The Deaf Hear
Updated: Jun 12, 2019
Then the eyes of the blind will be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. - Isaiah 35:5
One morning my business partner called me in a panic. I asked him what the problem was. He said that he had lost all hearing in his right ear. He was alarmed and I was too. As we prayed for hearing God showed me a block in his ear. I asked The Lord what the block was. He said it was a block to relationship. Knowing my partner was prone to turning a deaf ear, I asked him if he was listening to what his wife was telling him. He asked me why. I told him what The Lord had showed me and I thought perhaps The Lord was suggesting the physical deafness was a sign for a change that was needed. He hung up. I don’t think he liked my suggestion.
“About an hour later my business partner called me ecstatic. His hearing had been restored.”
About an hour later my partner called me ecstatic. He said that his hearing had been completely restored. I asked him what happened. He said that he asked his wife if he listened to her. She said, “John, you never listen to me.” To his credit, he humbled himself before his wife and confessed his sin toward her. They prayed together for open communications in their relationship and his hearing was immediately restored.
Abba Father. Please forgive me for any time I have turned a deaf ear to You, to my family members, my friends, and to any that You have ordained me to listen to. Please open the ears of my spirit and soul to listen to You and to hear You because faith comes by hearing. Please make me slow to speak and quick to listen to my family, friends, and those You have ordained for me to listen to. Let it be in Jesus Name!
