I HEAR YOU LORD
Most of us have been to a funeral in our lives and these sometimes can be difficult depending on the relationship but in all cases, we go to say goodbye and pay our respects to someone that we knew. In the service we usually hear a summary of how that person lived their lives and we hear tributes to whatever they have done in their lifetime particularly if they have been a Christian there is usually more of what and how they have lived their lives for God, Amen.
They often help us to reflect on the impact they may have made in our own lives particularly if we are Christians, it can sometimes make us think that we will try harder to do more for Father Amen.
We all cry out to Father will you give me ears to hear and eyes to see in the Spirit.
What shall I do Lord? I can’t hear you, Lord.
But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear what you are saying Lord.
17: for I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it and to hear what you hear but did not hear it
Here Jesus is telling us that our eyes and ears are blessed because they do hear, and they do see.
Who is He talking about you, and I look at v17 Here He tells us many prophets and righteous men longed to see but did not well we are prophets and righteous men so why are some of us saying we do not hear and see in the Spirit?
Use your faith!
Jesus went to a cross to give us these gifts are we using them?
CAN YOU JUST Believe
I hear you, Lord.
Sometimes we just need to slow down take a deep breath and dig into our Spirit to listen to what He is saying Amen.
Psalm 46:10 (TPT)
Surrender your anxiety.
Be still and realise that I am God.
I am God above all the nations.
And I am exalted throughout the whole earth.
Let’s look at some of Jesus’ life here on earth.
Jairus came to ask Jesus to come and heal his daughter who was dying and
As Jesus was going with him the woman with the issue of blood touched Him and this delayed his journey and while Jesus was still speaking to the woman news came that Jairus’s daughter had died.
Why bother the teacher anymore and just look at what Jesus said to Jairus.
Don’t be afraid just believe.
Now interesting to note here at this point that Jairus said nothing.
perhaps we should be sitting with Jesus in our circumstances, just sitting listening to what He is saying in the quietness of our minds.
be still and know that I am God.
Believing His word about the circumstances we are in and standing on what He has already said.
They then proceeded to Jairus’s home and please note he did not let anyone follow Him except his disciples and when He got there the people laughed when he said Jairus’s daughter was just sleeping so he put them out and then he raised her from the dead.
God cannot do anything for you when you doubt and have unbelief, he put out all the unbelievers from Jairus’s home he did not let any unbelievers follow Him to Jairus’s home.
Jesus went to a cross to give us hope trust and belief. Through Him.
Can you just believe?
I hear you Lord
Use your faith.
Be still and know that He is God
Now in this same passage let’s look at the woman Jesus stopped to talk to who was healed of an issue of blood she had had for 12 years.
She used her faith.
Jesus was on His way to Jairus’s daughter and this woman against all odds of the environment she lived in because she was classed as unclean and, in those days, they had to live in isolation, yet she knew if she could touch Jesus she would be healed.
Jesus went to a cross to a cross to give us these victories. Through Him.
Can you Just believe?
I hear you Lord
Let’s look at another account of how Jesus handled another situation with the woman caught in the act of adultery.
Just think for a moment and ask us what Jesus was doing when He was writing in the sand.
5: In the law Moses commanded us to stone such woman “now what do you say”
6: they were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing Him.
7: But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with His finger. When they kept on questioning Him, he straightened up and he said to them “if any one of you is without sin let him be the first to throw a stone at her.
8: Again, he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
Twice Jesus wrote on the ground.
Twice Jesus was silent, and I think that in that silence he was communicating with His Father in heaven.
I have not spoken on my own, but the Father, who sent me has commanded me what to say and how to say it.
Jesus was silent so he could communicate with His Father in heaven to get guidance for the situation He was in when we do not retaliate in a heated situation the silence works in our favour and we can be communicating with the Holy Spirit for guidance, look at the result Jesus got through listening to His Father, and we have the same access amen.
Jesus went to the cross to give us this access. Through Him.
Can you just believe?
I hear you, Lord.
Sometimes we can react to our circumstances before we engage with our Father in heaven and forget that He is with us always.
Always at work
Always working on our behalf
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear, do not be afraid of them, for the Lord your God He is the one who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
Says the same thing.
Be content with what you have because God has said,
Never will I leave you.
Never will I forsake you.
He Has promised us He will never leave or forsake us.
Jesus went to the cross to give us this security through Him.
Can you Just believe I hear you, Lord?
