So many do not listen . . .
- to others
- to Me
I AM searching for those who choose to listen–really listen.
Accept who you are and move on to others; for when you accept yourself, you have time for another, and another, and again . . . another.
You are not busy speaking of yourself, to affirm yourself through another. You are, rather, listening to them–affirming them.
I need you to do that–will you listen?
As you take on the active role of a listener, I AM revealing to you their need. Not to expose them, but to reveal the needed seed.
- Food for the multitudes.
- Bread for the eater.
For they are hungry–meet the need . . . plant a seed.
You are not required to meet their every need, not even many. Just plant a seed. You will know them, for they will be hungry!
Give them fresh bread.
Meet the need.
“Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11
“‘Because the poor are despoiled, because the needy groan, I will now arise,’ says the Lord; ‘I will place him in the safety for which he longs.’ The promises of the Lord are promises that are pure, silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times.” Psalms 12:5-6
“The end of all things is at hand; therefore keep sane and sober for your prayers. Above all hold unfailing your love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sins. Practice hospitality ungrudgingly to one another. as each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace; whoever speaks, as one who utters oracles of God; whoever renders service, as one who renders it by the strength which God supplies; in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 4:7-11
“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature. For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” II Peter 1:3-11
“Do thou, O Lord, protect us, guard us ever from this generation. On every side the wicked prowl, as vileness is exalted among the sons of men.” Psalms 12:7-8
“The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know thy name put their trust in thee, for thou, O Lord, hast not forsaken those who seek thee.” Psalms 9:9-10
