Prayer

I hear His voice and He hears mine.

I made this statement the other day and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. I was speaking of prayer. That communion between God and man. It’s not just about making your wants known. It’s about talking not to Him, but with Him. And it’s very important to know that He said that we do hear His voice and He says He hears ours.

Today, I want to share some scriptures to help build your faith in this area.

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17, KJV)

I originally included this scripture to encourage you that the scriptures would build your faith. However, as you can see it also mentions your hearing. Hearing comes by the Word of God. How do you know you’ve heard God’s voice? Ask yourself, “Does it agree with His Word?”

Bind them continually upon your heart and tie them about your neck. When you go, they [the words of your parents’ God] shall lead you; when you sleep, they shall keep you; and when you waken, they shall talk with you. (Proverbs 6:21-22, Amplified)

Know His Word and you will know His voice.

To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice; and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. (John 10:3-5, KJV)

…You have given me the capacity to hear and obey… (Psalm 40:6, Amplified)

His sheep hear his voice. He said so. That makes it so. Believe and receive. Don’t say, “I can’t hear God”. Agree with God, by agreeing with His Word. “Thank You Father that I do hear Your voice.”

In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare [a prayer, a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for you to speak to my heart]. (Psalm 5:3, Amplified)

I have called upon You, O God, for You will hear me… (Psalm 17:6, Amplified)

Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. (Psalm 55:17, KJV)

God will hear… (Psalm 55:19, Amplified)

O You Who hear prayer… (Psalm 65:2, Amplified)

He Who planted the ear, shall He not hear? (Psalm 94:9, Amplified)

He hears your voice. He hears your prayers. How awesome is that!

…Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. [So I went with him, and when we were climbing the rocky steps up the hillside, my beloved shepherd said to me] O my dove, [while you are here] in the seclusion of the clefts in the solid rock, in the sheltered and secret place of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely. (Song of Solomon 2:13-14, Amplified)

“Do I take time to meet my Good Shepherd each day, letting Him tell me of His love…” (footnote to Song of Solomon 2:13, Amplified)

“Do I realize that my voice… is sweet to Him…” (footnote to Song of Solomon 2:14, Amplified)

I hear His voice and He hears mine.

One thought on “Prayer

  1. Love the footnotes to one of your favorite passages! God is so good! How many things can you pull out of this one, small passage? I’ve always read it in light of love, not of hearing. Awesome!
