One of the reasons we do not hear from God is that we listen to other people.  Our ears are so accustomed to “the wisdom of this age” that we neither discern nor heed the “Still Small Voice” saying a very different thing.  When Amaziah invited Amos to “get out of town” (Amos 7) he did so because they already had a religion–and one that they liked very well, thank you.  No matter that their religion was man-made and lacked the power of God.  If we are not careful we make the same mistake.  In Jeremiah 23:28-29 God says, “The prophet who has a dream may relate his dream, but let him who has My word speak it in truth.  What does straw have in common with grain?  Is not my word like FIRE, like a hammer that shatters the rock?”  May we all hunger for nothing less.  I will look for you tomorrow.  I am counting on your prayers.
