One Voice Two Responses

The voice of God speaks, roars, thunders, and we all hear it, some gather (John 10:3-4) to His voice and others scatter (Psalm 68:1) at the sound of His voice. One voice, the voice of God, heard by all, but two completely different responses to the voice. Psalm 100:3 says, “Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.” There is no such thing as a self-made man (woman). We have all been made by God and in that making He put inside of us the sound of His voice. We all hear the voice of God, for God designed us that way. This is why when we hear the voice of God we either gather to Him or scatter far from Him. We all know His voice.

As I was praying Psalm 100 this morning all these thoughts came to me. Praying the Psalms yields so much insight into the word of God, the heart of God and into us the people of God. It is amazing to me that One voice, the voice of God can either cause us to gather to Him or scatter from Him, depending on who we are in relation to Him. While meditating on this thought, John 10 rang in my spirit, because this is where Jesus declares Himself to be the Good Shepherd. What stuck me in John 10 was verse 5 which says, “A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.” We flee from strangers and gather to those we know. Selah.

We were made with the ability to hear the voice of God, we were taught to trust the voice of a stranger. Now many people trust the voice of a stranger and flee from the voice of God. Psalm 100:3 says, Know that the Lord Himself is God. If we know God we will gather to Him when He speaks, but if we don’t know God we will scatter/flee from Him as though He is a stranger. The voice of God people know, they know it, so it is time to bind the voice of the stranger people believe is trustworthy and loose them in order to hear the voice of God who is a Good Shepherd. We were made to know the voice of God.
