Hear God’s voice

30 January 2024 ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says.’ Revelation 2:11 NKJV

You can read the same Scripture at different times, and it’ll speak to you in totally different ways. The Greek philosopher Heraclitus is credited with saying, ‘You never step into the same river twice.’ And you never read the same Bible verse the same way twice. That’s a testament to its heavenly author. And His illumination and revelation of Scripture to you is based on His intimate and unlimited knowledge of your circumstances, your desires, your fears, your past, your personality, and your destiny. But you must take time to listen and cultivate your sensitivity to what He’s saying. There’s a story of a music trainer hired to work with opera singers who couldn’t hit certain notes even though they fell within their vocal range. It was a musical mystery. The trainer did extensive testing on their vocal cords, but he couldn’t find any reason why they couldn’t hit those notes. Then, on a whim, he tested their hearing. And what he discovered was that these opera singers couldn’t sing a note they couldn’t hear. The problem wasn’t singing. The problem was hearing. ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says.’ Until you hear the voice of God, you won’t be able to sing His song, because you’re out of tune with Him. That’s how we get trapped in sinful lifestyles and negative cycles and destructive patterns. But when you open up the Bible and truly hear the voice of God – His loving voice, His affirming voice, His graceful voice, His convicting voice, His authoritative voice, His powerful voice – your life begins to harmonise with the Holy Spirit.
