The above question seems to plague most grown ups at some time in our lives. I have noticed that it seems easier for children to hear from God because they are more open to trust and have fewer inhibitions.
Mike Yaconelli wrote about this in his fantastic book Dangerous Wonder. Yac wrote, “Sadly by the time we are adults, most of us have lost our God hearing. We have decided that listening to God is less important than knowing about God. By the time we are grown up, we have jobs and children; the noise of our lives has increased to such a level that we couldn’t possibly hear God because God rarely shouts – He whispers.”
Can you hear the thin silence of God whispering to you? Consider stopping, unplugging and listening to rediscover the joy of being God’s kid again during this holiday season.
