"He is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts" (Psalm 95:7-8 NIV). Listening to God's Voice "God wants us to experience His love, not just to know about it intellectually. If anything frees us to hear the Good Shepherd's voice on a daily basis, it is knowing how wide and long and high and deep is His love for us. Knowing and experiencing His love frees us daily to keep His Commandments. God's desire is that we hear and obey on a daily basis His Commandments, which are summed up in loving God and loving others. Guidance on how to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 22:37-39) is found by listening to the Word of God, the Spirit of God and the people of God" (Steve Masterson). Prayer Lord, thank You for the time we have on earth. We want to use that time to do Your will and to listen to Your voice. Help us to tune out the distractions of life, so that we will know when You are prompting us to act. Please remind us of Your great love for us, demonstrated through Jesus' sacrifice. Thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to guide us and to help us. We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
