On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet. (Rev. 1:10)
“Dad, I am here!” This statement echoed right behind me as I was searching for my twelve-year-old son, Caleb. We had just finished watching a soccer game at a local stadium. On our way out of this crowded sports facility, I lost sight of my son, and it was becoming impossible to locate him. For a moment, I panicked, not knowing where my boy was.
I kept looking around desperately for him, until finally, I heard his voice calling out to me, “Dad, I am here!” Understandably, I was so relieved as I walked over to him and we were reunited again.
We live in a culture of hastiness at all times. We have places to be and schedules to keep. We are all surrounded by different forms of confusion and worldly noises, or our heads are bowed to a gadget of some sort in our hands. However, do we take time to be with the Lord and hear the voice of the Spirit concerning our lives?
What and whose voice is louder in your life: the voice of the stock markets or the latest gossip on a TV show? Is it the voice of a popular politician or the news channel? In these last days, you must intentionally hear the voice of the Lord for your spiritual well-being.
Seek to be familiar with God’s spiritual voice in your life.
