The Voice of the Lord

Engaging God's voice is one of the most significant investments we can make as believers in Christ. The investment we are creating is spending time with Jesus, our bridegroom! We can hear and see how God wants to communicate through His relationship with us. In the book of Psalms, chapter 29, King David writes about his mystical encounters with the voice of God. The revelation David received was about the different manifestations of the voice of God. The manifestations range from being powerful and full of majesty, breaking the cedars of Lebanon, and shaking the wilderness, to name a few.


My Sheep Hear My Voice


Learning to hear God's voice is how we live and walk by the Spirit. We are to be led by the Spirit of God in everything we do. Jesus tells Nicodemus about being born of the Spirit.


5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ''You must be born again.'' 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit." John 3:5-8.


God the Father gives His Spirit without measure so that we can receive the deep things of God. The Holy Spirit wants us to be able to hear, see, touch, feel, and taste in the Spirit. We are to engage God with our whole being. We are to be filled with the Spirit every day! Jesus wants us to experience the things above where he sits. As believers in Christ, the more we see and hear in a heavenly place, the more we testify to what the Lord is doing on earth as it is in heaven. John the Baptist understood this reality!


27 John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven. 28 You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ''I am not the Christ,'' but, ''I have been sent before Him.'' 29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom, but the bridegroom's friend, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore, this joy of mine is fulfilled. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; no one receives His testimony. 33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true. 34 For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure. John 3:27-34



There are so many mysteries that Jesus is revealing to the saints. However, we are not receiving his testimony because we are not spending time with him and getting acquainted with his voice. We are not dedicating ourselves to hearing and seeing in the Spirit. It's problematic!


One solution to the problem is spending time in the word of God (the Bible). From Genesis to Revelation, we are given powerful testimonies about how we can regularly experience encounters with the Godhead. 


''Call to Me, and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.' ' Jeremiah 33:3


The above verse from Jeremiah invites us to spend time with the bridegroom. Not only as friends but as sons and daughters of Father God!


6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba, Father!" 7 Therefore, you are no longer a slave but a son; if a son, then an heir of God through ChristGalatians 4:6-7


Blessings!
