Recognizing God's voice

So why do you challenge God to answer you? God speaks in different ways, and we don’t always recognize his voice. ~ Job 33:13-14 (CEV)

They said to each other, “When he talked with us along the road and explained the Scriptures to us, didn’t it warm our hearts?” ~ Luke 24:32 (CEV)

KEY IDEA:
We need to approach life with humility, accepting that we don't always understand what God is saying.
PRAYER:
Gracious God, you continue to speak your Word to us through the Bible. But even though I've studied a lot of the Bible there are lot's of times that I don't instantly recognize what you are saying. Give me the humility to accept that I can never be a full expert on your message. And grant me, too, insight so that I can embrace your Word when it seems mysterious. I want to be able to walk with you and burn with passion for your Word -- even though I don't recognize the significance of what you are saying. And that will require humility. Amen.
