TOPIC: God’s Voice

TODAY’S READING

James 1:22-25

KEY VERSE: [The Good Shepherd’s] sheep follow him because they know his voice. – John 10:4 (NIV)

MESSAGE

Following a serious illness, I awoke from a three-week “sleep” unable to move, talk, swallow, or hear. I recovered most of my abilities with time, but my hearing was permanently impaired. I was declared profoundly deaf.

Months later, I tried very powerful hearing aids, and I was shocked when the silence around me was broken. However, most of what I heard was just mechanical noise that made little sense to me and was overwhelming. Amazingly, my husband’s voice could cut through that noise, especially when I could focus on his face as he talked. His familiar voice brought me comfort, grounded me, and helped me understand what others were saying to me.

Similarly, I believe that God’s voice can cut through the frightening noise of the world around us. The more we focus on God and the more familiar we become with God’s word, the more readily we can hear God speaking to us each day.
