How to Continue to Speak when No One Listens.
Have you ever felt like no one is listening to a thing you say? That your words are falling on deaf ears? We all hit a point in our lives when we seem invisible. Maybe to our kids, our spouse, our coworkers, or our friends. If you are feeling like your words don’t make a difference read on, because you are in good company.
STUDY THE WORD
This month our #inscribetheword series focuses on the books of Isaiah and Jeremiah. Isaiah was a prophet whose words fell on deaf ears. His message from God for Judah could have saved them if only they had listened.
When God called Isaiah to be a prophet for Israel, He told Isaiah that most of the people he spoke to would not listen. Still, Isaiah was obedient and gave the Lord’s words to a people who wouldn’t listen and were far from God.
APPLY THE WORD
What can the life of Isaiah speak to us today? Maybe you feel like Isaiah. You have the answer to someone’s problem. You have the solution to someone’s circumstance but your words are falling on deaf ears. If the Lord has called you to give the message, to help the hurting, and to speak to the circumstance . . . Keep Speaking! Keep speaking His Word even if no one is listening. Keep living His Word even if it feels like no one is watching.
LIVE THE WORD
Pray for discernment, My Friend, as you are considering speaking to a friend or family member about a particular situation or circumstance. Use discernment when you want to give advice. Like Isaiah, if God called you to speak, then speak regardless of who is listening.
Whether or not they listen, remember who you are serving. Isaiah wasn’t serving Judah. He did not live for the accolades of the people. He served an Audience of One. His applause was in Heaven. May we live for an Audience of ONE and not for the audience of others.
