6 Days of Listening to God Through Scripture
This is a 6-day practice of listening to God through scripture! You can find each of the 6 days below as we move through them together. Start on Day 1 and then pause each day to listen to scripture and meditate on God’s word.
Read your chosen passage of scripture slowly. As you read, listen for the Holy Spirit’s prompting. If a word or phrase stands out to you or touches your heart, linger there. I nothing stands out immediately, re-read the passage as you wait for God to speak.
Once you have fixed on a word or phrase, reflect on it. Let the rest of the passage go as you contemplate the word or phrase that has become primary. Pay attention to how the word makes you feel. What does the word or phrase mean? What does it mean to you in this moment?
Talk to God. The ultimate question is, “Lord, why did you give me this word today?” As you pray, ask God to reveal what he is teaching or showing you through this word or phrase. Listen. This is the life application part; the part where you speak to God and listen for God to speak to you.
Pause to rest in God’s presence before you return to the noise and tasks of your day. This is a time of just BEING, and being still in God’s loving presence. It is an act of letting go. If you get distracted, gently bring yourself back to a place of quiet stillness with the Father.
