Shift 5 - Ask to Listen
Ask to Listen is a shift in posture from asking others to listening to God. We look outside of ourselves for answers - to sermons and books, seeking advisors to tell us exactly what to do. We worry about missing the will of God from our lives. We read the Bible like a desk reference as though it should answer our questions. When we make this shift, rather than asking God or someone else to answer our questions, we begin to ask the questions God is already answering. We will let Him speak. We will let Him set the agenda. We will listen.
