Getting to know a person involves drawing near and listening. If we were honest with ourselves, we would admit we are not very good listeners. Some would rather keep talking, while others may get easily distracted and would want to do something else with their time. We also get easily distracted and have an abundance of information available. In Isaiah 48:12–15, God is calling His people to listen and draw near to Him. He wants to be known. The infinite God wants to be intimate with His people. Today, we will look at His invitation and the benefits of drawing near to Him.
– How has listening to God affected your life? How can you draw near to Him every day?
– Take some time to reflect on the things you’ve been listening to. What are some new things you can do to listen to God’s voice more?
– Think of someone who needs to listen to God more. How can you help point him or her back to God this week?
