“Give ear, O my people, to my law; Incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old, which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.” –verses 1-3
“Give ear…incline your ears…” A powerful way to start a psalm, followed then by the circuitous route the people took to end up where they would give ear and listen. I see a similar pattern in areas of my life, and I pray I learn from the Israelites’ and my own experiences.
Whatever He is trying to teach you, listen now. You will listen eventually, do whatever you need to do to be able to listen now.
