Radio Interview, R U listening?

Yesterday, I had my much awaited interview on the Prodigal Hope Network. I had typed my notes, reviewed them and prayed, but I wasn’t prepared for the technical glitch. About 5 minutes into the show, the interviewer couldn’t hear me. I could hear her, but she couldn’t hear me and I was talking over her trying to see if she could hear me. She told me to call back, but I was afraid I wouldn’t reach her. Then silence. Dead air…oh well, the worst had happened. It was in God's hands now whether it would contiune or not. I prayed, called back and got reconnected. The interview continued, and I answered the questions from the heart, hoping I was reaching someone who was hurting with a prodigal.

As I thought about what had happened, it occurred to me that it was somewhat like our communication with God. We’re talking or praying to God and we think He can’t hear us, but He’s answering us and we just keep on talking like He hasn’t heard. Communicating with God, commonly known as prayer, is not just a one way street. It takes listening skills also—listening to the Holy Spirit when He talks to us in the Word of God, listening to the still small voice of God when He speaks to us: in our devotion time, in the car, at home or on the job. He talks to us. R U listening? Or like me, are you too busy talking?
