Listening for His Voice
We spend a great deal of our day speaking and listening.  We talk to friends, to family even to people we don't know.  We listen to the radio, to the television, to the internet or to people on the telephone.  I read that we hear somewhere in the neighborhood of between 20,000 to 30,000 words every day.  That's a lot of words!!  But of all the voices we listen to I wonder how much we listen for the Lord's voice.  No, He doesn't speak in an audible voice for us to hear.  It's so often much louder than that.  He speaks to us in His word.  He speaks to us through the Holy Spirit.  He speaks to us through the circumstances of life.  He often speaks to us even through the voice of a friend.  Yet, I wonder if we are listening.  So often we get so busy with life and all it involves that we just don't take the time to listen to what He says to us.  Of all the voices that I hear, and there are a lot of important ones that I need to listen to, yet, His is the most important of all.  His voice keeps me focused on what is truly important in life.  Don't get so busy that you stop listening for His voice.  No wonder the Bible so often says, If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
