Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.__________________________
Throughout the Old Testament, God's nearly constant lament about his people is that he has been speaking to them ("Do you not know? Do you not hear? Has it not been told you from the beginning?" - Isaiah 40), and they have not known he was speaking. "Yet they did not listen or incline their ear" (Jeremiah 7:24). I don't want to miss hearing the Voice, whether it whispers or thunders. Every time I've heard it before, it was loving and tender, full of blessing even when it delivered a message to bring me to my knees: challenging, refining, comforting, affirming, anchoring. And so I pray: Lord open my ears that I may release what I have heard, and so hear you, become a listener, and truly hear others.
