“ Then Elisha said, “Hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the LORD: ‘Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.”
People have said God created one mouth and two ears so that we will be able to hear more and speak less. What you hear with your ear is very important. You will notice that I said what you hear with your own ear. This is because some people hear with the ears of others.
Let me unpack this. In a classroom with students and an instructor, you find out that as the instructor is speaking, the students take note. Some of the students are unable to hear at the speed with which the instructor is speaking what they then do is to turn to the note pad of the person nearest to them and begin to copy down what that individual is writing. If the individual is writing gibberish they do the same.
After Elisha inserted the key to ignite revolution by making a nation altering decision, the next thing was to ensure that his character will not alter the cycle that has begun in the spiritual. He then created an avenue for the manifestation and acceleration of the miraculous through speaking and hearing—Hear the word of the Lord.
The word of God has been described as a lamp to the feet and a light to the path. This implies that you are able to see where you are going by what you hear. The ear was created for a purpose—to hear. The word of God tells us that, “God’s ear is not heavy that He cannot hear.” This simply means that God has an ear and he uses it to hear. Severally in the scriptures you will read, “God heard the voice of Elijah and brought back to life the son of the widow of Zarephath.” (1Kings 17:22) and “God heard the voice of the lad.” (Genesis 21:17)
If G, we should alsways endeavour to hear and hear correctly. Do not hear a rumour. (2 Kings 19:6-
1.When you hear from God, any problem that you are going through will hear from you.
Moses heard from God in the book of Exodus “Now go, for I am sending you to Pharaoh. You must lead my people Israel out of Egypt.” (Exodus 3:10, NLT) and Pharaoh later heard from him, “The waters returned and covered the chariots, the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that pursued them; not even one of them remained.” (Exodus 14:28, TAB) Moses later composed a song, “THEN MOSES and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord, saying, I will sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider or its chariot has He thrown into the sea.” (Exodus 15:1 TAB)
2. What you hear will determine the next step that you will take
Elisha told the people of Samaria to hear but none of them bothered to listen except four lepers. Elisha even told them what they were about to hear—the word of the Lord but they were not impressed. Their mind had been condition to lack. This is a barrier that needs to be broken in our minds for us to experience a revolution. Abundance was so unreal that they immediately threw every word spoken by Elisha into the garbage dump. They did not bother to process it. The word spoken was supposed to activate their faith if heard, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17, NKJV)
- What you hear is an energizer
“When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was nearby, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” (Mark 10:47, NLT
- What you hear is a destiny activator
“Then Naomi heard in Moab that the Lord had blessed his people in Judah by giving them good crops again. So Naomi and her daughters-in-law got ready to leave Moab to return to her homeland.” (Ruth 1:6, NKJV)
