The Wise Listen to God

The Wise Listen to Godby Rick Warren
Start with GOD—the first step in learning is bowing down to GOD; only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning. Proverbs 1:7 (MSG)


Have you noticed that the moment you establish a goal in your life, you start hearing people say, “Who do you think you are?” or “It can't be done” or “Forget about it”?
The antidote to the voices of doubt is to instead listen to the voice of God. Just imagine all the critics that were in Noah's life. “That guy, Noah, thinks God speaks to him, but he's just messing up all of our property values by building that ark in his front yard.”
The Bible tells us that Noah listened to God. And what did he hear? He heard God's warning that the world was going to be destroyed. He heard what he had not yet seen. That's what faith is — being certain of something we don't see.
So Noah didn’t turn back on the vision God had given him. Instead, he built the ark.

• What are ways you’ve allowed fear or criticism to keep you from reaching your goals?
• What dream would you pursue if you were not afraid of criticism?
