(Proverbs 5:7 KJV) Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
How much does it take to get you to “depart” (5493) from the “words” (561) given to you? Have you ever heard the expression “in one ear and out the other”? Sometimes I think God mumbles that to Himself.
Maybe it would help if we could develop some sort of spiritual sticky notes. My daughter was really into those. She would have every surface in reach covered with them. It worked for her. Maybe it would work for us.
Try it. Listen for the voice of God. It might come in a sermon on Sunday. It might come as you read the Bible. It might come completely unbidden as the Holy Spirit puts a thought into your mind.
Write it down. That in itself will help you remember.
Put it where you can find it.
So? God is trying to reach you. Believe it. Do your part to be connected. Do your part to remember what He is trying to say. It can have consequences, good and bad.
