Isaiah 59 : 1 (ESV)
” Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear “
It is obvious that when we read that God has ear(s) and a mouth, or even when we read a Bible quote talking about the mouth and the ear or ears of God, we must be careful not to have a physical image of the thing. Yes, idols made by men can be equipped with a physical mouth and ears. But God the Father is Spirit and therefore does not have a physical body made up of organs like men and animals. However, He has the ability to speak and hear. The Son (Jesus), meanwhile, now has a glorious body. He is more like a man in appearance.
The Bible teaches us that we must receive from God to grow and know Him better. Do you often receive from Him? If so, I encourage you to continue on this path. If not, it is probably a sign that something is stuck, and we should fix it to move on. Remember, there is no point in falling into self-blame. On the contrary, we must simply project ourselves forward, knowing that our Heavenly Father is there and that He is supporting us.
