TimeTestedNews ||God is listening! By CJ Emmanuel 


Then those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored his name.

  • Malachi 3: 16 NIV 

God loves to see His children fellowship with one another. No wonder Jesus says that He will be present where two or three gather in His Name. As a child of God, be very conscious of spiritual realities. When you meet with another or other believers, mind what you say because God is listening to you. Parents love to see their children spend time together. No father is ever happy when there is enmity, bitterness or disagreement among his children.


There is no room for sinful jokes among believers. Remember that we live, move and have our being in The Lord. Get The Word of God into your heart and see that even your jokes will be godly. The Lord had friends when He walked physically on earth, so He must have had times in which He laughed. He also had children around Him. This means that His disposition was welcoming. The children must have played where He was. They were free in His company. Jesus makes life real.

A brother and his friends had a highly notable experience one day. It happened that they found themselves together. It was not in any way an arranged meeting. As they talked and played with one another, one of them started singing. The others joined him and before anyone knew what was happening, the power of God fell upon them. The Lord began to move among them in a way that they had not known before. 

God loves His people. His eyes are forever over the righteous. God is with you. Talk like you know He is. Say and think only what He loves to hear. Love other believers and get ready for uncommon happenings because you are special to The Lord. May you end today with laughter.


1. Thank God for the breath of life.

2. Ask for mercy if you have not been careful with what you say.

3. Pray for the grace to please God always.

4. Ask The Lord to connect you with His children today.

5. Pray as you are led; give thanks.

The fellowship of true friends who can hear you out, share your joys, help carry your burdens, and correctly counsel you is priceless.
