Let us consider the next thing that W. Barclay said about John the Baptist,
''He had given himself a chance to hear the voice of God''. Lets face it the world does really rush on, busy, busy, busy. No matter how fast we drive on the motorway , there will always be those who will drive faster, busy, busy,
busy. Then there is all the workplace ,and when we go home more work, and oh I must watch my favourite soap on the TV. If you are a parent you become the local taxi ,and oh they must be taken to the junior football team, which you have to watch with a lot of other parents. We like the radio on in the car n fact we do not like quietness, oh I must watch the x factor. most people do not give themselves time, with their husbands, or wives. Of course many of these things are legitimate, but surely listening to God is important, but the cry goes up, I have not time to listen to God. Dear Child of God ,stop and listen, and then like John the Baptist ,you may just hear God speaking.
Dear God we thank you that you are never to busy to listen to us, we confess that sad to say we are often to busy to listen to you, forgive us, and help us to change, in Jesus name Amen.
