THE EAR THAT HEARETH THE REPROOF OF LIFE ABIDETH AMONG THE WISE.
Do you listen to life, and know that it is from God, telling you to stop, and just rest in him? Or just stop and quiet your spirit? Let me put it another way. When you get that gut feeling to do something, or not do it, do you listen, and trust your instinct? And when you hear that voice, do you understand, and heed it and obey? Or do you do your thing anyway even if you do not have peace doing it?
I trust my gut instinct, or feelings. And I usually listen because I know Christ is in my heart, and He guides me, but I have to listen and obey. Yesterday, on my blog, I wrote briefly, as I meditated on the scripture of Psalms 71:1-6 & 8. I felt, like I needed to take refuge in God. And not for any particular reason, at that point, but I also felt like I was running on empty, to share with you folks. I stated, that I wanted to quiet myself. And I needed to listen to God. So, I did take a day off, to do so. And through out the day, I tried, purposely, to listen to God.
With that goal in mind.
And He did not let me down. He did speak to me, in many ways. Through, His holy word, through, the Holy spirit, and even other Christians, who are friends. My brother Wes a fellow Christian blogger. http://Wessuzawa.wordpress.com

So, I feel like God was quieting my spirit, and just getting me into position. Perhaps, it was a test. But, I knew, that I knew, I had to quiet myself. I had to listen…..
Anyway, toward the end of the evening, I could have gotten into an argument with one of my family members. And for some reason, and I attribute it to God, quieting me down. I did not get caught in that trap, and I did not let any anger or strive be my motivator. It is said, that sometimes that old devil will try to come against the plan of God, and tempt others, when they are trying to do that which is right and in the sight of God. To cause strive, and especially between those we love. In doing so, one can get caught up in anger. And can lose the blessing. So I am aware of that, and did not let the devil get that over me.
Nor did I let my loved ones behavior, get the best of me. I let love win…..
Now, I wasn’t a push over either. I stood my ground, with my loved one. But, I did not get all bent out of shape…so to speak, and if you get my drift. I maintained my composure, and I really do believe, it was because, I felt God quieting me, with peace, and love. Earlier in the day, same thing, with a business transaction, I actually got denied at our bank, to cash checks because of a technicality, the clerk, stood on. Which was somewhat annoying, but I had such sweet peace. Why? Because, I really believe, that when God said, “quiet yourself down today.” I obeyed, and it benefited, me when I needed it. But I only received that, when I prayed, and when I could see, I did not need to run the show, or be the authority. I let God be the authority.
Then this scripture above came to me out of no where, from a piece of paper, that I found in my office, and I meditated on it. As if a sign from heaven. And it brought me truth, to know, that when God speaks to your heart, and corrects you, or instructs you, you need to be acutely aware, that God is doing it for a reason. You need to train your ear, to hear reproof, in other words. You need to trust your gut instinct. You need to know, it is God, guiding you. Especially as you draw close to God. His holy spirit, can speak to you, if you have given your heart to Christ.
I share this, because it proved to me, that I heard God. I heard the promptings of the Holy spirit. Sometimes, I think I know whats best for me, or I think I can handle things. I guess, you could call that pride. But, there are times, I really cannot, I don’t have the fuel, or the energy, to deal with things, when I need to.
Yesterday, was a great example of that. I feel by learning that, I did gain some wisdom. But for me to say, I am wise, would not be humble. I will just leave it to the wisdom of God, and just say, Lord, I am listening…..with this ear, that wants to hear you…..In your wisdom Lord, in your wisdom.

My Prayer of Hope…..
Father, I just thank you, that I learned something by listening, by taking a stand to listen. I heard your voice. Thank you, for instruction, for guidance, for loving me, to show me, by example. That sometimes, I just have to quiet myself and listen. Just another reason, why, I love you Lord. In Jesus name, Amen
DEUTERONOMY 30:20 AND THAT YOU MAY LOVE THE LORD, YOUR GOD, LISTEN TO HIS VOICE, AND HOLD FAST TO HIM. FOR THE LORD IS YOUR LIFE, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU MANY YEARS IN THE LAND HE SWORE TO GIVE TO YOUR FATHERS, ABRAHAM ISAAC AND JACOB.
