The Importance of Listening to God

Prayer allows for man to hear God’s voice. Prayer is God enabling the believer to hear from Him. Prayer is meant for one to listen to God and that should be an honour. If you are called to pray, you are called to listen. When we go to God we go to die, to die to self. Self has no place in the kingdom of God. Many of our prayers are never answered because of the great measure of self in them. We are commanded by God to love Him with all our heart. Deuteronomy 6.5-6 ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.’

God desires the glory and for man to listen and then do brings glory to God. This is the purpose of man. If all glory belongs to God, then there must a great deal of listening and seeking after God. Prayer does so, for it gives man the opportunity to glorify the Lord.

Remember that you are unique in the eyes of the Lord. Gods’ purpose for you is therefore special, of which He holds the key.

For Heaven to release, we must first desire as God desires. This desire is the work of the Lord. It is placed there by God.

When this yearning has been placed there in the heart of man it is then the duty of man to bring it back to God. It is still the duty of the believer to show that he is in agreement with God for that which God has placed in him. We express this in our praying and worship before God.

Watch and Pray!
