prayer quote #8

So today I was thinking about what it means to hear God’s voice and the earplugs that prevent us from hearing His voice. I asked my flatmate, “What do you think are those ear plugs?” She replied, “Pride and impatience.” She is absolutely right!

When we think we know it all and have it all figured out, we stop asking God what He wants from us – we become self-sufficient. And when we are impatient, we think that God is not listening and fail to trust His timing and that way we take matters in our own hands the way Saul carried out the sacrifice (which was not his role) because ‘Samuel was late’.  (1Samuel.13:8-12)

May God grant us humility and patience, and the ears to hear His voice. Amen.
