Listening is just as important as praying. In order to receive confirmation and instruction, we must actually pause to hear what God is saying. How silly would it be if you were to call a friend, ask them a question, and then hang up the phone before they give you an answer? That's what we do when we end our prayers before waiting for God to speak.
Take heed to the messages that are presented to you, and the things that God is teaching you. Allow His Word to resonate within in you, and put it into practice in your life.
