Listening

“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.” Psalm 95:8

Something that has always bothered me is the fact that I have not heard the actual voice of God. I know he is speaking to me, and I know that I have been listening, but I am jealous of those who can actually hear his voice. The ones who have seen or heard him in the night, or at their time of need. Yes, I am jealous of those who have had this experience.

I suppose there is a reason for everything. I am just a visual person, and sometimes I want just a sign from God that is a blast. I have always wanted a huge sign from God that I am doing the right things, making the right decisions, following the path that I am supposed to be on. I don’t know, I may be alone in this, but I am sure that I am not. I know that I am like many Americans who have to know the “future”, plan for things, and be on the “winning” side of things. No one really aims to go down the wrong path in life, and no one wants to waste time.

So, then this line comes up today. I read it very early this morning, and it really just spoke to everything that I have been hearing, seeing, and listening for. Just relax, eventually I will know that I am on the correct path. I have to be patient and know that God is going to ensure that I am taken care of. I don’t have to hear Him, and I don’t hate to be upset over the fact that I haven’t. Unlike the latest fads, news stories, the Facebook, or the twitter feeds… God works in his own time, and there is nothing that will ever change that. His time is always spot on, and I have come to realize that. I actually was upset with myself for being so angry this morning at not having a sign.  I was upset that I actually had no patience, and I should have.

God works in ways that I can not explain, and in ways that no one can fully understand. I don’t have to be given a grand sign… I should just be grateful of the ones that are around me everyday.
