His Voice

I hear your voice speaking to me

I hear your heart beating for me

If we are quiet, we can hear His still small voice.

If we are loud, His voice can be like mighty rushing waters.

If we are quiet, we can lay our head on His chest and hear His heart beat.

If we are loud, we can hear the pounding heart beat of the tsunami of His love.

Whatever we need today, to hear His voice, to sense His heart,

That is what He will be for us.

His heart is to speak words of life over you.

 

Here is what He wants when we hear His voice;

John 10:27 Common English Bible (CEB)

My sheep listen to my voice. I know them and they follow me.

Here is what is in His heart for us;

2 Peter 3:8 New International Version (NIV)

He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

Lord, Redeemer, Savior

 

God IS the Creator.

We can’t change that.

In order for God to be in us,

In order for Him to be our Shepherd,

In order for Him to be our Peace,

In order for Him to be our Provider,

In order for Him to be our Firm Place to stand,

In order for Him to be our Healer,

In order for Him to be our Light,

In order for Him to be our Strength and Protector,

In order for us to be with Him forever,

He must first be;

*Jehovah – The Lord – Exodus 6:2   God also said to Moses, “I am the LORD.”

*Jehovah-Keren-Yish’i – Horn of Salvation – Ps 18:2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield  and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

*Jehovah-Hoshe’ah – Lord Saves – Psalm 20:9 LORD, give victory to the king!
Answer us when we call!

*Jehovah-Go’el – Lord My Redeemer – Is. 49:26b all mankind will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”

*Isaiah 60:16b  you will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.

*Jehovah-Yasha – Lord my Savior – Isaiah 49:26b all mankind will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”

His desire is to rescue us from this world of sin.

He made that possible through the blood sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ.

In His great, infinite love for you,

He leaves you with the choice.

Won’t you choose him now?

The “Rescue” tab at the top of this page can help you to make that choice.

Just Show Up

A while back, one of our pastors told us that if we did not have a time and a place to meet God, the chances of actually doing it were slim.

I had to agree with him wholeheartedly.

I had established a time and a place,

and meeting God there was on some days the only place I wanted to be.

This intentionality caused my heart to yearn for Him even more.

The more I knew Him, the more I wanted to know Him.

This is still true today.

In fact, many of my Significant Encounters happen in this very place..

What I’ve learned is that when I put myself into the position to find Him,

suddenly, I see Him.                       

Not with my eyes, but with the peace of Him that settles in my heart.

Whatever might happen the rest of the day,

is not as likely to ruffle me as much as if I haven’t spoken to God first.

Note, I said spoken to God?

Well, know that some days I say not one word.

Some days I read my Bible.

Most days I write in my journal.

Somedays I read an inspirational or instructional book.

I even have a little devotional that I like to peruse.

Whatever I sense that is right for the day.

Sometimes it’s an hour or more.

Some days it’s ten minutes.

Long ago, Tommy Barnett taught us that you should “Read until you burn”.

What he meant was simply to stay in that place until you sense His burning in your heart.

In my case, I sense His pleasure with our time together.

There are no set of defined rules.

If there were, these times would grow flat and boring very quickly.

But a time and a place?

Any time best for you.

Any place you can be undisturbed.

What a difference this makes.

Psalm 27:8 (NASB)

When You said, “ Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, O LORD,

I shall I seek”.

Then really, all you have to do is show up!

Do you have a time and a place?
