It will stop you from making mistakes…

It is so important to really hear GOD speak because it protects me from mistakes.

The Bible says in Job 33.14, 17-18 (LB), “GOD speaks...causing them to change their minds, and keeping them from pride, and...from falling into some trap.” 

If you listen, GOD will warn you in advance and you’ll avoid a whole lot of mistakes in life, if you really start tuning into GOD.  He’ll tell you.

A few years back, I had the opportunity to go to another church from where I was pastoring at the time.  It was a larger church and I went and interviewed with the board and they gave a unanimous vote to bring my name before all the members.  On the Saturday night right before they were to vote on us on Sunday morning, I was in deep prayer and I had within me a deep sense that this was a mistake, that it just wasn’t right, so I called my superior and told him I was sorry but I didn’t want them to vote on me. 

I know beyond all doubt that it would have been a big mistake.  I was where GOD wanted me at the time.  GOD stopped me from making a big mistake.

I can’t tell you how many times I have been saved from making major mistakes.  If you listen to GOD it will save you a lot of mistakes.

Just a thought from the front porch…
