?For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.?
Depending on where you have been in your life, at some time or another you will probably find that the opinions of men are a dime a dozen about what you should do and how you should be. ?If we are not strong in the knowledge of what the Word of God says about us, what God says we should do and His desires for us then we can be deluded into the lies of others. ?Opinions are not innately an bad thing. ?There is good counsel which we need. We need others to encourage us to help us along the way. But thoughts are not in alignment with the heart of God are a complete waste of our thought life.
God wants to get the ?goop? out of our ears and out of our head. In a vision I saw someone pulling goop out of their ear. It was literally like thick slime goop that, as the person pulled, it just kept coming out. It was amazing just how much goop was coming out. I also saw that is was the power of the living Word of God that was bringing deliverance in this vision. As scripture was being sung it was taking root in the heart and?mind then also causing this goop to come out of the head. When we put melody to the Word of God it can make the words that much more effective in our lives, catching our hearts causing faith to rise.
?So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word
Faith comes by hearing and by hearing the Word of God. Whatever words we listen to and take seriously we are putting weight in, our faith then goes that direction. It is so important for us to be solid in the truth of God?s Word concerning us and His call for our lives personally. God wants our ?earways? to be clear to hear His voice clearly. As we abide in His Word with yielded hearts and receive from the waters of His Presence He will keep our spiritual ears open to hear the good He intends and the plans that He has for us.
?I will worship toward Your holy temple,
And praise Your name
For Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.?
God is looking for us to have a faith that says, ?I believe!? When we believe His Word it is life changing. God wants to take it from the pages of the Book and make it alive in our hearts.
