Jesus Calling Oct 30th
God is always with us. Always. I know I say that a lot, but so many people don’t even have a clue. They are unaware of His Presence’s existence.
He promises to always be with you. People don’t know this or feel Him or hear Him because their minds are so clogged up and busy. They are so filled with everything going on around them that it is impossible for them to hear Him. They are unfocused. We are His children and His sheep, we should know what His voice sounds like.
To start out you need to be in a quiet place. So you can hear His voice and grasp it. Know what it sounds like. Then you will be more experienced in hearing Him in the real world with everything going on around you. You will be able to hear Him in all circumstances if you just bring the stillness with you.
Sing to the Lord! Praise the Lord! For though I was poor and needy, he rescued me from my oppressors.
I am the Good Shepherd. I know my own sheep and my own sheep know me. In the same way, the Father knows me and I know the Father. I put the sheep before myself, sacrificing myself if necessary. You need to know that I have other sheep in addition to those in this pen. I need to gather and bring them, too. They’ll also recognize my voice. Then it will be one flock, one Shepherd. This is why the Father loves me: because I freely lay down my life. And so I am free to take it up again. No one takes it from me. I lay it down of my own free will. I have the right to lay it down; I also have the right to take it up again. I received this authority personally from my Father.”
