Foreword:

Ever wonder what God might have to say to YOU today? Here are things to ponder, and things to receive into your heart. If you have a question, put it in the comments. I respond as much as I can.

A note for all my readers: I've been experimenting with YouTube videos for Bible teaching for a while, and I'm working through Revelation here. My YouTube videos are currently short studies in Matthew, and at present I'm posting videos on Revelation as well. Both appear on the blog, which is turning into a Vlog. I encourage you to subscribe to my YouTube channel for better coverage.

Be someone I can talk to

My Son Jesus said that I hide Myself from the "wise and prudent." That seems like a contradiction, doesn't it? It's not.  Some people are their own "gods," and think they don't need My wisdom. So how could I talk to someone like that? They are like a man named Nabal in My Book, of whom it was said, "He is such a Son of Belial (an arrogant devil), that nobody can speak to him." 
My Son Jesus also said that I reveal things to "babies," and He meant, "humble enough to hear." In another place, He said "humble yourself as a little child," meaning, "be a humble person who will listen." It's hard to do that, I know.  Your world is filled with wrong examples--with people who "show off" how smart they are, and people who always want to tell, rather than hear.  But I give My best secrets to the people who will stop, listen for Me to speak, and then listen to what I have to say. You can be that person, if you want to be.  The first step is to say in your heart, "The Father is greater than I am. I want to really listen to Him." And then, when I start talking, don't shut Me up.
