If You Are Going to Listen to God, You Start By Listening to Those Around You

“If a person cannot understand what man says to him, how can he possibly understand what God is speaking to him? If he cannot hear clearly the words spoken by people who sit close by, how can he hear God who speaks within him from heaven? If he cannot understand man’s audible words, how can he understand God’s words spoken to his spirit?” – Watchman Nee “The Character of God’s Workman

Are you a good listener? It starts with listening to those around you. When you do, your ears will tune in to discern God’s direction more clearly, His Word will come alive more richly and you will become more and more aware of God’s presence in your life when you make yourself available to those around you.
