A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

While you spend much time listening to secular music, the news, and entertaining shows, do you take time to hear the word of God?

Are your ears and eyes, the ports of entry to your brain, not open to the word of God?

Are you deceiving yourself, thinking that you are of God, although you don't hear His word?

DAY # 219

TODAY’S REQUEST:

TO HEAR GOD'S WORDS:

" HE WHO IS OF GOD HEARS GOD'S WORDS;

THEREFORE YOU DO NOT HEAR, BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT OF GOD."

John 8:47 "He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God."
1 John 3:10 In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.
Matthew 7:24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
Matthew 7:26 "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:
John 18:37 Pilate therefore said to Him, "Are You a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."
1 John 4:5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

BY HEARING AND SUBMITTING TO GOD’S WORDS

John 12:47-50 "And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 "He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him – the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. 49 "For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. 50 "And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak."
Revelation 3:20 "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
John 5:24 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
