For he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if only you would hear his voice. Psalm 95:7
We hear the term “God’s voice” what does that mean? What impact do those words have on our minds? We have to admit that what happens in many cases is a term loses its impact the more we hear it, and we don’t look at our response to that particular term.
We are told in His Word that God has supplied His voice to each of us individually through the Holy Spirit who dwells within each of us as his children. The term “still small voice” is used in scripture, which indicates that it is a clear voice within us that speaks to us quietly. Often when real communication takes place it’s because we are very intent on hearing that voice. We are leaning forward to listen, making sure we don’t miss a word, we are anticipating, wanting to be sure we are reading the lips of God. If we are not intent, this is an indication that we have become somewhat blasé about the person who loves us perfectly, unconditionally, who has our best interest in mind. We are not so apt to receive his communication because we are so intent on the things that we can actually see around us, circumstances, relationships etc. Remember unless we are anticipating God speaking to us, we cannot receive and experience His amazing love for us.
Make no mistake — God has you reading this exactly because He wants us to realize that His voice is very important to us, and that we are very susceptible to the world, the flesh, and the devil without His guidance that he has surely placed within us.
Father, thank you for the faith that you have given me to listen intently and on purpose, to your words meant especially for me.
