As I walked in the lobby of my doctor’s office I heard an elder man speaking to a woman about God, he said one thing in particular that caught my ears, “God can get everybody to obey Him except for humans.” When I heard this I saved it to the notepad in my phone because I felt the inspiration behind it.
James 1: 19 say “… you must be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger.” Later on that day I was sitting in my Mass Communication class and my teacher said, “Do you know the difference between listening and hearing, hearing is experiencing the sound, while listening is comprehending what you heard.”
Noah told the people get their lives together because the rain was coming, they ignored him, but those animals followed him onto that boat. Jesus even had control over the water on the sea, He told it to be still and that it did. If humans are supposed to be the smartest beings on earth, why is it that animals obey God’s word, when humans just ignore it?
James 1:22 goes on to say “Don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise you are fooling yourself. God talks to us in so many ways, thru the TV, the radio, and even strangers in the doctor’s office. But if we don’t listen to what He is saying and obey His word, we are wasting our sense of hearing.
