When God says something twice…”listen, listen.” Listen with your inside ears and your outside ears. Be fully there. You are in God’s house. It’s not a time to be distracted, it’s a time to be fully there. “Listen, listen.”
“Incline your ear.” You think God is trying to get something across? … It’s the act of humility to incline your ear when God speaks.
Listen diligently, incline your ear – Hear, and your soul shall live.
Faith comes by hearing.
If you are in trouble, listen, listen. Get an iPod and listen. You can listen your way out of that trouble. If you are fearful, you have panic attacks – get the word of God, incline your ears, listen, listen, listen your way out of that panic attack, out of that fear.
New King James Version (NKJV)
Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—
The sure mercies of David.
