I recently heard a prominent radio minister, promoting a book. This book was written for the purpose of learning, in thirty days, how to devote fifteen minutes a day to the Lord. The book thoroughly covers this issue in three hundred and ninety pages.
I also heard recently, another minister, name four different books we could read, in order for us to know the will of God.
“Without faith it is impossible to please, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6
We have come to believe, we hear the words of God by reading. Our hearing is not established on how much we read, but on how much we hear. Only when hearing takes place, is our faith is established.
“So faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17
The question you may be asking is What must I do then, to hear the word of God?
Those who are in Christian ministry as a career, are able to devote several hours a day, to saturating themselves with the word of God. This is one way to hear the word of God.
Those who are employed in others means as a career, do not have the time, to devote several hours a day, to saturate themselves with the word of God.
In order to hear the word we must practice meditation. The practice of meditation requires us to employ our memory. When we employ our memory, both sides of your brain are activated. The value we gain through this practice, helps bring balance to our hearing. Thus helping us to navigate through scripture. Thus we begin to hear the word of God. Meditation is a second way for us to hear the word of God. This is “God’s Faithfulness”.
Our founding fathers of this great nation, by whatever measures they may have used, heard the word of God. Their character, (which some say today is not important) was shaped by this hearing. History speaks for its-self as to the effectiveness, these Godly men and women had, on the civilized society we once enjoyed.
The word of God is never outdated, it is eternal. Through hearing it, our faith will be established. We learn God’s manifold wisdom and how best to make known, His will, for the age and culture in which we live. Our founding fathers had no greater means of Godliness than we have today. They simply used their liberty in Christ to bring to light, Godly administration in government. We are here for such a time as this. That we might learn to hear the word of God, and see “God’s Faithfulness”.
