Our faith tends to be “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.”* The question is, What does Jesus’ voice sound like to you?
Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.
To use an old analogy, God the Father uses the cross of Jesus as an antenna to speak to us. We each have a “radio” to hear His voice, but we don’t have the frequency. The Holy Spirit helps us to “dial in” to God’s voice. In fact, He is our power source for running our radios!
Henry Blackaby listed four general ways how we hear God speak to us: The Scriptures, prayer, people, and circumstances. The idea is to focus on hearing His voice through all the “static” we get from this world and our own minds (a topic we will discuss tomorrow).
Abba, May we hear You more clearly every day as we “press on toward the goal” set before us. Help us to remove, or at least disregard, the obstacles that keep us from hearing You clearly. You are our Prize, Lord Jesus. Amen.
