Do you think you know the Voice of God? Have you heard Him speak? Would you recognize His Voice, if He spoke to you?
Is it the sound of a Mighty Rushing Wind? Or a still small voice? Do you hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host?
“Let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself:” (What?)
Do you strain to hear Him? Do you understand what He is saying? Do you believe he speaks at all?
“They heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day:”
Adam and Eve recognized the voices of the Lord God, and because of their sin, hid.
Do we find ourselves, hiding from God, ashamed of ourselves? He desires we come boldly to His throne of Grace.
We certainly can do that, IF we are covered with the blood of the Lamb.
“If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.”
Freedom from the plagues of Egypt? One of the many promises given to those who love Him.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.”
Are you living, do you hear His voice?
“The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters.”
Psalm 95:6-8 (KJV)
“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:”
It may be a still small voice, we think of it, as our conscience. It might be a mighty rushing wind, we experience as we read His Word, and are blown away by His Revelation to us.
Or it could be in the midst of a storm.
The Lord wants to speak to us. To make His will and ways for our life clear. “Today, harden not your heart…”
“Take My Yoke, learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
Find rest, walk with Jesus, hear His voice.
