Ears To Hear

“If anyone has an ear, let him hear.” Revelation 13:9 NKJV

Though I have ears, I don’t always listen with them.

Thank You, Lord, for allowing us to hear what You have to say. And here’s a simple poem . . .

You give to us
an inner ear
with which to listen
and to hear

what You would have
to say today –
all we need to know
how we need to pray.

God bless you as you hear from Him today!

Reading All The Words

“And the king went up to the house of the LORD with all the men of Judah, and with him all the inhabitants of Jerusalem – the priests and the  prophets and all the people, both small and great; and he read it in their hearing all the words of the Book of the Covenant which had been found in the house of the LORD.”  2 Kings 23:2

How blessed I am to be able to hold His word in my own hands, read it with my eyes and hear it as often as I’d like.

Oh Lord, please help us continue to get Your word out to others.  And here is a simple poem . . .

Send It Out

Could I remember Your word    
if only once I’d heard it
unable to hold it in my hands
and read it for myself
to turn the pages
and say it out loud
or send it forth
into the hands of others
waiting to touch, to see
to taste how good it is.

By Hearing

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Romans 10:17

What I hear the most is what I will have faith in.

Lord, may Your words echo in our ears long after we hear them. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Not So Secret Recipe

Here’s the word, My children
the ingredient faith’s made of

listen to it, absorb it
share it with love.

Whatever you hear contrary
will eat at your soul

but lend your ears to the word
and watch your faith grow.

Owning It

“And many more believed because of His own word.” John 4:41
“Then they said to the woman, ‘Now we believe, not because of what you said for we have heard for ourselves and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world’.” John 4:42

We’ve seen giraffes on t.v. and know they are tall. Seeing them close up at the zoo makes that fact more personally real.

Lord, we thank You for the testimony of others and for giving us each a testimony of our own. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Testimonies

We hear and believe
by their testimony
and our faith
takes wing.
Then Jesus comes
to us personally
and our faith
now sings.

Hearing and Learning

“Gather the people together. . . that they may hear and that they may learn to fear the Lord your God and carefully observe all the words of this law . . .” Deuteronomy 31:12

Moses’ days as a go between for God and His people were almost at an end. They would have to listen and learn to fear the Lord their God themselves.

O Father, thank You for making Your word available to me daily, lest I forget and lose my fear and awe of You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Healthy Fear

So much to read
so little time

yet I think God has
something else in mind

for me to focus on
His word while I’m here

so I can live out my days
with a healthy awe and fear.

Who’s Listening?

“So they went and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone and setting the guard.” Matthew 27:66

The chief priests and Pharisees guarded Jesus’ dead body. They had heard and remembered His claims to rise again the third day, even though they didn’t believe Him.

Lord, help us find a way to share Your word with those who persecute us and disbelieve today . . .in case tomorrow they remember as You reveal Yourself to them. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Picked Up

His words fall
like stones
that are picked up
and thrown back
at us
but they are
picked up.

Fire Away!

“Who is this?”  Matthew 21:10
“Do You hear what these are saying?”  Matthew 21:16
“By what authority are You doing these things?”  Matthew 21:23

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, everyone had questions.

Thank You, Lord, for being the answer for us all.  And here’s a simple poem. . .

Questions and Answers

Who is this? A teacher, a prophet?
– No, it is the Christ.
What does it mean? A change of government?
– No, it means new life.
Does He hear them calling,  Son of David?
– Oh yes, He has heard, for it was prophesied.
And whose authority is He under?
– His Holy Father’s, Whom He glorifies!
