Today, I want to share with you about something higher that is going to change your life. That is the voice of God.
Now 1 Corinthians 14:10 tells us that, “There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification” (1 Corinthians 14:10). Now this means that all the voices are significant. When something is significant, it means, it is important to you and that is why it is being mentioned. That is why elections ae even talked about so that the average person in town takes them seriously because who you vote for can and does always personally affect you. When 1 Corinthians 14:10 tells us that none of these voices are without significance, it means that all voices will and do have an effect on you whether you think so or not.
The greatest voice is the voice of God which you must believe and listen to. “I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me. So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels. Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways! I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries. The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured forever. He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee” (Psalms 81:10-16). Now why did God not do all these things that He spoke about for the Israelites? Verse 11 holds the answer to this question, “But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me”. Listening and obeying the voice of God is key to your advancement in life. When you listen to God, He will give you the finest of wheat with honey! If you are saying you do not know how or where to hear the voice of God, which will lead you to the greatest prosperity and success of your life, you need to look at Luke 10:16. It says, “He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me (Luke 10:16)”. When you listen to a disciple of Jesus speaking, you are hearing God himself speak. The other thing you can see when it comes to a minister who is speaking the word of God is despisement. The two main responses we have to God’s word is to listen or to set it aside. I have been despised many times. When you preach and somebody sets it aside, you realize they do not value it. To despise is to cast off, set aside and disesteem. In other words, to lower and neutralize. What people do not realize is that when you set aside God’s word, you have belittled it to the words of a man. All you have to do is despise the servant of God and you have despised Jesus and God. It is a chain reaction. There is no station or network that is directly tuned to God’s voice from heave. You will have to deal with people to hear the voice of God. Receive the grace to recognize and know the voice of God in this year of good things.
