TOPIC: Learning to Listen to God


8“Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you; O Israel, if you would listen to Me!

9“Let there be no strange god among you; Nor shall you worship any foreign god.

10 “I, the LORD, am your God, Who brought you up from the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.

11 “But My people did not listen to My voice, And Israel did not obey Me.

12 “So I gave them over to the stubbornness of their heart, To walk in their own devices.

13 “Oh that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways!

14 “I would quickly subdue their enemies And turn My hand against their adversaries.

15 “Those who hate the LORD would pretend obedience to Him, And their time of punishment would be forever.

16“But I would feed you with the finest of the wheat, And with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”


The Lord wants us to pay attention to Him, but sometimes we ignore His voice and miss His blessings. Learning to listen to God is as important as learning to talk to Him—if not more so. Generally, we find it much easier to rattle off a prayer than to sit quietly and wait to hear what He has to say.

Since two-way conversation is essential in developing a relationship, being able to hear the Lord’s voice is a vital part of the Christian life. Sometimes we have the notion that after being saved, we just automatically know Him. But that is not true in any kind of relationship. Just as we grow to know another person through communication, so we become more intimately acquainted with God through listening and talking to Him.

Not only do we need ears to hear His voice; we also must have discernment to accurately understand what He is saying. Being grounded in the Scriptures sharpens our discernment and protects us from deception. Have you ever considered that neglect of God’s Word is a rejection of Him? The Lord continually calls out, “Oh that My people would listen to Me” (Ps. 81:13). He is ready and willing to speak to those who will humble themselves, take the time to listen, and respond obediently to whatever He says.

Salvation Prayer

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?

If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.

Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

If you prayed this prayer for the first time, we would like to know.  Click here to send us an e-mail or share your testimony.
