FOLLOW HIS VOICE
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
Before the days of video chat services, the telephone was the link between far-flung loved ones--and still mostly is. All anxious parent calls a child at college,, "I just needed to hear your voice." A discouraged husband on a business trip calls his wife to hear the sound of her voice. A frightened child calls out from her bed at night. "Mom" and is reassured by the returning voice. "I'm right here, sweetheart."
The human voice can bridge distances and bring comfort like nothing else. It is the same with the voice of God. We think of Him as being in heaven and sometimes forget that He is in us as well. And even though we don't hear His audible voice, we can "Hear" His voice at any time through His Word and the way the Spirit applies the Word to our live individually. Just as a child can recognize a parent's in the dark, so we can recognize God's voice in our darkest moments. Jesus said His sheep hear His voice and follow Him.. His voice tells us that we are never separate from Him.
When you wonder where God is in your life, listen for His voice through His Word and prayer to remember that He is near to you. And when you hear His voice, be prepared to follow Him.
