Trembling With Love

Isaiah 66:2 - “'For My hand made all these things, thus all these things came into being,' declares the Lord. 'But to this one I will look, to him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.'"

One might say, "I obey the Ten Commandments and am a good citizen." But is this all God wants? Does He not desire those who obeys not only His written word but also His voice as He speaks throughout the day? If we are not hearing God, then we have grieved Him so often that we no longer recognize His voice.

When God says, "Go" we must go. When He says "Stop," we must immediately cease and desist whatever we are doing. A good rule of thumb is if there is any doubt, don't do it! Wait and listen. God will make it clear if we do not grieve Him away. This is what is meant by trembling at His word.
