Psalm 95:7 - Today, if you would just hear his voice...
Ok, seriously! Do you know what I have going today? I have these important meetings. Then there is the drive. Oh, yes - gotta run by the office before I get away. And then the friends, who had an emergency and won't be available to help, so I have to pick up those responsibilities. Then there is the issue getting people on one page. Coach 30 guys, play cheerleader to some discouraged souls, learn from some experienced and gifted servants. On four hours of sleep.
That is what my heart tells me. And God gets marginalized. So he pleads with me. Take some time for me. Just get your ear trained to hear what I want to say, today. You can hear me, if we tune your instrument.
You won't speak with me? Too much going on? You've crowded me out? Do you know how the Psalm ends?
You won't go into my rest.
This is not just a threat. God is not saying, I'll show you. It is the natural result of living without the only One that can fill my soul.
Speak, Lord. I just have to hear a fresh word from You, today. Not the word from last Sunday. Today.
