Title: Joseph – A Man Who Listens to God

(1 Kings 3:9 MSG) “Here’s what I want: so I can lead your people well, discerning the difference between good and evil.”

Three Characteristics of a God-Listening Heart:

  1. A Listening Heart Obeys Even When it . (Matthew 1:18-25; Deuteronomy 22:23–24; Acts 2:17)

Hebrew marriage involved two stages.

  1. The kiddushin (betrothal or engagement)
  2. The huppah (public ceremony)
  1. A Listening Heart Obeys . (Matthew 2:13-14)

The longer you wait to obey…

  1. The less sure you are that you heard His voice.
  2. The softer God’s voice gets. (1 Samuel 3:1)
  3. The harder obedience becomes.

“Holding a grudge doesn’t make you strong. It makes you bitter. Forgiving doesn’t make you weak, it sets you free.” – David Willis

  1. A Listening Heart is in Tune with the Lord. (Matthew 2:19-22; Proverbs 4:18)

God rarely reveals the whole plan. But He will always reveal enough for you to take the next step of obedience! 

What’s your next step today?
