"He who has ears, let him hear."
(MATTHEW 11:15; 13:9; 13:43)
I have witnessed God’s transforming power in the hearts and lives of His people. Often I am stunned at the means He will use to draw His children close to Him. Turning jars of water into wine, calming the raging sea, casting out demons and raising the dead may not be the sort of wonders we see these days, but God is still in the business of working miracles.
Once I met a man who had suffered a stroke and could speak only haltingly. I let him know how badly I felt for his losses, but in his passionate, labored speech, he said, “It’s the best thing that could have happened to me.” I said, “But why?” And he answered, “Because it’s forced me to listen.” He was excited to learn and gain wisdom from people he might have ignored in the past. He was forced to slow down and be still before the Lord. He noted that the Bible tells us eight times, “He who has ears, let him hear.”
We all have the ability to listen. Let’s not miss the teaching in His Word written just for us or the miracles He orchestrates daily right before our eyes.
LOOK AND LISTEN CAREFULLY; YOU MAY BE ABLE TO DISCERN WHERE GOD IS WORKING MIRACLES
