Hear His Voice

Love always communicates. Our Father above loves you and all of his children. When God is speaking, love is speaking to your heart. God has things to say to you. His love is personal and intimate with you as a believer. "For his Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that we are God's children" (Romans 8:16, NLT).

Remember these words from an old hymn? "And He walks with me and He talks with me; and He tells me I am His own; and the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known." God communicates his love to you. He speaks to you through the Holy Spirit. His voice is not known to your ears. God's voice is real to your heart. "Today if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts" (Hebrews 3:15).

The Holy Spirit speaks through Scripture. It's God's love letter to you. The Holy Spirit inspired the words of Scripture centuries ago, but He still speaks through it. Those who believe not, can only read printed words on paper. Believers read words that speak to their hearts. The still quiet voice of the Spirit of the living God speaks with love and grace.

The Holy Spirit speaks to the hearts of all God's children. He shares God's thoughts with you. They are eternal thoughts from the Father above. Thoughts that encourage you, console and comfort you. His thoughts strengthen you and assure you. "God is love" (1 John 4:8). And, love communicates.
