THE STORY OF JESUS: Psalm 95
“Today, if only you would hear his voice, do not harden your hearts!” (Psalm 95:8)
This psalm is calling for a response from us when we experience God.
God is always speaking and working in and around us, yet we often miss it.
Many of us will sit in church today, many of us will hear His Voice.
Yet how many will listen AND respond, and do something with what we hear?
God speaks to us for our good, to show us the better way.
His wisdom leads to life, His way is the way to love, joy, peace, etc.
Jesus came in person to show us God’s Way, and to urge us to join Him in it.
We love to sing songs like this, but singing about God is not what He wants.
He is calling us to “obey everything He commanded” (Matthew 28:19)
We do not need to obey perfectly in order to be saved – Jesus took care of that.
But God does want us to want to do good, to strive with His help to obey.
Grace will help us, if we receive His grace and work with it!
Everyday by grace He is guiding us, warning us, encouraging us…
But are we listening, are we responding, are we obeying?
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, Your rest is the natural result of choosing Your way. We will not find Your rest if we choose to go in the opposite direction. Help me to do more than hear Your Voice, help me to heed it!
