Did You Hear That? -from Pastor Gary

Today’s CMT eNews talks of “Hearing God Speak” and also reminds you of the newest Magic Object Lesson, “What’s Behind the Mask?,” and “Powerful Cut & Restored Rope” giveaway at CMTM!

So, do you hear God speak? When was the last time you heard God speak to you? Can you recognize God’s voice? There were a few of my opening comments from the sermon yesterday morning. In the hurried and sometimes harried world we live, it becomes increasingly vital that we can clearly hear God speak to us. He is daily guiding us, encouraging us, and empowering us for life and ministry.

As you and I allow ourselves to be used in ministry for His kingdom, we must recognize that it is imperative that we hear God direct us in meeting the needs of His children.

First of all, I’d like to encourage you that you CAN hear God speak. It is more than a premise…it is a PROMISE! Consider Jesus’ words in three of the gospels where He says, “Whoever has ears, let them hear.” This is repeated in Revelation which says, “He who has ears, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.” Then again, back in Isaiah, God tells us that we will hear His voice saying, “This is the way.” Christ said that His sheep know and hear His voice.

Expect to hear God speak to you today! Listen and be blessed! In Matthew 13:16 Jesus said, “blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.”

I pray you are blessed today as you hear the guiding voice of God for your life and ministry.
