Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Prayer – John 10:27-28 – Listen To My Voice – Growing As Disciples

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. John 10:27-28 (NIV)

My Voice 

How will I be able to follow you? How will I know where to go? How will know what to do? How will I know that I am on the right track? How will I know that I have not gone off course? Those are good questions. I am your Good Shepherd. You are one of my sheep. You are prone to wander. You are likely to go your own way. You will find it easy to lose your way. On your own you are like to take missteps. On your own you will surely go where you should not go. On your own you will likely do what you should not do. So, I will say it to you again, you have asked good questions. Do you have an answer for me? Yes, I do have an answer for you. I’m listening. You have my full attention. I will not miss a word that you have to say to me. I will listen attentively to your voice.

You have already answered all your own questions. How is that possible? What did you just tell me that you would do? I said that I would listen attentively to your voice. I said that you would have my full attention. I said that I would not miss a word that you have to say to me. That’s right. That is exactly what you said to me. That is how you will be able to follow me. That is how you will know where to go and what to do. That is what will keep you on track and prevent you from going off course. You will know and listen to my voice. You will hear my whispers. You will receive my guidance and follow my instructions. Your heart and mind and life will be focused on me. You will give me your full attention. You will seek me with all your heart and mind and soul and strength. I will guard you. I will guide you. I will direct you. I will protect you. My hand will be on you. My voice will lead you to where I want you to go. My voice will give you what I want you to do. You will be able to boldly go and do all that I ask of you because you will have listened to my voice. That is exactly what I will do. That will be very good. 

Lord, thank you that you are my Good Shepherd. I am one of your sheep. You know me. Help me to know you. Speak to me so I can hear you. I will listen attentively to your voice as you lead me through life all the twists and turns and ups and downs of life. Amen

Hear My Voice

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Discipleship - John 10:27 - Hear My Voice - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Discipleship – John 10:27 – Hear My Voice – Growing As Disciples

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27 (ESV)

Listen Carefully

Do you want to be able to hear my voice? Will you listen carefully to everything I want to say to you? Yes, I want to be able to hear your voice. Yes, I will listen carefully to everything you want to say to me. That’s good. Do you have any concerns? Are any questions coming to your mind? You know me. I have a ton of questions. Go ahead and ask me what is on your heart and mind. I have a hard time hearing you. It is not easy for me to recognize your voice. How can I learn to hear your more clearly? How can I be sure to recognize your voice? You have asked very good questions. Why do you think it is hard to recognize and hear my voice? I live in a noisy world that is filled with different voices that are all shouting for my attention. It seems like my life is under constant bombardment by messages from the world. Do you know why it seems that way to you? Not really. It seems that way because your life really is under bombardment by many messages from the world. I thought so. I have learned one thing for certain. What’s that? You will never shout for my attention. Your voice does not scream loudly in my ear. No, it does not. Why don’t I scream for your attention? Why don’t I force you to listen to me? You gave me a free will. You want me to willingly come to you. You want me to come to sit quietly in your presence so I can hear what you want to say to me. You want me to make a choice to carefully listen to you. Yes, I do. It would do no good for you to scream for my attention if I was unwilling to listen to you. No, it would not. 

But, I do want to listen to you. I do want to hear everything you want to say to me. That’s good. What will you do so that you can hear from me? I will withdraw from the noise of the world. I will separate myself from all the voices that are screaming for my attention. Every day, I will set apart a time and a place to meet with you. I will quiet myself before you. I will meet with you in your word. I will listen. I will hear. I will put into practice whatever you teach me. I will go where you guide me. I will do what you ask of me. I will follow you. What do you think will happen to you as you meet with me in my word? I will learn to hear you more clearly. I will recognize your voice more surely. Yes, you will. Here I am right now, I’m listening to you. That is very good.

Lord, it is the priority of my life to recognize and hear your voice. I will listen carefully to everything you want to say to me. I will hear your words and put them into practice. I will go where you guide me and do what you ask of me. Guide my life by your word. Amen
