Learning to Hear God Early On


"So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled is donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son; and he split wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him." (Gen. 22:3)

    "Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Thy Law." (Ps. 119:18)

      "A false witness will perish, but the man who listens to the truth will speak forever." (Prov. 21:28)

    "Set your mind on things above and not on the things that are on earth." (Col. 3:2) (1 Cor. 2:16)

    "And indeed if they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return." (Heb. 11:15)

    "But now what are you doing on the road to Egypt? To drink the waters of the Nile?" (Jer. 2:18)

  3. The shelf life of your INFLUENCE.
    "You have not chosen Me but I have chosen you, and appointed you, that you should bear fruit and that your fruit should remain." (John 15:16)

    "And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son, and he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So the two of them walked on together." (Gen. 22:6)
