The Photo-a-Day Challenge for today is:

LISTEN

Merriam-Webster Dictionary: LISTEN

• to pay attention to sound

• to hear something with thoughtful attention

• to be alert to catch an expected sound

The Bible gives us many examples of listening. It is when we quiet ourselves that we can hear God speaking to us. I love the sounds of nature, birds singing, the wind blowing, ocean water as it crashing into the shore, the thunder during a storm, all these and many more. All of these are gifts from our Heavenly Father.

What are ways you listen for God’s small still voice in your life?

Here’s a few verses that teach us about listening:

“Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, “This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!” ~Mark 9:7

“We know that God does not listen to sinners, but he does listen to one who worships him and obeys his will.” ~John 9:31

“Like a gold ring or an ornament of gold is a wise rebuke to a listening ear.” ~Proverbs 25:12

“They are from the world; therefore what they say is from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us, and whoever is not from God does not listen to us. From this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.” ~1 John 4:5-6

“Then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!” ~Luke 9:35

ειρήνη – “Peace” in Greek, reference listed the below.
