Open Your Heart to Receiving

 God's Word through

 Divine Revelation 

 

You have a God-given responsibility to keep yourself open to divine revelation and to use the intelligence you have been given to try to understand it and the message it contains for you.

 

By all means join in worship with the members of a great religion if that is your inclination or preference. Listen to what you are told is the Word of God, but then make up your own mind.

 

God must have created you out of love. If what you are being told has to do with love, then you can be safe in knowing that it comes from God.

 

Also look at and listen to the whole world around you and see what it tells you about its - and your - maker. In the New Testament it is reported that many people did not hear or understand what Jesus said. You have your own part to play in divine revelation: the listening and recognising part:

 

"He that hath ears to hear, let him hear," said Jesus.

 

This is good advice. Divine revelation is impossible if you keep your ears closed to it.

 

You also need to open your eyes and see what is there before them, rather than what you  think you see.

 

The method is similar to that of a beginning artist who is learning to look at everything anew. It requires artistry to live well, and divine revelation can show you how – if you will allow it to.

 

If you are the product of the greatest creativity there can be, then you need to exert your own creativity to reflect and repay this. You must look at each day as a fresh chance to live the way you are meant to. You must learn to accept the bad with the good and take nothing for granted, but seek under every stone and behind every hedge and in everything said or done by those around you for God's message to you.

 

Learn also to ponder the deeper meaning of what people say to you, rather than merely reacting to what you think they are saying.

 

Open your eyes and ears and mind to everything and everyone around you, so that you will not miss the Word that God is sending straight to your heart.
