A Word Behind
Isaiah 30:21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk in it, when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. #Bible
I believe God is speaking to us all the time, I mean 24-7, and if we want to hear Him its up to us to tune Him in. You have to be listening to hear what’s said behind you.
When I was a kid my family traveled across country a couple of times, and when we would listen to the am radio (that’s all there was). As we would pass through a city the signal was strong, but the further away we got away, the more we had to keep tuning it in. This is how it is with God. Just like the city, God is stationary, we are the ones who keep moving around, thus the necessity to keep tuning Him in.
Of course the easiest way to hear our Lord speak to us is by reading the Bible. If you want to hear God, well read out loud. The voice is yours but the Words are His.
Staying on a continual diet of God’s Word keeps our own conscience’s finely tuned and attentive to the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
Like Israel, nothing good will happen as long as we are off worshipping idols, or wandering away from God because our lust is leading us away from Him.
It’s only when we move close to our Lord that we enjoy His Blessings and guidance through this life. Without our Lord Jesus leading us we are just groping in the dark, unable to hear a word behind us telling us the way to go.
