Day Nine: Are You Listening?


(*This is picture of of our precious daughter Mallory, the mommy of our precious grandson)

They said it

so it has to be

True~

Snow is coming

through the night.

They said it

so it has to be

True~

But the night has passed

the snow hasn't come,

yet

they said it

so it has to be

True.

Anticipation~

fixed on what

they said

changes

how you feel

&

what you will do

because

if they said it

it has to be

True.

Who are you listening to

and how does it affect how you feel and what you do?

But

He said it~

"but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,

for when you eat from it you will certainly die." Genesis 2:17

But

they didn't listen even though it was

True.

But

He said it~

"Run for your lives! And don't look back or stop anywhere in the valley!

Escape to the mountains, or you will be swept away!" Genesis 19:17

But

Lot's wife didn't listen even though it was

True~

But Lot’s wife, behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:26

But

He said it~

“The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.

So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35

But

Mary listened

because she knew it was

True~

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Luke 1:38 So it must be

True

because

She gave birth to her firstborn, a Son.

She wrapped Him in cloths

and placed Him in a manger,

because there was no guest room available for them. Luke 2:17

But

He said it

from the very beginning

when

He said it~

”The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son,

and they will call him Immanuel”-- which means, “God with us.” Isaiah 7:14

so

when

He says it

It is

True~

But when the set time had fully come,

God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,

to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.

Because you are His sons,

God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out,

“Abba, Father.”

So you are no longer a slave,

but God’s child; and since you are His child,

God has made you also an heir. Galatians 4:4-7

Therefore~

Do you hear what I hear?

Do you see what I see?

The Child, the Child, sleeping in the night He will bring us goodness and light He will bring us goodness and light

Because

He said it

It is True

for you and for me.

Who are you listening to

and how does it affect how you feel and what you do?

Don't listen to me

Listen to Him

Because

He said it

It is True~
