Brent: are we listening?

Tuesday, October 5, 2021
    [Jesus:] “He who has ears, let him hear.”
    —Matthew 13:9 (NIV)
    ... God is always speaking; He is never still. Just as in prayer it is not we who momentarily catch His attention but He ours, so when we fail to hear His voice it is not because He is not speaking so much as that we are not listening.
    ... Charles H. Brent (1862-1929), With God in the World [1899], London: Longmans Green, 1914, p. 34 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 13:9; 1 Kings 19:11-13; Ps. 85:8; Matt. 13:14-15; John 12:40; Rom. 10:17-18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, sharpen my ears, that I may hear Your word.
