This week Bro. Leo teaches how important it is to not only listen to God but also hearing everything God is telling us, processes it our minds and apply it to our hearts.
Hab.2:1 describes the spiritual discipline needed to listen, hear and apply what God is saying to us. The word “reproved” is translated from the Hebrew word “to-kay-khaw’, to-kakh’-ath” which means the act of pleading with, correction, reproof or stating a point. The Lord will guide us into His will if we approach Him with the spiritual discipline of Hab.2:1.
Heb.3:7 warns us that we only hear God if we are listening to Him. When we are not listening to God we are not entering into the rest He has for us in this life (Heb.3:11). Not listening to God will produce doubt, fear, uncertainty, unbelief and a departing of our relationship with Jesus (Heb.3:12).
In Matt.28:19 Jesus gives the disciples the Great Commission, how important was it for them to also hear and apply vs. 20c (I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world) and vs.18b (All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth)?
