|There is an old saying in law enforcement that goes like this "You may know where you are, and God may
know where you are, but if your dispatcher doesn't know where you are then you and God had better be
on good terms". I know there are a number of dispatchers who read these devotionals and I want to say
thank you for the job you do.
Communication with a dispatcher is vital to our being able to do our job, but if you will remember when
you first became an LEO it took time to learn how to listen to your dispatcher. Depending on the size of
your agency there can be a lot of traffic on the radio at any given time and to the untrained ear it
sounds like chaos. I had numerous "ride alongs" as a deputy and they were always confused when it came
to the radio traffic, but understanding it was second nature to me because I knew who and what I was
It's much the same way with listening to God. In the first part of today's verse Jesus said, "He that
is of God heareth God's words". Just like it takes a trained LEO to understand what is being said on
the radio, it takes a Christian to understand God's Word. The reason for this is because His Spirit
within us gives us that understanding. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 2:14 "But the natural man (lost
person) receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he
know them, because they are spiritually discerned". Notice those last two words, "spiritually discerned".
Without the Holy Spirit we are incapable of receiving or discerning anything from God. Furthermore,
receiving His Word not only means to hear it, but to accept it. A Christian receives, or accepts God's
Word with a readiness to conform his or her life to it. This doesn't mean that a Christian automatically
understands all the deep truths of the Bible, but he or she will have discernment in what God is showing
them in His Word. Make sure you always obey what God shows you, and in so doing you will learn more
and more how to listen to Him. If you have no desire to conform to God's Word and you're unable to
receive His Word, then make sure you are His by receiving Jesus as your Savior.
