HOW YOU HEAR

Devotional Type: PHANEROO~DEVOTION
Date: 16th January 2018
Preacher: Apostle Grace Lubega

Luke 8:18 (KJV), Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

Topic: HOW YOU HEAR

When a child of God seeks the “hows” of the Word, he or she is after the results of the Word.

Thus, when the master tells us to take heed how we hear, it is an instruction to seek to have results for the Word we have believed.

How you hear defines your place of stewardship.
As a good steward you are weighed on the ability to multiply what you have received.

The parable of talents is illustrative on this.

The Bible narrates, “He that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.” (Matthew 25:16-18).

The first two servants multiplied what they received, they were men that knew how to hear. And because they knew how to hear, more was given unto them (Matthew 25:20-29).

Like our theme scripture reveals, “for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.”

The bad steward who only buried his Lord’s money is the Christian who only accumulates knowledge and does not produce results.

 He is ever learning but never coming to the knowledge of Christ (2 Timothy 3:7), for the proof of knowledge is results.

When you read the scriptures or listen to sermons, seek to practice what you have heard. If you do not see results, study more on that topic, practice harder until you walk in the manifestation of what you have learned.

That is a man who knows how to hear. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Matthew 25:16-29, 1 Timothy 4:15

GOLDEN NUGGET: When you read the scriptures or listen to sermons, seek to practice what you have heard. If you do not see results, study more on that topic, practice harder until you walk in the manifestation of what you have learned. That is a man who knows how to hear.

PRAYER: Father, I am grateful for this wisdom. I know how to hear. I have results of the Word because I daily exercise myself to walk in the manifestation of what I learn. Knowledge is not just information to me, it is experiences and these experiences are the results I see every day.  In Jesus’ name. Amen.
