My Monday Prayer: The Sound of His Voice
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley
The Sound of His Voice
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
His voice and speech are exceedingly sweet;
yes, He is altogether lovely [the whole of Him delights and is precious]. This
is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem! Song of Songs 5:16 AMPC
Jesus’s voice brings the sweetest sound, the deepest love, the wisest
words, the surest way, the greatest comfort, and the fullest life.
It is better to hear His voice than the voice of strangers, better to
know His guidance than to be led astray, better to know His counsel than follow
wrong opinions; better to believe His truth than the lies of the enemy.
Jesus said that His sheep hear His voice. If you hear a voice you do not recognize, do not respond. Wrong voices take you to wrong places. It is through Jesus’s words that you will know His will, His ways, and His heart.
My Monday Prayer
Oh Father, please remove all the noise around me and help me to hear Your quiet, still voice. I need to quiet my soul and sit with You, as if I were a child who could climb on Your lap, draw near to Your chest, and hear Your heart beat in my ear. I want to hear Your whispers, Your songs of love, Your statements of truth, Your declarations of love.
Give me courage and discernment to turn away from the voices of others, the lies, distractions, and deceitfulness that the world spews out trying to distort Your words and truth. Help me to turn away from the falsities that are empty and damaging, and turn towards the truth of Your love. Then help me to share Your love with others, and to love others like You do. We all need Your love, and to know the sound of Your voice. In Jesus' Name, amen.
