Psalm 95:6-9 “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: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.”
“What if…” Those two words can be devastating to the doubting heart, but the crucible by which we grow in wisdom and understanding. What if… you heard the voice of God today? What do you think He would say? Would it be something of His love, His comfort or His longsuffering?
God speaks to us every single day of our life. Nature itself bears witness that there is a God. The birds sing of His provision, protection and care. The sun gives of light to reveal to us the wonders of His creation. The night sky reveals the vastness of His touch and puts into perspective just how small we are and how immense and awesome our God is!
Often, we tend to draw so much together and it can truly be confusing. Today, just one very simple thought:
What if you heard God’s voice? What would you do?
Many know already where I am going with this yet, I want to challenge you in the simplicity of it. God’s Word – the Bible – is all we have; it is all we know of God. We have His every Word that He wanted us to have.
Matthew 4:4 “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.“
Reading His Word to hear His voice. Is it our daily goal? If we don’t, does it matter? Do we have a hunger to hear from Him and His Word?
As a saved child of God in a relationship with the God of Heaven, I do not believe we can live very long without sustaining and maintaining that relationship to keep it vibrant and alive. No real relationship could exist in silence.
God longs to have us draw close to Him. He longs to reveal more of Himself to us. He did not save us to leave us alone.
Many of us have a favorite passage, chapter or story of the Bible. Why is that? Could it be that God spoke to a need, brought comfort, revealed truth, exposed sin or just covered us in His love? Somehow, the Holy Spirit of God touched us in such a way that made the words come alive. There have even been times when the very thing we read spoke so clearly to a specific need that we wondered;
‘Is this really God speaking to me?’
We must gather evidence to the fact that the God of Heaven IS real and loves us so much that He longs to live with us, talk with us daily.
If today you hear His voice… will you answer?
