 Here’s a sample excerpt from past devotionals:
“He that Hath Ears to Hear, Let Him Hear”
Matthew 11:15
 Listening to God's Voice
It’s not only possible to hear from God, it’s absolutely essential! Mary took the time to sit and listen to Jesus (See Lk 10:39). Her sister Martha didn’t, she was too busy serving. There’s a lesson here: You can get so busy serving the Lord that you lose your sensitivity to His voice and end up settling for second best. You learn to hear from God - by making time to hear from God! Fifteen times in the New Testament Jesus said: “He that hath an ear let him hear.” This tells you 3 important things: (1) You were born into God’s family with spiritual ears. (2) You have to learn how to use them. (3) Hearing from God must become your highest priority. A baby is born with the ability to hear, but he doesn't understand what he's hearing. Understanding takes time; it requires intimacy with his parents. Getting the idea? Luke writes: “Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures” (Lk 24:45 NIV). Looking back over your life you realize that God has often talked with you, you just didn’t understand what He was saying at the time. But He’s patient with you while you learn.
Why is it that you can hear from God in times of crisis, yet not at other times? Because you have to! Until that changes, you’ll keep living from crisis to crisis and you’ll never learn to hear from Him regularly or correctly. Jesus said, “I can of mine own self do nothing; as I hear, I judge” (Jn 5:30). Jesus did only those things placed in His mind by God the Father. And He wants you to learn to live that way too!
“You Intended to Harm Me, But God Intended it for Good”
Genesis 50:20 NIV
Have you been wronged?
What do we learn from the story of Joseph? (a) That when God wants you in a palace nobody can keep you in a pit! (b) That your future is not in the hands of others, it’s in the hands of God. (c) That your assignment doesn’t require the cooperation of everyone else, but it does require the cooperation of one person – you!
Have others said and done things that wronged you? Joseph’s brothers made the wrong decision in resenting him. Potiphar’s wife made the wrong decision in falsely accusing him. The butler made the wrong decision in turning his back on him. But God didn’t abandon him! He arranged every step Joseph took, all the way to the throne. After years apart he now stands face to face with those who hurt him and says: “You intended to harm me; but God intended it for good.” Try to understand this: the purpose of God will always overcome the plans of men! No one can prevent God from using you, blessing you and giving you success, except you. So keep your heart and your attitude right! There’s a reason for everything. There’s also a season. Though you cannot understand it at the moment, stand on what God’s promised you, recall His faithfulness and trust Him to work things out. He can make the wrong decisions of those around you work for your good. Instead of looking for someone to blame, start seeing the hand of God at work in your situation. Remember what the Bible says: “All that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans.” (Ro 8:28 TLB)
