Here are three voices that can keep us distracted. Today, I want to share about the one voice that really matters. There is only one voice that matters for all of eternity. There is only one voice of approval that matters. There is only one voice of significance that matters. The Voice that matters most:
The Voice of our Father in Heaven.
Matthew 3:16-17 says, “After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened & he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove & settling on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.”
Before his public ministry. Before people were healed. Before the blind could see. Before thousands were fed on a hillside. Before the WORK, God reminded His Son and reminds us – we already have His affirmation.
We don’t work FOR His approval. We work FROM the approval we have already been given.
Before you win or lose, God has turned his face toward you and He is pleased.
When you know where to look and whose voice to listen to our lives become less complicated.
I have nothing to prove because I am already approved.
Never forget this – In Christ, WHO you are matters so much more than WHAT you do!
God’s Voice is so powerful that He literally only needed to SPEAK the world into existence. (Genesis 1)
God’s voice is also like a gentle whisper. (1 Kings 19:12-13) He gets close enough to us to have a relationship with His children.
God is always speaking. Will you take time to listen?
Revelation 3:20: “Look! I stand at the door & knock. If you hear MY VOICE & open the door, I will come in, & we will share a meal (communion) together as friends.
You already have His affirmation. Stop and take time to LISTEN for what is already yours.
God is ALWAYS speaking. We rarely take time to LISTEN to His voice.
Where are you facing a dead end right now? Financial, emotional, relational? It may feel like a wall, but it’s not really a wall. It is a door.
God can see a path that you don’t know about!
Jesus said it best – “My sheep listen to my VOICE; I know them and they follow me.” (John 10:27)
Trust His VOICE & Follow His Way.
