Relationships struggle without conversation. Conversation is more than one person doing all the talking. Conversation is about listening as well. When we have better conversations with God, we will have a better relationship with Him. When we stop doing all the talking and take time to listen, we will come to know more about Him. There are so many ways to listen to what God wants us to hear. We need to make an effort starting today to build our relationship with God by gladly listening to Him.
John 8:47 “Anyone who belongs to God listens gladly to the words of God. But you don’t listen because you don’t belong to God.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us today to listen. Help us to have the desire to listen to You and not the things of the world. This world gets so noisy and people distract us. We need to Your gentle reminders and kind words to know what we need to do that is Your will. Today, we open our hearts and minds to You. We open our ears and will stay alert to look for how You want to speak to us. Then we will be obedient to Your command. Thank You Lord for the conversations we are going to have today with You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
