Quick to Hear

Passage: James 1:19-21

James 1:19 tells us to be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger. James wants us to know to be quick to hear, not just to hear. Hearing is an active process, not a passive action. Being quick to hear changes our relationship with God and with others. We miss out on the life God has for us when we don’t hear Him. We cannot truly walk in relationship with the Father without hearing His voice. Being intentional to provide space to hear from Him in prayer time, sitting still before the Lord, meditating on His Word, listening to how He speaks through others, are some ways in which we can position ourselves to hear. Learning to hear, reshapes how we live!
