My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27
A Recognizable Voice
If you have ever been in a pre-school or a kiddie daycare you know it is chaos at all times. There are kids running everywhere. There are screens blaring, children screaming and Baby Shark is in constant rotation. It is loud, there is a lot of action, and you can never tell what is going to happen next. Yet, there is an amazing thing that will happen. If you are there at pick up time, you will see that in the midst of chaos when mommy or daddy shows up and says their child’s name, no matter what they are doing, they stop, turn around and come running.
A child knows the sound of their parent’s voice. Since they were in the womb that has been the voice they know best. They know the tone, the resonance, and the pitch of their parent’s voice so well that even in the midst of chaos, they hear and respond to the voice of their parent. That is how well we should know the voice of God. It should be clear, resonant, and distinct to the believer. The believer should be able to hear the voice of God over the roar of the crowd, the chatter of the world and the chaos of life.
Friends, like a child, knows the voice of their parents we should all know the voice of God. When we know the voice of God he can cut through our issues, we can hear him over the noise and we can follow him even in the midst of confusion. The best way to know the voice of God is to spend time with him. Spend time in prayer. Spend time in the word. Spend time in silence waiting to hear from him. When we do what it takes to learn the voice of God we will always be able to hear the voice of God. So do what you must so that next time you are in chaos you can hear and recognize the voice of your Father.
