Listening to God's Voice

"And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left." Thus, in clear and simple words, Isaiah expresses the comforting promise that God will speak to His children and direct them in all their ways. And yet, in spite of this definite promise of guidance, mortals continue to falter, grope blindly, and stumble, attempting to rely on their own limited ability to make decisions—to choose which step they shall take next, which path they shall follow.

"But," we sometimes say, "gladly would I turn to an all-wise guide for direction, but I am not able to hear God's voice pointing out the way." Can we not remember that in past experiences we have discovered that, in order to avail ourselves of God's blessings, we invariably have some requirement to meet? We must reach out to God if we are to receive the true sense of supply; we must look up to Him if we are to make ourselves better men and women; and we must listen if we are to hear Him speaking to us. We love to sing that beautifully tender hymn, "Feed My Sheep" (Poems, p. 14), written by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. With constantly renewed fervor should we strive to keep the promise we repeat:
