📖: Job 38:1-41
Confession: Psalm 91
Memory Verse: John 6:63
Life they is full of many surprises and choices to make. Knowing the right choice to make inspired today’s topic; ‘The Voice of God. Right from creation of Adam and Eve, God wants to fellowship and communicate with us. The Word of God is very encouraging and assures us of God’s plans for our lives (Jeremiah 29:11). The Word of God is the Bible, that’s full of promises of God, and it energizes our spirit. ‘THE WORD OF GOD’ is ‘THE VOICE OF GOD’, and according to Psalm 29:3-4 says “The voice of the Lord is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The Lord is over many waters. The voice of Lord is powerful; The voice of the Lord is full of majesty”.
The essence of hearing God’s voice is for us to be guided, directed, and lead in fulfilling our purpose in life. To hear the voice of God, we must belong to the body of Christ, and “Anyone who belongs to God listens gladly to the words of God” (John 8:47), and the Holy Spirit dwells within us and we must be eager to listen to His voice as it is written in John 10:27 which says “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me”. As believers, some of us struggle with being able to differentiate between the voice of God from our desires and emotions. Some of us don’t even recognize His voice.
As believers, some of us can hear God’s voice audible, and sometimes we hear through the Holy Spirit, His Word, our conscience, and even from situations going on in our lives. In order to hear the voice of God, we need to train our ears to recognize the voice of God (Hebrews 5:14), and according to Isaiah 30:21, when we train our ears, we will hear a voice behind us, saying “This is the way; walk in it”. When we hear the voice of God,we will be able to differentiate it from our emotions, desires, or powers of darkness because God’s voice stills us, leads, calms, reassures, encourages, comforts, and convicts us. Let us strive and learn by what means God speaks to us, and not merely listen to the Word of God which is the Voice of God, but trust, obey, and do what it says to without deceiving ourselves (James 1:22). For those yet to surrender their lives to Jesus, this is not negotiable, do so now, tomorrow might be too late! DO IT NOW!
