Do you need Jesus to guide you today? Do you know you can hear him speaking to you?
Jesus said, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27 NKJV
The Bible is not saying you SHOULD or COULD… it’s saying you DO hear his voice!
You don’t need someone else to help you hear Jesus. You don’t need a translator to explain his words.
You are his sheep. You already know his voice!
So how does a Christian hear the voice of Jesus and follow him today?
“Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.” Matthew 24:35 NLT
The words of Jesus are written in the Bible, and they are written to you. Have you read them? Are you reading them again… and again?
“For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.” John 4:24, Romans 8:14 NLT
Today, Jesus does not speak in an audible voice with his mouth to your ear.
He is a Spirit. He speaks as a Spirit to your spirit.
Be very quiet.
Turn off the music.
Put away the entertainment.
Go away from the voices of other people.
Deep inside, you already know.
Which do you feel is the right direction?
What do you think is the right thing to do?
Don’t ignore your ‘gut feel’.
There’s something tugging at you inside, gently urging you to move in one direction.
It may not make sense.
You may not feel like doing it.
Just take one step. Just do the next thing.
And the leading will be there again, guiding you to take the next step.
One step, one word.
One word, one step.
Word by word.
Step by step.
Dear friend, that’s how Jesus will guide you through his Holy Spirit. That’s how you hear him speaking to you!
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
