The Voice – Do You Hear It?
There is a voice that longs to have a relationship with you, and it’s unique to you.
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27.
Listen very carefully when there is something that keeps nagging and pulling at you. God is seeking to speak with you.
In our earthly state, we think, “Where is God? I don’t see Him.” Let me call a friend, talk to my parents, siblings, spouse, an acquaintance. Hmmm, well, should I? I don’t feel comfortable speaking to them. The bartender appears friendly; maybe he or she will have some insightful words of encouragement. Desperation manifests.
Trust me; if God is speaking to you, don’t stress. There’s no need to exert any energy finding someone. He’ll deliver the message directly to you in His way; via the vessel in which He chooses to convey it. Then again, when blessings flow, and God knows your heart, you’ve done the work by faith, and He’ll deliver it directly to you. When that happens, your life changes, and you realize nothing else matters but that relationship. Some relationships you deemed worthy, dissipate. God knows their heart as well.
Harnessing this gift to hear His call, His voice, requires patience, understanding, knowledge, and willpower to believe what you can’t see.
Isaiah 30:21 You will hear a word spoken behind you, saying, “This is the correct way; walk in it,” whether you are heading to the right or the left.
James 4:8 Come near to God and he will come near to you
When you step outside, and you feel the most wondrous wind. And you know the wind feels different. You notice the leaves gracefully falling to the ground. The moment is the deepest, heartfelt experience. The moment is serene and treasured. When you awake in the morning disturbed and lost, glaring at the floor; then you notice a trail of light in rainbow colors leading directly to your pillow — God is speaking to you. Don’t worry child, I’m here when no one is and all has forsaken you, but Me. Trust me.
When you feel, everyone is against you, that’s God drawing you near because He knows something you don’t. He sees what you can’t see. All of your experiences mean, you’re still walking with the path He wants you to walk. Don’t forsake that path because you feel the need or want to please others that are not following what God wants them to do. In your soul, you know He’s speaking to you. Great things are about to happen.
When you don’t answer the call according to God’s direction because you feel you have all the answers, you know better. Or this person has all the answers because he or she is intelligent and astute. Then you trust their opinion. Please ensure you’re prepared for a very unpleasant experience. A moment so painful that you’ll regret the decision, but a lesson learned and one to remember. A painful situation with God and a painful decision as a result of ignoring His voice are entirely two different situations. With God, you can survive if you listen to His voice. The other painful scenario leads to suffering and anger.
Also, say you did make a dreadful decision. The remarkable thing about God, He already knew your choice; even though, He continued to persuade you otherwise. And another excellent thing, if you stay the course this time, your issue has been resolved, and comforting words are awaiting you. He’s not upset or angry; He’s patiently waiting for you to return so you can both pick up where you left off. His voice is the only voice that matters and everything else will fall into place if you hone the gift to hear.
