The Voice

"The gatekeeper opens the gate for Him, and the sheep recognize His voice and come to Him. He calls His own sheep by name and leads them out.After He has gathered His own flock, He walks ahead of them, and they follow Him because they know His Voice", John 10:3-4. There is a popular reality tv show, "The Voice". Some of you may have watched it. The contestants have lovely singing voices, and there is fun comradery between the four judges. But there is another, better Voice, The Voice of The Great Shepherd, Jesus Christ. This Voice cares for His people, keeps us from harm, and communes with us tenderly. This Voice leads us through our life, loves us through our pain, and lightens our pathway. This Voice surrounds us with Peace, saves us by His blood, and smooths out our rough places. I am for Team Jesus! "But for those who are righteous, the way is not steep and rough. You are a God who does what is right, and you smooth out the path ahead of them", Isaiah 26:7.


  1. I have heard that voice, and will never follow another!
    Funny, but I wrote a draft post about sheep and the shepherd last night. I still don't know if I'll publish it or not. God might be warning us about not following after strange voices? Maybe He doesn't want us to be decieved by anything that is not of Him. i don't know, but I better listen closely.
    ~God Bless~

  2. Good example Peggy; if we listen very closely and look all around us, we nearly always hear the voice of God or get an indirect message from Him every time we are in need or He is trying to lay something upon our hearts. If we want to hear God’s voice then we must be ready to listen! :)
