CONVERSATIONS: LISTENING TO GOD’S WORDS
By Karen Pourbabaee

My dad and I shared thousands of conversations through the years. I gained his advice, insight, wisdom, and comfort. Journeying through Alzheimer’s his last thirteen years, treasured talks became impossible. But his words are tucked away in my heart, and when least expected, some of those words enliven my day and enlighten my way!

Our Father also wants to hide His Word in our hearts. But first we must have a conversation. Sit still in His presence and listen. His words are the most important conversation we need to hear. And in listening we come to know Him and receive His gifts.

One gift given by His Word is comfort. With comfort, hope is birthed and peace is possible again. Those promises are found in Psalm 119:

V49:”Remember Your Word to Your servant, by which You give me hope.”
V54: “When I recite Your edicts of old, I am comforted, Lord.”
V165: “Lovers of Your teaching have much peace…”

Counsel is a second valuable gift of conversation with the Father. His Word gives us insight, understanding, and direction. God will show us the path to take in this uncertain world. Again, Psalm 119 confirms that promise:

V24: “Your decrees are my delight, they are my counselors.”
V104: “Through Your precepts I gain insight.”
V105: Your Word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.”

Listen closely and hide His Word in Your heart. You will find His promise of comfort and counsel to enliven your day and enlighten your way!
