Mark 4:24 AMPC: And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you–and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.
My dear friend in Christ, do you know that what you hear and devote your attention to, matters alot in our lives. The Bible says today that the measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you. This is amazing. When you listen more to the word of God and pay more attention to it, you will get more wisdom and virtue added to you.
Look at our world today, there are many things that are actually taking virtually all of our attention every day. From social media to movies to sports etc. Many pay little or no attention to the word of God except on a Sunday. And even on a Sunday, some still find it difficult to pay close attention to the word of God. They are in a hurry to leave the church and get back to socialized life.
My dear friend in Christ, stop complaining that God is neglecting you when you actually are the one neglecting God. Do not seek for Him only when you are in trouble. Get closer to Him now that all is well. So that when the enemy shall come against you like a flood, the spirit will raise a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19. I call you blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: I will pay close attention to the word of God.
- Oh Lord my God, open my ears and understanding.
- Precious Holy Spirit, guide my thoughts every day of my life. In Jesus Name. Amen.
- Please add your personal intentions.
