My Upmost For His Highest

The Discipline of Hearing



Whatever I tell you in
the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on
the housetops
—Matthew 10:27

Sometimes God puts us through the experience and discipline of
darkness to teach us to hear and obey Him. Song birds are taught to sing
in the dark, and God puts us into "the shadow of His hand" until we
learn to hear Him (Isaiah 49:2 ). "Whatever I tell you in the
dark. . ."— pay attention when God puts you into darkness, and keep your
mouth closed while you are there. Are you in the dark right now in your
circumstances, or in your life with God? If so, then remain quiet. If
you open your mouth in the dark, you will speak while in the wrong mood—
darkness is the time to listen. Don’t talk to other people about it;
don’t read books to find out the reason for the darkness; just listen
and obey. If you talk to other people, you cannot hear what God is
saying. When you are in the dark, listen, and God will give you a very
precious message for someone else once you are back in the light.After
every time of darkness, we should experience a mixture of delight and
humiliation. If there is only delight, I question whether we have really
heard God at all. We should experience delight for having heard God
speak, but mostly humiliation for having taken so long to hear Him! Then
we will exclaim, "How slow I have been to listen and understand what
God has been telling me!" And yet God has been saying it for days and
even weeks. But once you hear Him, He gives you the gift of humiliation,
which brings a softness of heart— a gift that will always cause you to
listen to God now.

We come to you and thank you for all
the good things you have given us today - our health, family, work and
leisure. We thank you too for the things that make our lives difficult
and ask that in these situations you will help us grow nearer to you and
make us understand that through them we will be stronger. We bring this
new day to you and ask that whatever may happen, your will be done,
even if it means sacrifice on our part. We remember you did not shirk
your responsibilities when it came to saving us. May it be that we too
will be faithful in reaching out to someone today. Lord we bring our
world to you and ask that where there is no love, you will reveal
yourself to those who need you. Where there is war, peace will come.
Where there is hunger, people will be fed. And where there is no hope,
people will find hope in you.

Lord while you are meeting the needs of your world today I pray that you
will continue to pour your spirit over me. In the name of Jesus.
