Deaf to the Word of God

I’ve heard enough!

An aging lady named Lucy was losing her hearing. A specialist suggested an operation to improve her hearing. But she promptly vetoed the idea, saying: “I’m ninety-four years old, and I’ve heard enough.” Sometimes, we can be just like Lucy when it comes to the Word of God. The longer the preacher preaches, the more often we look at our watch. Or when we read something in the Bible or a devotional that convicts us, we quit reading. Or when the preacher’s words convict, we change churches.

We are deaf to the Word of God because we have a sin problem

We can also be like Lucy as we listen to or read the news. Day after the day the news depicts the same thing. It might be a new story with new people, but the heart of the story is the same: crime, hatefulness, anger, revenge – in a nutshell – it tells story after story of sin. And if you are like me, you’ve heard enough. Our world definitely has a sin problem. But we have a sin problem because we have chosen to be deaf to the Word of God.

We are deaf to the word of God because of a heart problem.

Our world today seems like it has lost its ability to hear the Word of the Lord. But more that a hearing problem, its a heart problem. The population has become self-centered, prideful, calloused and hardhearted. They want nothing to do with God. They have closed their heart, eyes, and ears to the gospel message choosing instead to live the way they want to.

Pray for God to restore hearing to spiritual ears

As Christians, we have a responsibility to both share the good news of Christ and to pray for the lost world that God would restore hearing to their spiritual ears and soften their heats to receive it, and to soften their eyes to see His glory, love, and work in our world. Today would you commit to praying for a co-worker, a family member, a church member, and a friend who needs to know the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and continue to pray for them daily until they surrender their life to Him?

Revival for our world is not too late but it begins with Christians on their knees first getting their own heart and life right with God and then to begin praying for the lost and being willing to boldly share their story of what God has done for them. Revival begins with each one of us (Christians)…would you let it begin in you today?

Revive Us Again, Lord

Our nation and our world need to experience a revival. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their land.” Revival begins with the people of God. We invite you to join us in praying for revival for America and our world.
