Most of us run to to God and ask Him to speak to us, but are we ready to hear His instructions, will we obey Him and do as He asks?
The people that God wanted to use had excuses to do what God wanted them to do.
Jeremiah 1:6-9 “O Sovereign LORD,” I said, “I can’t speak for you! I’m too young!” The LORD replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the LORD, have spoken!” Then the LORD reached out and touched my mouth and said, “Look, I have put my words in your mouth!
Sometimes we ask Him to speak because we don’t want to hear what He is currently saying but want to hear our own things that we already expect Him to say.
