Listening for God's voice

The sound of birds singing or ocean waves caressing the shore can be beautiful to hear. But the most wonderful thing of all is to hear God speaking to us. As we read in Isaiah, "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" (30:21).

But how can we really listen to and hear God's voice, not only when we're seeking specific direction or healing but at any time? How can we learn to feel His presence? It helps to set apart quiet times each day to commune with our creator in prayer. Our Master, Christ Jesus, said, "When thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly" (Matt. 6:6).

Because he soars!
