability the hear the Lord more clearly. It wasn’t the task, it was the commitment of time given to the Lord, it was being alone, and away from the busyness, with nothing on the agenda but to sit and listen to what God had to say. It’s amazing how He can speak to you through His creation. He created everything for a reason, not only for our comfort, and for our need, but I believe there is wisdom to be found within it. Look how Jesus used parables to teach the disciples, and He used the things around them as tools. Get away for a few hours to sit with the Lord, you’ll be amazed at the things He will reveal.
And the hand of the LORD was upon me there. And he said to me, “Arise, go out into the valley, and there I will speak with you.” Ezekiel 3:22
