DAY 18

Committed to Hearing God’s Voice

John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”

“The real problem of the Christian life comes where people do not usually look for it. It comes the very moment you wake up each morning. All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all back; in listening to that other Voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day.” – C. S. Lewis, 1900-1963

To read and study God’s Word lays the foundation for all growth and discipleship for the follower of Christ. However, the Bible is a Living Word that has not been given to us solely for information and education. God wants to speak to each one of His children – to teach and correct, to lead and direct, to keep and protect.

Hebrews 4:12 “For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.”

For this to take place daily we need to hear His word within the Word – to receive the intended word He has for us.

I think I hear His voice…
