Stop! Look! Listen!

John 16:12-15 (NKJV)

 12 I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.

       We are all children of God.  As a new school year has started we can all remember that at the beginning of the year we were reminded to stop, look and listen!  Bus safety, traffic at school, and a new environment in all areas of our journey are all areas we needed to be made aware of in the new season.  We needed to slow down and be attentive to what was going on around us at all times.

In our journey with the Lord do we stop, look, and listen to what He wants to show us?  We need to take time daily to pray and read the Word so we are prepared in our daily journey.  The Holy Spirit wants to show us and guide us to see what our heavenly Father wants to show us.  We have to slow down and take time out of our day for Him.  We can only understand what He wants to show us if we stop from distractions, look at His Word, and listen to His instruction.

So please start today if you do not have a quiet time with the Lord.  You will truly see and hear all that He has for you when you spend time with Him.  In all that you learn and do give Him all the glory!
