Purpose to Hear Him, Even If It Is Not What You Want to Hear

Several years ago, my wife and I were trying to decide if we should move from a small town into the big city of Denver. It was gut wrenching decision for me. I liked the small town, rural lifestyle. I didn’t want to move. However, I knew that God the Father would have a plan and would speak to me about this decision. I decided in my heart to make myself available to hear His voice. I decided to be available to hear, even if I didn’t get the answer I wanted.

Well. . . sure enough, He said we needed to move to Denver! Just what I didn’t want to hear! But it was a clear voice and I knew it was Him. Each of you must be available to hear His voice. You must purpose in your heart to hear even what you don’t want to hear. That is being truly available to hear the heart of God.
