My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
- John 10:27
Your shepherd longs to speak to you and for you to hear His voice!
Hearing the Lord’s voice is not only for a select chosen or spiritually elite, it is for all of His precious children. You are one of them!
Just like any relationship with our loved ones, knowing their character and what their voice sounds like requires spending time with them.
When you are close to someone dear to you, you know how they act and speak. Their character and who they are become familiar to you. You are able to easily tell them apart from a crowd of strangers and even apart from other loved ones.
Spending quality time with the Lord is vital to knowing the voice of your shepherd.
The closer you are to the Lord, the clearer His voice becomes!
Being with God in His word and spending time in prayer consistently, the more you will come to know who He is and what His voice sounds like.
Today, be encouraged to know The Good Shepherd longs for you to hear His voice as He watches over you and guides you in your path. He longs to spend time with you more than you realize!
Prayer: Lord, I desire to hear your voice. Help me to be more sensitive to you, Holy Spirit. Stir in me a hunger to spend more time with you and sit in your presence.
