Do you remember a time when you were separated by a great distance from someone you loved? Your parents. Your spouse. Your child. Do you remember those phone calls you waited for. You picked up the phone and said, “It’s so good to hear your voice.”
We love to hear the voice of the ones we love. God loves you and He loves to hear your voice.
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)
He wants to see your face. He wants to hear your voice.
This morning I was up before my husband. By the time he woke up, I had discovered a problem that needed attending to. As he entered the room I was about to tell him and I had this thought, “I don’t want the first thing I say to him, the first thing he hears from me to be about some problem.”
As I sat with Daddy (God) this morning, there were things on my heart that needed attending to, but I just spent the morning telling Daddy thank You for loving me and telling Him how much I loved Him.
As I sat and let Him see my face and let Him hear my voice, I began to see His ‘face’ and hear His voice.
And the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. (Exodus 33:11, Amplified)
As I simply sat with God and talked to Him, I began to see answers to my questions, provision for my needs and I hadn’t even expressed them to Him. I was just letting Him tell me of His love for me as I was loving Him.
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)
…When you pray, say: Father… (Luke 11:2, NIV)
Let your Father hear your voice today.
