Connecting with the Voice of God
What is unique about Christianity, among the different religions or faith systems in the world, is the fact that there is a personal relationship with the Creator, beginning here and now, and lasting throughout eternity. In the other religions, there is usually a rewards system in place. People perform and try to live a good life so that they can have rewards. It is only with Christianity wherein people are able to live a good life because of the relationship God initiated with them.
Jesus also declared, “And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God” (Jn. 17: 3). Many in the church community miss the great blessing of fellowship with our Lord because we have lost the ability to recognize the voice of God. We forget that God did not leave us alone to fend for ourselves, and that God truly desires to have a real relationship with us. In John 10:27, Jesus promised that his sheep will hear his voice, and too many believers are starved for that intimate relationship that alone can satisfy the desires of their hearts.
Humans have a God-shape void in their hearts that only God can fill. They try to fill these things with so many other things. They try to fill this void through relationships, by trying to attain fame, by trying to be successful, by trying to accumulate wealth, and through so many things. However, all these things all fall short.
People end up feeling unsatisfied and empty. Most of the time, those sheep are unable to identify the voice of my Shepherd. We also hunger for deeper spiritual intimacy with God. We just need to be aware of how we listen to the Holy Spirit’s voice. Act on holy thoughts and devote some time to focused hearing and learning to hear His voice. It is the Lord who calls you to invest time in Him.
