He Who Has Ears, Let Him Hear
14161 Views

There are certain voices you just know as soon as you hear them. My husband has one of those voices. He sounds different to me than any other person and others have told me he has a very distinguishable voice as well. And of course, to me, it’s the most beautiful. Especially when he says my name.

But there’s one voice I long to hear whisper my name, the voice of my Lord, Jesus.

“The LORD also spake unto Joshua”. (Joshua 20:1)

Can you imagine hearing the voice of God speak audibly to you? How incredible! In those days, God spoke to His people where they could literally hear Him. So why doesn’t He do that today?

Because we have the very Word of God before us and the Living Word within us.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

Let that sink in for a minute. Our Lord, Jesus Christ, is the very Word of God.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

And the Bible I hold in my hands right now, the Word, is alive!

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)

While I may not hear the voice of my Lord spoken audibly to me until I get to Heaven, I hear Him daily through His word and in that still, small voice within my heart. He is the one that nudges me to pray. He is the one that encourages me to reach out to someone in need. It’s His voice that convicts and corrects me when I do wrong. It’s His voice that fills me with peace. It’s His voice that guides me on the path to righteousness.

But will I listen? Will you?

He that hath an ear, let him hear.

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” (Revelation 3:20-22)
