If ever, there was a time for us to be able to hear the voice of God, it is now. As the world descends further into darkness (away from God), Christians will find that it is dangerous to express and hold to God’s commandments.
We need to know Him, love Him, recognize His voice and hold onto His promises at this time:
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; Your rod and staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23: 4-6
The author of the best-selling book, Experiencing God, Henry Blackaby is one of my favourite expounders of scripture. Before you reflect on 2015 and plan ahead for 2016 may I suggest you listen to him teach on Recognizing the Voice of God.
