Psalm 81: 8, 13 Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you! O Israel, if you will listen to Me! Oh, that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways!
Can you hear the heart cry of God in these verses? As any father or mother, His desire is for us to “listen” to Him. The Lord desired that Israel would listen to Him and thereby be set free from Babylon, bringing an enduring liberation rather than momentary relief.
His cry is the same today! If His people would LISTEN to Him, we too can be liberated from anything that would incarcerate us. Often times we jeopardize ourselves, being responsible for the places we find ourselves in. Even in those times and places, the Lord cries out “listen”! And He will deliver and save!
“Love give us ears to hear and listen – to You!”
