A Frosty Double Quarter Pounder w/ Cheese

To the far west of F3 Lexington is where YHC took the Q this morning.  It was a pleasure seeing some guys that I normally don’t get to see and to meet a few new faces.  Twelve men defied the warmth of the fartsack and joined in for their daily dose of betterment.  A good time was had by some. I will say that this campus has a lot to offer when it comes to delivering a beatdown.  I plan to return soon.  Overall this is a great group and you can tell they are a close knit group.  Thanks for the hospitality. Merry Christmas to you all.

Below is what went down.

Conditions: Frosty, 28

Devo: Listening to God, Charles Stanley

Psalm 81:8-14

Does the heavenly Father still speak to His children? It’s a question that may be on your mind right now. We all have this need to know the Lord is still communicating with us. We crave the certainty that He hears us—and answers.

In today’s reading, we get a clear picture of God’s heart: He yearns for Israel to listen to Him. Think about that. Here’s the almighty Creator of the universe, pleading with His chosen people to hear His voice. It doesn’t make sense, does it? Why on earth would the Israelites turn a deaf ear to their sustaining, omnipotent heavenly Father?

However, God’s message is sent to inattentive ears. He says, “O Israel, if you would listen to Me! … But My people did not listen to My voice, and Israel did not obey Me” (Psalm 81:8Psalm 81:11).

Thousands of years later, I’m certain that same question still rings through heaven. We can practically hear the Lord saying, “Oh, church, if only you would listen to Me. But My church did not listen to My voice. Oh, that My church would listen to Me!”

Have you ever sensed God saying the same thing to you personally? We all can fall out of touch with Him at times. That happens when we put ourselves in one corner and restrict the Lord to someplace “over there” and out of the way. Then we seem to lose track of His voice in our life. And yet, though we may not hear Him, He is still talking.

Quiet your spirit today. Open God’s Word and invite Him to speak to you anew. And then listen.
