March 13, 2022

Story Time



The challenge of hearing from God is not about getting God to talk, but about getting us to .

One of the classic predicaments of the Bible story is God desperately trying to reach us while we desperately resist Him.

If God could just get us to listen—and then to obey, He could save our lives.

Hearing From God, Our Way of Escape

There are many things that are hard for us that would be easy if we to God.

  • Marriage
  • Dating
  • Parenting
  • Career
  • Business
  • Finances
  • Health

This is not to say that a life of following God means a life without trials, tribulations and tests.

On the contrary, the Scripture tells us the opposite:

Psalm 34:19 

Take the Fast Track

Do you want to go fast or slow?

Psalm 32:8-9

God has more to share with us than we are to hear.

John 16:12 

Surrendering all to God on the front end is the track.

Resisting God at every turn before we submit is the track.

Focusing on the Seeking

Focus on the , not the finding.

Luke 11:9–10 ESV

Luke 11:9–10 AMP

Proverbs 2:1-9 ESV

Seek God in Community

Proverbs 1:10-14 ESV 

Psalms 1:1-2 ESV
