Genesis 26: 4-5 (NRSV)

[4] "I will make your offspring as numerous as the stars of heaven, and will give to your offspring all these lands; and all the nations of the earth shall gain blessings for themselves through your offspring, [5] because Abraham obeyed my voice and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws."

It is amazing what you can hear when you are quiet.

In this passage Isaac is hearing from the Lord that he will be blessed because of the obedience of his father Abraham. The scripture says that Abraham obeyed His voice - which means that he was quiet enough to hear what God intended for his life and he was obedient when called to action. 

Are you being quiet enough?  Are you listening? 

There are so many distractions out there, but when we take the time to listen we are able to create a legacy of blessings for ourselves and our families.
