Hebrews 3:15 says “Remember what it says: “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled.'” This passage is referring to an original passage in Psalm 95, but this morning it really speaks to me. The scripture doesn’t say “Today IF you hear his voice…” It very clearly says when. Today WHEN you hear his voice. So I ask myself…will I be listening for his voice today when he speaks? Will I be in tune with the Spirit and listening for the voice to speak? Or will I allow the noise of the world to drown out what he has for me today? And when I hear his voice speak to me, what will I do with it? Will I follow the prompting of the spirit? (James 4:17 – If you know what you ought to do and don’t do it…). WIll I hear but then decided to do things my own way today?
My prayer this morning is that WHEN I hear the sweet voice of the Spirit today I will listen with an open heart and follow. That I will not be too distracted or caught up in my day to hear the voice that guides me in the right was, but instead I will be so in tune with the Spirit that it drowns everything else out – the doubts, the fears, the negative talk around me. I pray that I will hear and receive what is given to me today…with a willing heart.
