INCLINE YOUR EAR TO MY SAYINGS

INCLINE YOUR EAR TO MY SAYINGS

Proverbs 4:20-23 (NKJV) 20 My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.

Ok, let us move on to the next part of verse 20: “Incline your ear to my sayings.”  Think about this: we listen to so many people during the course of our lives, yet the Words of Almighty God are the greatest words that we can listen to.  Jesus said in John 6:63 that the words that He speaks to us are spirit, and they are life.

The word incline means to tilt, to tip, or slant.  I love that!  We are to tilt our ear to the Word of God.  Have you ever been with someone, and you could not hear them really well?  What did you do?  Most likely, you tilted your ear towards them so you could hear them better.  This is what God wants us to do concerning His Word.

As we read the Word, or hear it being preached, let us tilt our ear towards it so we get the fullness of God’s meaning out of it.  Jesus said it like this in Mark 4:9: “And He said to them, ‘He who has ears to hear, let him hear!’”  Sometimes we hear, but we do not truly hear.  We hear everything that our mind has going, but we do not hear what God wants us to hear, and that hinders us.  

So today, make a decision to tilt your ear to His voice speaking through His Word.

Confession:   Today, I tilt my ear towards God’s Word.  I give it my attention, and I listen to what the Spirit is saying to me.  His Word is life to me, and I fill myself with it.
