God is speaking to us ALL THE TIME. Through many different people, (Friends, spouses, bosses, children, etc.) A big deciding factor on whether or not we hear Him is reconciling with the fact that He chooses to speak through imperfect people. Consider this, if God didn’t speak through flawed people, would we ever really believe that He wants to speak through us? It takes humility to hear God speaking through others. It helps us to recognize our humanity and need for grace. Relationships demand that we become humble listeners so that we can in turn, hear God. HOW CAN WE PUT THIS PRACTICE INTO MOTION?: 1.) Be willing to listen. Be open. Admit that we don’t have all the answers and don’t dismiss the voice God is using to speak to us with. 2.) Be vulnerable: Talk about the real issues and hurts so that we can be able to heal 3.) Honor the people God has placed in our lives: See them for the God-given gifts that they are. When we accept this process with humility and persistence, we will understand and accept that God wants to speak through us too.

Has anyone else hit the breaking point? The ways in which we lived before all this seem to finally be catching up with us. It’s taken a long time for our routines and systems to unravel to the point that we are left facing ourselves. What crossroad we are standing at? It seems like it’s HONESTY OR BUST. Do we admit where we are at? Face the fear of opening up? Jesus revolutionized the need for ceremony and facade when He let us in on heaven’s perspective. This is what Jesus said true connection with God looks like. “Yet a time is coming AND HAS NOW COME when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24 What truth might you be avoiding right now What’s at stake if you carry on at breaking point? What if you could be gut level honest in front of God and someone you can trust. A time is coming and has now come. What are we going to do?
