A Daily Devotion for Thursday, May 19


John 8:47


”He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”


These words from Jesus are actually addressing those who were in Jesus’ presence, yet did not believe in Him. It is hard to imagine being in that situation. But even today, if we have no faith, how can we hear God? If we have no faith, life is just one meaningless coincidence after another. The closer I grow to God, the more clearly I will hear Him.

Holy Lord, help me to recognize when you are speaking to me, or trying to get my attention. You are leading me, and I am so thankful. I want to hear your voice even more clearly. Amen

John 8:47 Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God. The fact that these people were not hearing God's Word was proof that they were not of God. He did not need to see any action. All He needed was to know that they were rejecting the truth of God, because a person who is of God is prepared to accept it. This is interesting. It is temping to look at something like this and think, well I can’t hear him so I guess I’m not of God and just give up. It is almost like other things in our lives , i…

John 8:47 “Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”


Jesus is telling us that by letting Satan step in and cause us to sin, we are not listening to God. If we hear what God tells us in the Bible and believe it, we then belong to God. Satan has a powerful grip on those who do not hear what God is telling them. If we listen to what we are told in the Bible, we will always hear what God is saying and always belong to Him.


Dearest Lord, thank you for your words. They are powerful and tell me how much you care.…

I have never mastered the act of meditation in order to hear God speaking to me. I have a simple idea of hearing God. I think I know the difference between good and evil, which I learned from attending church and reading the bible for many years. So, if I make the right choices, and ask for forgiveness when I don’t, then I prove to myself that I have heard God.


Dear Lord, thank you for instilling in me the belief that I belong to you for eternity. Amen.
