The Devotion of Hearing

Samuel answered, “Speak, for Your servant hears.” —1 Samuel 3:10

Just because I have listened carefully and intently to one thing from God does not mean that I will listen to everything He says. I show God my lack of love and respect for Him by the insensitivity of my heart and mind toward what He says. If I love my friend, I will instinctively understand what he wants. And Jesus said, “You are My friends…” (John 15:14). Have I disobeyed some command of my Lord’s this week? If I had realized that it was a command of Jesus, I would not have deliberately disobeyed it. But most of us show incredible disrespect to God because we don’t even hear Him. He might as well never have spoken to us.

The goal of my spiritual life is such close identification with Jesus Christ that I will always hear God and know that God always hears me (see John 11:41). If I am united with Jesus Christ, I hear God all the time through the devotion of hearing. A flower, a tree, or a servant of God may convey God’s message to me. What hinders me from hearing is my attention to other things. It is not that I don’t want to hear God, but I am not devoted in the right areas of my life. I am devoted to things and even to service and my own convictions. God may say whatever He wants, but I just don’t hear Him. The attitude of a child of God should always be, “Speak, for Your servant hears.” If I have not developed and nurtured this devotion of hearing, I can only hear God’s voice at certain times. At other times I become deaf to Him because my attention is to other things— things which I think I must do. This is not living the life of a child of God. Have you heard God’s voice today?

In our first year of marriage, I realized my husband had a serious problem,then THIS happened

 

It was in our first year of marriage that I realized that my husband Dave had a serious “neck problem.”

We were talking on a beach, when I noticed his problem. You see, every time a beautiful, scantily clad woman would walk by us on the beach, Dave’s neck just couldn’t seem to stop twisting and turning to gawk at these girls as they walked past him – and he continued to watch them all the way down the beach.

Let me tell you, I was mad about it!

SIX MONTHS INTO MARRIAGE, I COULDN’T THINK OF ONE THING THAT I LIKED ABOUT MY HUSBAND – THIS CHANGED EVERYTHING

“Seriously, Dave! I’m standing right here, and you can’t stop yourself from ogling these girls?”

“What are you talking about?” he replied in an innocent tone that I wasn’t buying for even a second.

At first, I seriously thought he was kidding, but I soon realized that this “girl watching” had been such a habit that he didn’t even know he was doing it. Of course, you may be thinking, Who cares? Big deal. He’s not hurting anyone.

Well, in this case, you would be wrong – he was hurting me!

Like so many women – and many men too, for that matter – I didn’t exactly possess the greatest self-esteem when it came to body image. The mirror was not my best friend. Because of this, every time Dave stared at other women in my presence, it felt as though someone was stabbing a knife in my chest. And speaking of chests, I could also hear a lie being told somewhere in my head, saying, If you looked better in your bathing suit, he would only be looking at you!

It was torture for me.

I was only 20 years old, and I so desperately wanted my new husband to only have eyes for me. Outwardly I was angry, but inwardly I wanted to just sit down and cry, because his actions drew all of my insecurities out of their hiding places and into the ugly open air. I went to bed that night trying to turn my mind to anything positive – anything but the shameful thoughts that my body didn’t measure up to Dave’s dreams.

My last thought before my eyes fluttered shut were, Well, Jesus, at least the beach wasn’t full of topless girls. Thanks for protecting me from that!

Little did I know what was coming.

A few years later, Dave and I agreed to lead a mission trip where we would be sharing God’s love with people on the beaches in Sweden. A little known detail was shared with us as we pulled up to our first beach…half the women on the beach would be topless!

Are you kidding me?

The first day we were sitting in a beachside restaurant prepping for our day when it happened. The doorway was suddenly filled with three drop-dead gorgeous, long-legged, buxom beauties. Barbie and her two companions were actually real, live beings – and some kid out there forgot to put their bikini tops on!

The room was instantly quiet – you could have heard a pin drop. I glanced around our table to find that jaws were literally hanging wide open . . . and there may or may not have been drool pooling on the tabletop.

Then suddenly, I remembered my 26-year-old husband sitting next to me, and a rush of fear gripped my heart. I whipped my head around to look at him. The state in which I found him was almost sad – his head was bowed as low as it could possibly go without falling off altogether. I was instantly – albeit temporarily – relieved that his neck problem had not had a sudden flare-up in this exact moment.

To encourage him, I leaned over and sweetly whispered in his ear, “If you lift your head for even one second, you are a dead man!”

As Dave headed out to the beach, I headed to our hotel room to do some serious business with God.

I yelled out to him, “God, you know all of my fears and insecurities. I’ve told you countless times that this would be my worst fear. I’m afraid Dave will be sorry he married me when he could have someone else more voluptuous and beautiful.”

The truth is that as a little girl, I couldn’t wait to grow up and look like Barbie. Instead of transforming into Barbie, I stopped growing and maxed out at 5 feet and 1 inch tall – I was forever destined to be more like Barbie’s kid sister, Skipper.

As I continued my rant, I felt a small whisper collide with my anger. “Ann, can you trust me?”

“No! I can’t trust you! That’s pretty obvious right now!”

But as I continued my tirade, the question kept coming to my mind over and over again. It was relentless: “Ann, can you trust me?”

Finally, exhausted by my fear, anger, and tears, I fell on my knees before God and cried out,

“God, what choice do I have? I will trust you! Please help me. I’m clinging to you as my helper and guide . . . as my Father. I need you not only to help me get through this, but to help Dave get through this too.”

A sense of resolution and strength began to fill my heart, enough that I was able to push the anxiety down a bit. I again tried to take hold of the reminder that Jesus loved me – and that he loved Dave as well – more than I could ever hope for or dream.

I don’t want to sum everything up as if a lifelong problem of fear and anxiety suddenly dissipated after only a short prayer – no, these problems continued, but I had the peace and hope to face them.

That trip was a turning point of sorts. For the first time, Dave began experiencing a real level of success with his neck problem, and for the first time, I started realizing that my worth does not originate, cannot be increased, and certainly is not limited in any way by my physical appearance.

I became more aware than ever of my truest, deepest identity:

I am a daughter of the King of kings and Lord of lords – and he is a very proud and protective Father. I have been made and equipped to carry out a plan that my heavenly Father uniquely crafted for my specific life. I have been made with a purpose and destiny that both satisfy my soul and reflect the love of Christ to the world.

As I look back on that afternoon some 30 years ago, I chuckle at the insignificance of my dilemma. In retrospect, if that were the most difficult thing I had to deal with, my life would be pretty easy.

Since that trip, I’ve been faced with actual life-and-death issues related to my own health, the health of our babies, and the death of my very best friend and sister at the age of 45.

Time and time again in each of these situations, God asked me the same question he asked me years earlier at that topless beach: “Ann, can you trust me?”

It’s never been easy, but I have discovered that yes, I can trust Him. He is always there. He always loves me deeply. He carries me, and He never leaves me. He comforts me and encourages me to keep my eyes on him – I guess you can say that my eyes tend to wander when uncertainty or crises arise.

It’s my own neck problem.

God is calling us to stop leaning on our own understanding of our versions of the ways we think He should lead our lives.

Instead, he keeps asking us, “Will you trust me?”

The invitation is to the complete surrender of allowing him to work His plan – carried out His way – in our lives.

The safest – and also the scariest – place on earth is right in the middle of his plan for you.

Sometimes He does His most miraculous work in the middle of our greatest fear.

Will you trust him with your disappointments?

Your fears?

Your struggles?

Your marriage?

Your kids?

Your life?

The Wisdom Mine

“Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?” (Job 28:20)

In one of his monologues, the patriarch Job compares his search for spiritual understanding to human explorations for metals and precious stones. “There is a vein for the silver,” he said, “and a place for gold….Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone” (vv. 1-2).

These all are easier to find than true wisdom. “It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire. The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold. No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies. The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold” (vv. 16-19).

Neither have animals discovered it. “The fierce lion passed by it….it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air” (vv. 8, 21). “The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me” (v. 14).

“But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?” (v. 12). Job is driven to ask: “Where must one go to find and mine the vein of true wisdom?”

It is certainly “not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought” (1 Corinthians 2:6). The mine of evolutionary humanism that dominates modern education and scholarship will yield only the fool’s gold of “science falsely so called” (1 Timothy 6:20).

Job found true wisdom only through God, and so must we, for only “God understandeth the way thereof…unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding” (Job 28:23, 28). The Lord Jesus Christ is the ever-productive mine “in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3). HMM

Greatness Does Have Its Price

For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God. —1 Thessalonians 2:9

The laws of success operate also in the higher field of the soul—spiritual greatness has its price. Eminence in the things of the Spirit demands a devotion to these things more complete than most of us are willing to give. But the law cannot be escaped. If we would be holy we know the way; the law of holy living is before us. The prophets of the Old Testament, the apostles of the New and, more than all, the sublime teachings of Christ are there to tell us how to succeed….

The amount of loafing practiced by the average Christian in spiritual things would ruin a concert pianist if he allowed himself to do the same thing in the field of music. The idle puttering around that we see in church circles would end the career of a big league pitcher in one week. No scientist could solve his exacting problem if he took as little interest in it as the rank and file of Christians take in the art of being holy. The nation whose soldiers were as soft and undisciplined as the soldiers of the churches would be conquered by the first enemy that attacked it. Triumphs are not won by men in easy chairs. Success is costly.   WTA025-026

Give me a willingness to pay any cost which You may exact in my service for You. Amen.

A Supernatural Radiance

These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. —John 15:11

One distinguishing mark of those first Christians was a supernatural radiance that shined out from within them. The sun had come up in their hearts and its warmth and light made unnecessary any secondary sources of assurance.

They had the inner witness. They knew with an immediate awareness that required no jockeying of evidence to give them a feeling of certainty. Great power and great grace marked their lives, enabling them to rejoice to suffer shame for the name of Jesus.

It is obvious that the average evangelical Christian today is without this radiance. The efforts of some of our teachers to cheer up our drooping spirits are futile because those same teachers reject the very phenomenon that would naturally produce joy, namely, the inner witness…: “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself” (1 John 5:10).

[D]ivine joy is the privilege of all consecrated believers….The world must see the light of heaven in our faces if it would believe in the reality of our religion. ISS089

In the Sanctuary

Luke 12:6, 7

Sanctuary is an interesting word. It is the term used for the central or primary room in a church—a place where people gather in corporate praise, worship and prayer. It is also a place where people can be alone, in a somewhat mysterious way, with their Creator. A sacred place to commune with God. A holy place.

Sometimes the lives we live are hectic, crazy. The treadmill keeps moving. Certain things on our agenda are important and demand immediate attention. But we need to stop from time to time to reflect on our lives, collect our thoughts, work through our priorities.

Many years ago, God instructed Moses to build and furnish a tabernacle for the Israelite people to worship and commune with Him. “Then have them make a sanctuary for Me, and I will dwell among them” (Exodus 25:8). God, dwelling with them. Fellowship and interaction with the Creator. Help in the time of need.

So often we feel lost, confused, totally out of it. We feel alone, as if no one else really cares. We’re desperate because time is at a premium. It always is. As God gave a promise to Moses, He gives a promise to us: that He will be with us.

There’s nothing spiritually wrong with escaping to a coffee place, either alone or with friends. In fact, a nice cafe may be a kind of sanctuary in the middle of a hectic day. A place to unwind, if only for a few brief moments. And it is important to enter God’s house and to regularly worship in the sanctuary of a church. But above all, we need to enter into the sanctuary of God’s presence. David poetically cried out: “My soul thirsts for You, my body longs for You” (Psalm 63:1). Why? What did he really desire in his heart? Only to see “[God] in the sanctuary and [behold His] power and… glory” (Psalm 63:2).

David knew he could find ultimate rest and satisfaction in God’s presence. Are we thirsty for meaning in life? Do we long to retreat from our fast-paced world and run into the presence of God?

David had experienced God’s sanctuary in the past. Many today experience His presence through a peace of mind and heart that only He can bring. It simply takes initiative and a willingness of heart and spirit before Almighty God. Only then will we be able to cope realistically with life. Only then will we experience the fullness of His presence—in the holy sanctuary of the Lord.
