Listening for God

Luke 12:35-40         
35 “Be dressed for service and keep your lamps lit. 36  Be like people waiting for their master to come home from a wedding celebration, who can immediately open the door for him when he arrives and knocks on the door. 37  Happy are those servants whom the master finds waiting up when he arrives. I assure you that, when he arrives, he will dress himself to serve, seat them at the table as honored guests, and wait on them. 38  Happy are those whom he finds alert, even if he comes at midnight or just before dawn.[a] 39  But know this, if the homeowner had known what time the thief was coming, he wouldn’t have allowed his home to be broken into. 40  You also must be ready, because the Human One[b] is coming at a time when you don’t expect him.”

If you want to know what God is doing in your life, you may have to wait and listen. It may take all your patience. For, you see, God’s action does not begin with the blare of a trumpet or a flash of lightning. Instead you must pay attention to an unheard inner voice. That’s right, it almost doesn’t make sense. However, when you attend to that which is deep within you, you will find yourself on holy ground. Therein is God’s habitat. As you grow in your capacity to notice deep-seated nudges and urges within you, you will begin to hear them as invitations / calls / insistences being voiced within you in the name of God. Perhaps. This is the very process (the God-process) by which you maintain your connection to Yeshua, the True Child of Humanity, who awakens and calls forth the best of humankind in each of us.
