[QTVOTD] Listening intently…

“Incline your ear [submit and consent to the divine will] and come to Me; hear, and your soul will revive; and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with you, even the sure mercy (kindness, goodwill, and compassion) promised to David.” Isaiah 55:3 ->me: Incline your ear…a deliberate listening and receiving of what you hear and in response running to the Almighty God. What is promised to those who hear and come (which is all they need to do)? -> True life; the opposite of thirst, hunger, and lack of satisfaction! Jesus said this Himself in John 5:24 – “I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the person whose ears are open to My words [who listens to My message] and believes and trusts in and clings to and relies on Him Who sent Me has (possesses now) eternal life. And he does not come into judgment [does not incur sentence of judgment, will not come under condemnation], but he has already passed over out of death into life.” Do you hear that?? When I ‘hear’ my soul is woken up and God says He WILL make an everlasting covenant with me…to include the same promises made to King David! Listening is active – I cannot daydream about earthly exploits – I must focus intently as I wait and listen to my God through His word and prayer EVERY day.
