When I am intentional about listening to God…
I expect to hear His voice,
I am more attentive to my surrounds and how God might speak,
I find an increased expectancy for God’s active involvement in my life and world.
I begin to hear more, which results in:
An even greater intentionality, expectancy and attentiveness.
Everyday moments of the ordinary, becomes hotspots for the extraordinary.
This influences how I interact with people, for God’s activity and involvement and purposes may include these people, of which I am more sensitive and attuned to.
As a result:
I slow down more,
I listen closer,
I embrace silence,
I hear what’s being said,
I sense what’s behind what’s not being said and
I more acutely discern what’s not being said.
In short, as I increase my intentional posturing before God to be engaged by God, so I become a better listener to those around me…
