Silent Prayer

Jeremiah 7:23
This rather is what I commanded them: Listen to my voice; then I will be your God and you shall be my people. Walk in all the ways that I command you, so that you may prosper.

The Prophet Jeremiah has a key message for us: Listen to God! As Jesus proclaimed, “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand” (Mark1:15). Jesus said this so that we would know that “God’s reign”…”God’s dream for you“…is possible in this very moment. Our Loving Creator wants each of us to be a part of building the kingdom of God…using our gifts and talents to make a more compassionate world. This is true prosperity. But it’s not possible if I am only listening to my ego…which will always be searching for ways to build my kingdom. It’s also not possible if I am holding on to past hurts or am constantly looking ahead or worrying about the future. What are the “ways” God is asking us to walk in now so that we truly prosper? Are we listening to God’s voice?
