It all started with a song. I was sleeping hard, but clearly heard music and words that were very familiar.
You just call out my name
And you know, wherever I am
I’ll come runnin’
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
You’ve got a friend
As the music faded, I startled awake, and whispered in the dark…… ”James Taylor, “You’ve Got a Friend.” And just as the last word faded from my lips, I clearly heard the voice of the Lord. He said, “How easily you know the voice of James Taylor. You don’t question it. You know it. You recognize it. Why do you struggle KNOWING MINE in the same way?”
What voices do you recognize immediately? What voices do you know without a doubt? Shouldn’t we know HIS voice above ALL others? If we don’t…..then we should put EVERYTHING else aside and press in until knowing HIS voice is all we crave. And then we should LISTEN with our entire heart, strength, and soul so that we don’t ever miss HIS voice again.
Speak, Lord. For your servant is listening.
