Listening...


Then the Lord said to me, “The prophets prophesy lies in my name. I didn’t send them. I didn’t command them. I didn’t speak to them. They prophesy to you a lying vision, divination, and a thing of nothing, and the deceit of their own heart. Jeremiah 8:14

Lord, I wait, in the silence.
Listening.
Straining every nerve.
Wanting to hear your word.
Not wanting to miss a single syllable
Eager to comprehend every nuance.
Until you speak I will wait.
I will listen.
May I not speak with my own agenda,
eager to prove a point.
Instead, let my words be from you.
True
holy
pure
Not seeking human approval.
Come Holy Spirit.
Make it clear to me
what you want your people to hear.
