Hearing God’s Voice
John 8:47 (NLT) “...Anyone who belongs to God listens gladly to the words of God. But you don’t listen because you don’t belong to God.”
“Oh, God! I need to hear from You! Tell me what to do, Father! I need to hear Your voice!!!” How many of us are free enough in Christ to confess that we’ve lamented these words to the Lord in our times of distress? Did it cause us to hear God’s voice in an audible way? Not likely. But God was speaking to us. God is always speaking to us. All of the answers to all of the questions we can ever seek the Lord for are in His Word – the Holy scriptures. When we want to hear God’s voice, we need to read and hear what He says to us in the Bible. This is how we get to know what we are listening for in His voice. What does God sound like? God sounds like His Word. God does not speak through a crowd of people. Our God speaks for Himself.
