Today’s Inspiration: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17. The Power of Love is to hear. Restoration is to hear. Reconciliation is to hear. Healing comes from hearing the Word of God. What we hear daily is more important than what we see.
Obedience is better than sacrifice because God is not just seeing what we do but is how we hear and obey His commands. Many homes are broken because of Pride, Anger and Jealousy. Why? We look brightly at what people had done wrong or sin, but not at what people had suffered and is struggling with.
Jesus saw the suffering of the prostitute but the Pharisee saw only the sins of the woman. The Pharisee was questioning and doubting Jesus but the Prostitute was worshiping and anointing Jesus with her priciest oil. One is only using his eyes to see and judge but the Woman was using her heart to bless and receive forgiveness. Jesus taught,” He who forgives little, loves little.” Luke 7:47 Family reconciliation can only manifest through humility, submission, and forgiveness. Remember people will not feel love when you keep talking but their hearts will be touched when you start listening. Praise God!
Prayer: O Lord My God, your sheep hears your voice, and you know me, and I follow you through your still small voice. Let me be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger. Guide me to hear with love, faith and hope like you do, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
