4 Biblical ways to hear the Voice of GOD today.

 

In the quietness of the night, I have often heard the still voice of God whispering my name. Sometimes He will point me to a Scripture to rebuke me of my unconfessed sins or comfort me about a hurtful incident.

I prefer to do the talking most times, but the Lord wants me to hush so that I can be obedient to His command.

I listen carefully to what God the LORD is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people. Psalm 85:8,NLT

Young Samuel recognized the voice of God calling unto Him in the middle of the night. He had never heard it before , but his reply “Speak Lord, they servant heareth” must be the very answer we must give to our Creator.

The following hymn written by Frances Ridley Havergal has caught my attention. This amazing hymn writer lived on this earth for only 42 years, but her vision to hear the voice of God is truly inspiring.

“Master, speak! Thy servant heareth,
Waiting for Thy gracious word,
Longing for Thy voice that cheereth;
Master! let it now be heard.
I am listening, Lord, for Thee:
What hast Thou to say to me?

Speak to me by name, O Master,
Let me know it is to me;
Speak, that I may follow faster,
With a step more firm and free,
Where the Shepherd leads the flock,
In the shadow of the rock.

Master, speak! Though least and lowest,
Let me not unheard depart;
Master, speak! For O, Thou knowest
All the yearning of my heart,
Knowest all its truest need:
Speak! and make me blest indeed.

Master, speak! and make me ready,
When Thy voice is truly heard,
With obedience glad and steady
Still to follow every word.
I am listening, Lord, for Thee:
Master, speak! O, speak to me! “

About Diana

I am a daughter, sister, wife, and mom to my triplets. Each of these God given roles have shaped me to be the woman I am today. My blog is about how I have found God to be alive in me through the lessons I keep on learning each day. Through the storms and songs in the darkest hour I saw God standing with me.
Christianity is not a religion to me but a personal relationship I have with my Creator who so freely gave His life for me .
Dear Friend, I pray that you too will know this Savior who died not only for your SINS but also for all your SORROWS on the Cross. May you be found in HIM.

Philippians 3:14 (KJV) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
