Laubach: listening to God

Monday, October 22, 2018
I will listen to what God the LORD will say;
    he promises peace to his people, his saints—
    but let them not return to folly.
    —Psalm 85:8 (NIV)
    The trouble with nearly everybody who prays is that he says “Amen” and runs away before God has a chance to reply. Listening to God is far more important than giving Him your ideas.
    ... Frank C. Laubach (1884-1970), in Frank C. Laubach, Teacher of Millions, David E. Mason, Minneapolis: T. S. Denison & Co., 1967, p. 120
    See also Ps. 85:8; 119:98; Hab. 2:1; Heb. 12:25; Matt. 17:5; Eph. 2:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I hear Your voice.
