Psalm 23:4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
No matter the situation around us, God is always there. He has never abandoned even one. He is always present. If there is a time that we cannot hear Him that is on us. We have allowed life, noise, sin, or something else to get in the way of us hearing Him as he speaks. We must get to a place where we are aware of Him and place a high value on the peace and presence that he gives freely to us. Otherwise we are not honoring what God has given us.
- Has there been a time where you allowed people or a situation to distract you from hearing God?
- Has there been a time where you did not honor, place proper value on, the peace or closeness you had with God?
- If so:
- Pray and ask father God to forgive you for dishonoring this area of life.
- Pray and ask God to help you place proper honor and respect for His peace and presence, and for a greater hunger in you for more or Him.
