In the book of Joel right from the beginning, God tells the people to “Hear” and “Give ear” (1:3). It's almost easy to miss, isn't it? As we move through the book, we observe that God wanted genuine relationship and repentance from His people. And all of that comes back to hearing and being attentive to Him, with the idea of putting into action what He tells us. Now, if that doesn't hit close to home, I'm not sure what will! Israel got themselves into such trouble simply because they wouldn't listen to the commanding voice of the Lord. And for that, they suffered great consequences. Let's make sure that we are people of His word and walking in His spirit so that we can hear Him speaking to us!
Let us give ear to our Lord Jesus,
