The Voice

There is nothing more heart warming than hearing the voice of a loved one saying “Hi, I’m home” or a baby when they utter their first word and their voice is revealed. You may have been told or have told someone, “It’s so great to hear your voice”. Perhaps even heard the words, “Just hearing your voice makes me feel better”.  You have a one of a kind voice. It is as unique as your fingerprint and its sound is distinguishable from any other. It’s so unique that when you are on the phone others can identify you by your voice. 

God knows your voice. He cherishes its uniqueness and can distinguish it from all of the world’s noise. Your voice is a gift and you choose the way to use it. You can use it to speak up against injustice or to gossip and complain. It can be a vehicle to encourage or cast as a weapon in tearing others down. It has the potential to acknowledge and speak out against evil or remain silent and allow evil to triumph. Your voice can be raised up in praise and blessing or to curse the situation you find yourself in.

God desires to have you speak to and cry out to him. He also longs to hear you use your voice to fill others up with hope and to inspire the weary; to tell someone they matter, are important and to not give up. Often just a word of kindness and care can make all the difference. God knows this too and is speaking to you. You may hear his voice through the words of a loved one or raised by an individual you pause to acknowledge and get to know.

Of all the voices you will ever hear, God’s voice is the one that matters most. Take the time to be quiet and listen. When you do you will find he will provide a word that is incredibly meaningful or an entire conversation impressed upon the silence of your heart.

“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.” Jeremiah 33:3
