WHEN E. F. HUTTON SPEAKS –

Do you remember the slogan “When E.F. Hutton speaks, people listen?”

It is amazing how much minutiae one’s brain can hold and still  overlook the basic stuff one needs to

know!  Seems one should remember that when “God speaks, people need to listen.”

The Bible says “God spoke to Moses” seventy times.  God must have been pleased that Moses listened.  He kept talking.  They were friends.

 Was Moses a special friend of God because of a sin-free live? No, in fact he was a murderer (Ex. 2:12). Was it that he was a great intellectual and strategic leader? No, he had lead no one before his first special call from God (Ex. 3:4). Was it that he was a great orator? No, he was “slow of speech;” he had to have his brother go with him to speak for him (Ex. 4:10). Was he a go-getter, highly motivated, egotistic politician? No, he wanted God to send someone else (Ex. 4:13).

But he had some advantages: He was born into a courageous family who trained him in the ways of God. He had the opportunity to flourish among the rich and famous but chose rather to suffer with God’s people (Heb. 11:25). He became a wanderer and vagabond who was kind-hearted to the people in a foreign land, Midian (Ex. 2:19), where he dwelt for forty years. When God needed an educated man who knew the culture of the Egyptians, who was hardened to the rigors of wilderness living, who was trained and knowledgeable about the God of the Israelites, and who had a heart for the hurting, he called Moses. And when God spoke, Moses listened.

God does speak.  Sometimes through nature, sometimes through one’s consciousness, always through the Bible.  We need to listen.

A couple of slogans we should heed.

“The wages of sin is death.”

“The gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. AMEN!!! I’m listening 🙂

  2. Amen!
    “God never speaks to me.”
    “Well, are you listening?”

  3. Years ago at a conference the speaker would start a sentence and we (the crowd) would finish. It was amazing how many ads we could finish that day. Unfortunately when he did the same for Bible verses we were at a loss. It was a great lesson learned that day.

    The beauty of God’s Word is that it carries an applicable message for every thing that occurs in life. It never changes, yet is always new. Great post, my wise friend❤️

      Thanks for your nice confirmation of the Bible’s value to us. Even when God speaks though “words” or “thought” it is most often at a time when the person is reading the Bible. Never does any “word” contradict the Bible.
