Dailies ~ In His Word
May 9, 2019

Let Faith rise up… say the word I will trust the Lord… peace be still ! The song ran through my head and I was drawn to this scripture.

And again He began to teach by the sea. And a great multitude was gathered to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat in it on the sea; and the whole multitude was on the land facing the sea. Then He taught them many things by parables, and said to them in His teaching:
“Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. And it happened, as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the air came and devoured it.  Some fell on stony ground, where it did not have much earth; and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up it was scorched, and because it had no root it withered away. And some seed fell among thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no crop. But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirty-fold, some sixty and some a hundred.
And He said to them, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” Mark 4:1-9
In order for faith to rise up we need to have it in the first place. Where do we get it? From the Holy Spirit and reading the Word of God. As we can see above we need ears to hear to hear what God is saying to our spirit within us.
So what does that mean? It means we need to be alert to hear, not distracted and paying attention to what God has for us to hear.  When we are in church, listening to a sermon is one place to hear from God; it is not the only place to hear form Him. We can find a message from God in anything around us. A movie, a book, someone talking at a business seminar can even give you something to relate to the Word of God when it is in your heart and mind. In order to hear it you have to have it! Faith rises up when we have fed on the Word of God daily, often, consistently. Trust in the Lord will also become a thing that is natural for you to do when you learn how; again, in His Word you gain the proof of reasons to have the peace that passes understanding! 

Do you trust Him with your ears to hear today? Is God giving you a direction or an insight into His Word?
Take the time to think on what you read each day and think on what God wants you to receive from it. Listen for the Holy Spirit nudging you too!

Heavenly Father, give us ears to hear your Word, your direction and Your guidance in all that we do, thank you for directing our path today, in Jesus name, Amen.
