Devotional - Tuesday, December 26, 2017 360/5

Today's Scripture: "As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly and came to Him." John 11:29 
6035. First responders are worthy of praise, but someone had to call them. JG

See it.

Show up not off

Live it.

With a child as our example (I Samuel 3), we know that God doesn’t speak to everyone. Samuel heard directly from God so it was important. When Eli, the priest, heard what God told Samuel, he knew the message was for him. Years later, Samuel could say the message was intended for both he and Eli. It appears a person can lose a direct connection to God when he stops depending on God to speak.

In a similar way, Mary raced to see Jesus when someone told her He was in the house. But Martha heard His plans firsthand because she was looking for Him. Here's what we can take from this example: If you expect to hear from God and don't spend time with Him, then you can look for Him to talk to you through someone else.

Pray it.

God, thank You for another day to listen and look for You in everything I see and do.
