“My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.” (Proverbs 4:20-23)
“Incline your ear to my sayings” Think about this, we listen to so many people during the course of our lives, yet the Words of Almighty God are the greatest words that we can listen to. Jesus said in (John 6:63) “that the Words that He speaks to us are spirit, and they are life.”
The word incline means to tilt, to tip or slant. I love this, we’re to tilt our ear to the Word of God. Have you ever been with someone and you couldn’t hear them really well? What did you do? Most likely you tilted your ear towards them so you could hear them better. I sometimes do this with my wife when it’s noisy and I couldn’t hear her. This is what God want us to do concerning His Word.
As we read the Word, or hear it being preached, let’s tilt our ear towards it so we get the fullness of God’s meaning out of it. Jesus said it like this in (Mark 4:9) “And He said to them, ‘He who has ears to hear, let him hear!’” Sometimes we hear, but we don’t hear. We hear everything that our mind has going, but we don’t hear what God wants us to hear and that hinders us.
So today, lets make a decision to tilt our ears to hear His voice speaking through His Word.
Heavenly Father, I tilt my ear toward your Word. I promise to give it my full attention and listen to what the Spirit is saying to me. Your Word is life to me and I want to continue to fill myself with it. I thank you for always being here to guide me and look out for me.. You God are so good and I am so grateful for all You have done for me. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
