Wait to Hear

Hab 2:1 "I will stand on my guard post And station myself on the rampart; And I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me, And how I may reply when I am reproved."

Today we need to cry out o God and lay everything at His feet. Let go of the fear, the pressure, the doubt, the expectations, the stresses of life. Take your life, your failures, your shortcomings, your weaknesses and shout them out to God and get it all out. Have the courage to stand up before God and say everything your thinking and feeling. Then quit your spirit and wait.

Take up your place on the rampart, on the watchtower and wait for God to speak. Brace yourself and be prepared for God to correct and reprove you. Know that all the miserable failures that you laid at His feet deserve to be laid at your feet, but know that He takes it all because He is merciful, gracious, and loves you. He takes our fears and gives us love in return. He takes failure and gives us a miracle. He takes our complaining voice and gives us His voice that speaks life and wholeness and truth.

Step up and brace yourself to hear His truth. Let His voice transform you and make you new. Let Him write His love on your life and His purpose in your heart. Let His response, sound in your heart with joy and hope.
