Learning To Tune In To God

In summary of Luke 8:8 it says, “Still other seed fell on fertile soil. This seed grew and produced a crop that was a hundred times as much as had been planted!” When he had said this, he called out, “Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”

Bottom Line:
Seed that is sown on good soil will yield an abundant crop.  If you're able to understand this in context to what God word tells us and you allow it to soak in, you’ll be abundant as well.

What this means to me:
I need to be good soil, ready to accept and do something with what I hear from God.  Only then will I be productive for his kingdom.  God speaks and I hear Him through his Word.  He created me for a relationship with Him. This is the whole reason I exist. God wants me to know him intimately.  I won’t be able to have a relationship without communication. The problem is that communication is very easily misunderstood. I've been married to my wife for 26 years and I still don't always hear her or understand her. So if I can't even figure out somebody I've lived with for 26 years, how am I expected to always get it right hearing God?   Rick Warren explains that “The longer you grow in your relationship with the Lord, the easier it is to know when he's talking to you.” The key for me is learning how to tune in to him.  Jesus said in Luke 8:8, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." (NIV) God has given you all the equipment you need to hear him.  In the next few day’s I’ll be reviewing some material that Rick Warren has provided and learn how to tune in to him.  In summary, I need to prepare myself to listen and be ready to do what I hear from God.
