24. May we convert
This passage announces the disposition of the faith:
“Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people.” Psalm, chapter 85, verse 8
Let’s listen and be focused to what the Lord God will say in our heart.
When we are vigilant, we turn our faith and our heart as a receiver to the Heart of God. His Heart is similar to the satellite that launches signals. We do need to put our faith towards the right frequency to receive God. We must not turn it to channels whose waves affect the reception of our soul. The dome of the heart adjusted in the right direction to the Heart of God will receive the signals of his Love.
If we do not listen, it’s possibly because we are troubled, we are elsewhere. We may be at war against our own heart. After the war, it’s the distress creeping in, loss of energy then lack of peace.
May we listen to what the Lord says in the silence of our heart. We think we’re not hearing anything? Still, God speaks to us all the same. Only experience will clarify our listening. Let’s count five seconds and gradually increase from week to week, the time to listen to God. Let’s adjust the beating of our heart to the Heart of God.
God offers us his peace, peace for his family and children. Peace is offered to us. Let’s listen and cling to the one that offers us his peace and his Love.
