You Have To Want To Hear from God

"You will search again for the LORD your God. And if you search for him with all your heart and soul, you will find him." (Deuteronomy 4:29 NLT)

You're not going to hear God unless you really, really want it. I'm not saying it's an option. I'm not saying it would be nice. It is a necessity!

God won't tell you about his dream for your life if he knows you'll want to debate it. God doesn't tell you what he put you on Earth to do just so you can say, "Let me think about it."

No! It's got to be a necessity. You have to say, "I've got to know why I'm here. I've got to know what you want me to do with my life. I've got to hear your voice. I've got to have your vision."

King David wrote in the book of Psalms, "My God, I want to do what you want" and "What I want most of all and at all times is to honor your laws" (Psalm 40:8 NCV, Psalm 199:20 CEV).

David was passionate in his declaration that what he wanted most of all was to honor God. Being obedient and following God were not options for him. It was the only thing David wanted to do. He used words for seeking God like, "I long for it," "I crave it," "I hunger for it," and "I'm like a dear panting for water."

When you get that desperate, you're going to hear from God.

A lot of people talk to God, but they never hear from God. For them, prayer is a monologue. But you can't have a relationship when it is wrapped up in a monologue from you. What if a talk to my wife, but she never talks to me? That's not a relationship. You've got to have a conversation. Just as important as talking to God in prayer is listening to God and letting him talk to you. How does that happen? First, you've got to want it more than anything else.

Deuteronomy 4:29 says, "You will search again for the LORD your God. And if you search for him with all your heart and soul, you will find him" (NLT). Guaranteed!

Talk It Over

  • What is the thing you want most in life? How does your life reflect that longing?
  • Would you say that you are passionate for Christ? How can you cultivate passion for God in your life?
  • With what attitude do you usually ask God for direction? Are you prepared to respond in obedience?
