Winsome Wednesday - Open to the Voice of the Lord!

Well firstly, sorry this post is so late!  I have been running around since early and completely forgot!  But, rather late than never!

Upper most on my heart today is to be open to the voice of the Lord!  Now I am not sure how you all have heard from the Lord.  I know I haven't heard God's audible voice and I probably would jump out of my skin if I did.  But God certainly speaks to us in ways that we can relate to.  His word is a great source of His voice!  Christian music.  My husband is often humming a song not realizing what he is humming until the words of the song make an impression.  He then realizes the song is an answer or encouragement and he believes its a way the Lord speaks to him.

What about church?  Home cells?  A friend's encouragement!  An advert on TV can get you too.  A book, a story line!  So many ways the Lord can get our attention.  What about in an aisle of the shopping centre?  Yup, many a weird and wonderful thing has gotten my attention, or confirmed something, or well, just made sense.

I often try to trust my gut!  You know, I feel uncomfortable about something and then decide that I will see that as the Lord guiding me.  I feel good about something, or have peace, then I walk in that direction.  Yes, God will "talk" to you if you keep yourself open to Him.  I would caution you though to test everything against the word.  Sometimes we can be influenced by wrong sources!

Anyway, my encouragement to you is to firstly know God wants to communicate with you, and secondly, remain open to Him and His word.  He loves you and wants to be in your life every moment.

Psalm 34 v 4:  I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears

God bless


This is a space to come and be encouraged.  You can link as many posts as you want so long as they bring glory to the Lord.  If you have time, please visit the person ahead of you and I am sure you too will be encouraged.  I look forward to seeing you here.

  1. Thank you for this reminder today to be still and listen for His voice in whatever way He chooses to speak to us. Too often, we send up our prayers and then go about our busy day without remembering to listen to His response. Thanks so much for the link-up!

  2. Amen Tracy! All we need to do is be open.

    Blessings to you my friend...Chelle

  3. I recall moments when I had heard his advice but ignored it - not because I thought I knew better, but didn't recognise that it was HIS voice.
