Good morning brothers and sisters. There is something that is written in the Bible that I truly didn't understand for most of my life. The statement is: He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says. Now this is in Revelations when Jesus is speaking to the churches. But it is also throughout the Bible. In my finite mind, I would say, "Lord, you made all humans with two ears and we can hear." Now don't get me wrong, I know people are born deaf. It was one day, I had that "aha" moment. Jesus was not speaking of our physical ears. He was talking about the ears of our hearts. It occurred to me that when I open the ears of my heart, it is in that moment I can truly understand what the Spirit is saying. And when I let the Spirit take control, I filter my life through Him is when I understand. I think we seem to forget that the same Holy Spirit is within all of us. It is not a different Spirit. It is only when we all open the eyes and ears of our hearts that we will see and hear what Jesus truly meant. We don't have to guess. We don't have to interpret. It is there. I think I relied on what others thought it meant for so long that I didn't seek and find for myself. It is a personal relationship with Jesus. It is a family. It is a way of life. So why don't we all open they eyes and ears of hearts and hear what the Spirit has to say. The Holy Spirit will not contradict itself from one person to another. We will all have the same. And if we differ, that is when we come together and pray. We study together. We seek His face together. I am growing more aware of this scripture. 1 Corinthians 1:26-27: For you see your calling brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;. Guess what? I am the foolish. I am the weak. And God still chose me. So open up to what He has for you. You think it is foolish, you may think you are not strong enough. BUT!!!! If God has called you, He will source you. Rise up child of God, rise up!
