Let us be silent that we may hear the whispers of God. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20
God wants to be heard–but what is our role?
See, my children, the knocking rests upon no merit of yours—though it is in response to the longing of your heart for Me.
Keep, keep that listening ear. “If any man will hear my voice.” Again no merit of yours. Only the ear bent to catch my tones, and to hear the sound of my gentle knocking. —God Calling
How do we keep “the listening ear?”
