GOD’S WORD FOR OCTOBER 2
GOD’S WORD FOR OCTOBER 2 ~ ~ Psalm 27:8 ~ ~ “… Seek ye my face; my heart said unto you Your face, LORD, will I seek.”
Infants will often look ever so serious as they babble away, as if they’re actually saying something of great importance. Most of us have assumed that they do this because they see others talking and they want to join in.
The clue to the fact that there is more to speech than simple imitations came when scientists discovered that infants can babble without ever making a sound. Researchers studied five infants, two of whom were deaf and had deaf parents. In the deaf households, communication took place through American Sign Language.
Scientists found that both hearing and deaf children babbled in the language used in their homes. Hearing infants produced sounds, then syllables, and eventually meaningful words. The deaf infants did the same with their hands. At first they would make the hand signs for basic letters and numbers, stringing them together without meaning. Just as the hearing infants were beginning to offer meaningful communication by their first birthday, the deaf infants’ signing had reached the same point by their first birthday.
Researchers were shocked when they realized what this means. It means that the brain has some type of unified ability built into it for learning language. This conclusion goes against everything evolution says about who and what humans are. However, it fits perfectly with the Bible when it tells us that men and women were made for fellowship and communication with their Creator.
God is big on communication. That’s part of the reason He suffered and died for us…..which is to connect us with our Creator, Savior, Lord and King. He tells us that in a nutshell in Isaiah 1:18 ~ ~
“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
He is describing His sacrifice for us as individuals who receive the substitution.
He wants us to communicate with Him. That’s why His Word says in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 simply to
“Pray without ceasing”
“Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;”
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
“Not only does He want us to communicate with Him through prayer, but He promised over and over again to answer us.”
“He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.”
“when He shall hear it, He will answer you.”
And one of my favorites:
Isaiah 65:24 ~ ~ “And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”
He is so eager to answer us, and bless us, that He can’t wait until we’re through praying!!
Please, don’t underestimate God’s desire to be a part of your life. His heart breaks when we go about our lives and ignore His Glorious Presence with us!
