Do our Ears Listen?

Proverbs:  Chapter 18 verse 15

The heart of the discerning

acquires knowledge;

the ears of the wise seek it out.


Dear God I pray today that we may have a more discerning heart,

a heart that yearns for knowledge of you God.

Let our ears listen to your voice

and may we be wiser today

than yesterday to seek your ways.  Amen.

How about that then?  We all do have EARS but do we actually use them as they should be used?  I mean do we really listen when someone is talking to us or do their words go in one ear and straight out the other? 

Ears are meant for us to LISTEN – if we listen properly we may even learn something that we had not known before, that means that hopefully we may be a bit wiser than we were yesterday.

As Christians we are supposed to LISTEN to God our Heavenly Father but how many times do we take time to sit and pray?  Apart from talking to Him with all our wants and maybe complaints about the situation that we are in at the time do we then wait and hear what He would like to say to us?  Well no we don’t – mostly when we do pray we then get up and have a cuppa and start with what ever we want to do for the day.

This is where we need a discerning HEART to listen to God during our Prayer Time.  He is always there, He never sleeps and The Holy Spirit who is in us will help us with our Prayers.

Remember Jesus LOVES us and would like us to have more Knowledge, Wisdom and Discernment but the only way is to read the Holy Bible, even just a bit each day is sometimes enough to learn something else.  Then it is good to share with our Christian friends any new thing that we understand that we did not know before.

With the Knowledge and Wisdom that we have learnt

we can then share some of it with Children or young people.


Have a Lovely Day.

May God our Heavenly Father Bless us

today as we gain more

Wisdom and Knowledge in our daily lives.

This is a Painting that I did, thought it would be a change to put on here for no special reason except you may like to see it.


Proverbs Chapter 4 verse 1

Listen, my sons,

to a father’s instruction;

pay attention


gain understanding.


Yes plese Heavenly Father, help me to listen to your instruction, so that I can receive more understanding today.

The above is from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.


Well there we are….how well do we LISTEN…..to our earthly fathers instruction…..not always very well do we because then off we go to do our own thing.  Not always to our advantage might I say.!

So this makes me think – how well do we LISTEN to God our Heavenly Father.

It is hard to LISTEN to God with so much going on in our lives.  However if we can find a time each day to sit and read part of our Bible then is the time we can sit quietly and LISTEN when we have prayed for something or someone special.  We may not get the answer we want but be assured that if you are a Christian then God has heard your prayers.  So then we wait for His will to be done in the situation that we are praying for.

God Bless you today as you try to LISTEN to God our Heavenly Father.




Today is a New Day


Psalm 1 verse 1

Blessed is the man

that walketh not

in the counsel

of the ungodly…..


Today is a new day, let us not walk in or listen to the counsel of those who are ungodly, let us be guided by The Holy Spirit of Jesus and have a lovely day.


The above is taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’


It is lovely to be guided by the Holy Spirit and not to listen to others who may be advising us in the wrong way.

Sometimes we would rather listen to our friends suggestion that we do things their way.  Well we do all want to do things our own way and think that our friends may be right if it suits us better than waiting on God.

Today is a New Day…….so we can practice trying to listen to The Holy Spirit when we are trying to make a special decision about something.

Let us remember that He is waiting for us to talk to Him and also to ask His help for anything that we are thinking about.  He is always with us and I am sure He loves to help us.

I Hope you have a lovely Day Today remembering – that it is a –

* New Day *

* God  Bless you *
