Posts Tagged ‘Voice of God’

A little over a year ago, my family relocated to Tallahassee, Florida, from Birmingham, Alabama. Over the past year, Blake has had the opportunity to visit with some of his friends from Birmingham on occasion. He always enjoys hooking back up with his buddies. There are a couple of little guys that as soon as they see each other it is as if we never moved. I love that!

Well out of nowhere tonight, Blake mentioned that he had not seen one of his friends in a long time. He was indeed correct. Over the past year I think Blake had only seen this friend one time. Then Blake followed up with something very interesting. He said, “Man! It’s been so long since I’ve seen him that I forgot the sound of his voice!”

Wow! Forgot the sound of his voice! What an amazing statement from my 7 year old little man. While it saddened me a little bit (even though Blake wasn’t sad when he said it… it was just a matter of fact to him), I found his sincere words to be helpful in my journey of faith!

I never… ever, ever, EVER… want to forget the sound of God’s voice! I want it to be as distinct as the smell of my grandmother’s house, and I want it to be as familiar as my favorite chair. I want it to be as comforting as my wife’s, “I love you”, but I want it to be as disturbing as a police siren when if I’m pushing the speed limit.

I know it is always just ahead of me, and I hope to always follow it!

“…he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know HIS voice.” – John 10:4b
