Listening for His Voice
Devotional thought from the messages of Adrian Rogers
Proverbs 7:24 – “Hearken unto Me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of My mouth.”
The United States Government doesn’t teach Treasury agents to detect counterfeit bills by having them study fakes. They show these agents real dollars over and over and over until they have the pattern memorized. Then, when a counterfeit is put in front of them, they recognize it instantly because it doesn’t fit the pattern their eyes are looking for. Do you know the voice of the Lord? The only way you can be sure that it is His voice you are hearing is to hear it so often that a stranger’s voice is instantly recognizable. It is far wiser to spend time learning the One True Voice than it is trying to learn to detect a multitude of false voices.
Spend at least 15 minutes today being silent before God and listening for His voice.
