It always kind of bothers me when people say,
“I have never heard from God… I mean , like an audible voice.”
The thing is, God is spirit.
His voice rings out.
Just not like you would expect.
The Bible even says, “Today, if you hear His voice, don’t harden your heart…”
That sounds to me like we should be able to hear His voice.
The first time I heard His voice, I thought it was my own thought.
“What does it mean to be born again?”
I had never heard him before… not when I read the Bible…not when I went through my daily routine…never.
But that day, I came to life.
I started to hear him.
I was just starting out in this brand new life.
I knew less than nothing.
My sister and her husband became God’s voice to me.
Speaking words of life, God’s voice, brought life to my new baby spirit.
I would read the Bible.
It was almost like there was a light shining on the words.
They jumped off the page, throwing truth at me.
I had never heard it before, because I was dead.
I had to be brought to life.
Dead men don’t hear.
But, I’m not dead anymore.
I hear Him.
I have to admit, I don’t always get it…
I am, after all, little more than a sheep.
But, even a sheep knows its master’s voice.
