Guided by God

Matthew 7:24
“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.”

Listening to Jesus’ words means more than just hearing them. Listening implies we are letting His words settle into our minds and hearts…and that they are making a difference in our lives. Notice how Jesus also requires action on His words. Are you making it a regular practice to listen to Jesus’ words in scripture? Then after listening…are you acting on the messages He gives you in your heart? If you do…Jesus promises that you will have a sense of peace and security deep inside…even amidst the storms that life will inevitably bring. You will be acting on your calling and on the path of discovering your true self.
