IN YOUR FACE
PSALM 139:1-4 You have searched me, Lord, and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue You, Lord, know it completely.
Imagine waking up to this in your face. My “Little Man”, otherwise known as Bosco, has an attitude. If he wants attention, he wants it now! If he wants to go outside, it better be sooner than later. Say I am busy doing things around the house and he does not feel like I have given him his sufficient quota of love and attention, I hear about it. He let’s me know when it is time to get up, well…..look at him! He is a very good communicator.
Here is my question for you Dear Reader,
Are you a good communicator when it comes to talking to God?? Do you take time on a daily basis to chat with your Father and Savior?? Believe me, He wants to hear from you….. and often!
What makes a good communicator? I can only speak for myself but for me, a good communicator has to be a good listener. In order to respond and contribute to a conversation, he needs to hear the details and read the emotions of the one speaking to him.
He also has to have an immunization against that dreaded FOOT AND MOUTH disease. A good communicator weighs his words and chooses them carefully. Why? Because we are told in the Word that reckless words pierce like a sword. OUCH!! Can I hear an, “Amen Sister!” out there? It is the tongue of the wise that brings healing.
So, God is a wonderful listener and therefore an outstanding communicator. However, YOU may not be great at listening to Him. Chances are there is room for improvement when it comes to sharing your personal fears, thoughts, and hopes with the Father. Well, surprise, surprise!! God knows your thoughts even BEFORE YOU THINK THEM! There is no hiding your anger, fear, sorrow, love, or anxiety. Not only does He know your frame, He knows your mind and how you think.
Therefore, talk to Him. He longs for your conversation and desires your attention. He will give you His listening ears and some very wise counsel if you ask for it without doubting. He is only a, “Dear God” away. Call out to Him and visit for a while. You will be glad you did…. And so will He.
