Topic: Obedience (01/31/05)

Obedience. Obedience. The word is tossed about my head and seems to overwhelm my thoughts. I break it down and hear it slowly said, O----- be----- and suddenly there is inspiration. Obedience requires a heart that is willing to listen but in order to listen it must first learn to hear. I know that I often disappoint my Father with my acts of disobedience. Could it be that the everyday business that I have created is crowding out His voice? I am reminded of the well known verse: "Be still and know that I am God". I quietly take time to digest this.

"Be still and know that I am God. . ."

"Be still and know that I am. . ."

"Be still and know that. . ."

"Be still and know. . ."

"Be still and. . . "

"Be still. . ."

"Be. . ."

In His quiet way He fills in the blanks and I can hear His voice! With a heart committed to obedience I can now respond: "Speak Lord, for your servant listens".

Very reflectivive. This piece would be an excellent daily devotion. Sometimes it all comes down to just the word "be", doesn't it?

I agree that we need to train our ears to listen before we can obey. A short piece but very thought provoking.

I truly like the visual appeal of breaking down that Bible verse... Good job. God bless,
