Draw Near to Hear

Ecclesiastes 5:1 Walk prudently when you to the house of God; and draw near to hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil. 

This week has been a whirlwind of activity. Happy to know I am alive and well, by all the activity. However, with all the noise, chaos and movement, it has been difficult to hear my Father’s voice. I’ve found myself drifting and not spending still quiet time with Him. During this pandemic it was so easy. Now, not so much. I am finding that unless I keep everything in the right perspective, it is easy to slip into old patterns of busyness. 

There is always an opportunity to draw near to hear from Him. However, there is comfort in knowing He is always there. There is always an opportunity to pray. There is always an opportunity to read His holy word. There is always an opportunity to fellowship with our brothers and sisters. There is always an opportunity to draw near to hear Him, as He is in all our situations of life. He created these opportunities. He created these situations. He knows of the circumstances that we face. 

When we draw near to hear Him, we are directed by His desires for our lives. We are calmed during the many moving parts in which we find ourselves. We can make bold declarations of faith. We can swim upstream and not get caught in the currents that will continue to move at a pace that without His presence in our life, we would find ourselves drowning. When we draw near, the cares of this natural life don’t seem unsurmountable. We discover a blessed journey of learning, growth and strength. So, draw near to Him. 

Draw near to hear Him to thrive. Draw near to hear Him for comfort. Draw near to hear Him for strength. Draw near to hear Him for peace of heart and mind. Draw near to hear Him for direction. Draw near to hear Him for guidance.  Draw near to hear Him to no loosed your way. Draw near to hear Him. Draw near to hear Him. Draw near to hear Him, because He is always there and knows exactly what we need. Draw near to hear Him.
