Robin Anderson gave a wonderful devotional today about listening for God’s voice. She reminded us that seeking God daily and learning to hear Him whenever He speaks to us is the key to finding joy in the Christian life.
God wants to spend time with you, showing you all the good things He has ready for you. When you share His time, you also share His burden (which is light), and we are blessed with the joy that comes from being with Him.
Robin also reminded us that God is never disappointed in us. God already knew all our sin before He even created time and space, so we can’t “surprise” Him with anything. We must simply acknowledge our sin to Him, and he again trades our heavy burdens for His light one.
Robin also provided a handout where she had “strung pearls” about what it means to rejoice with God. When Hebrew scholars/priests/students would be studying the Law and they found verses that supported each other, they called it “stringing pearls.” She also included a handout with some tools on hearing God and knowing His voice from the enemy’s. I highly recommend you take a moment and read through it!
