Topic: Psalm 95:6-8
Psalm 95:6-8 (NKJ) Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture, And the sheep of His hand. Today, if you will hear His voice: Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion, As in the day of trial in the wilderness,...
When we worship God, knowing that we are lead by Him and that He is our Creator and Shepherd, we are to LISTEN to Him. The work 'IF' in this scripture..."IF you will hear His voice"...is a conditional word. We have the choice to hear Him or not to hear Him. If we DO hear Him...open our hearts and minds to what He is telling us, with the intention to obey Him....then we will understand where we are to go or what we are to do. If we DO NOT listen to Him, with the attention to obey, we will wander through this life, getting lost and off the 'chosen road'....away from our 'place of purpose'.
I can see a maze. God's voice guides me through that maze to the place at the end...the exit. If I listen to His voice with the intention to obey Him, I'll not get stuck in corners or in wrong turns. I'll find the 'exit' quicker, and without strife or worry. This is the maze of my life. When I worship Him, knowing that He is the one with 'my life's plan', and when I listen to Him with the intention to obey Him, I will go through this life without 'road blocks' or problems. I will find the purpose God has for me in this 'adventure of life'.
Father, help me to never be 'thick-headed' and to always hear Your voice with the intention to obey You! I know You are my Creator and Shepherd. Help me to always find YOUR way through this maze of life and not to go MY way. Your way is always THE way!
