Both yesterday and today I’ve felt myself really tune in to God. I’m cognizant when I am intentionally blocking out other sounds, voices, and influences to focus solely on His voice. When I hear God’s voice and obey, I’m calmer, more relaxed, and patient. I’m also more likely to not do or say something because I am obediently focused on Him.
So to see today’s message and to take note that the scripture is also the date of my birthday, all I could do was smile and share. Enjoy!
Tune in to Him
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”
(John 10:27, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Right now, there are hundreds of radio frequencies in the air, hundreds of television signals all around you. But, you don’t hear them all. The reason is that you’re not tuned in. If you tune a radio or television to one of those frequencies, then you would pick up the signal.
In the same way, God is constantly transmitting to us. He wants to lead us, guide us, protect us and give us insight. But too often, we’re not tuned to His frequency. You have to pay attention to Him and learn His voice. God doesn’t speak to us most of the time out loud. He speaks to us through subtle things. He leads us by peace inside.
The best way to “tune in to His frequency” is by reading and meditating on His Word. The more you know His Word, the more you know His voice. It’s like when you constantly tune in to a radio station and learn that DJ’s voice, you’ll recognize that voice when you are in a restaurant or at the mall. It’s the same idea. Tune in to God’s Word, tune in to Him and let Him lead you and guide you into victory all the days of your life!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for leading me and guiding me in Your truth. I choose to tune in to You, I choose to tune in to Your Word. Help me to hear Your voice so that I can follow Your leading all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen
