Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. – Isaiah 30:21

How do we open our hearts and ears to the Truth in a world that is full of lies? How might you complete the following statements:

1. I dull the voice of the Holy Spirit when_________________.

Some examples could be –

  • I try to do things myself
  • I feel it’s up to me make the decision
  • I don’t spend time in the Word
  • I am not hearing what I want to hear


2. When I choose to listen to the Holy Spirit, I ___________________. (Have you ever regretted listening to the Holy Spirit? Are we listening fully?)

Some examples could be –

  • I am able to set aside discomfort
  • I am able to communicate better with others
  • I don’t fly off the handle
  • My words have more purpose
  • I will demonstrate restraint
  • I will offer grace


3. Look at your past week. Is there a place where opportunity was missed (where you missed the voice of the Holy Spirit)? Then consider – What would need to be adjusted in you so that you were more prepared to step into the next opportunity? (Be as specific as you can)


Thank you Lord. We pray that this next week we will be more tuned in to You and less on the world. We pray that we will be touched by your goodness. Lord, these days are dark. May we shine bright. Amen.
