Let God Hear Your Voice
Posted January 20, 2006
On Thursday, January 19th in the evening, I was praying and I heard the Spirit of God saying, "Let me hear thy voice." Those words are taken from the Song of Solomon chapter 2 verse 14. "O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely."
The Song of Solomon describes the relationship of Jesus Christ with the church it also describes the relationship of a husband and his wife. God is saying to the church or his bride, "let me hear your voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely." We see here that God is saying, come boldly to the throne of grace into the very presence of God and of Jesus Christ, seated at his right hand.
God tells us in Psalm 100:1-5, "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. v.1
Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. v.2
Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. v.3
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. v.4
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations." v.5
Christ's love for the church is demonstrated in Psalm 66:16-20, "Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul. v.16
I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue. v.17
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: v.18
I learned years ago not to look on the iniquity of my heart but to give myself to prayer. I want to encourage all of you to do the same thing.
But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. v.19
Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me." v.20
I John 3:20-21 says, "For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. v.20
Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God." v.21
It says in Proverbs 15:8, "The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight."
God delights in our praying. He will not turn away our prayers from him. Praying releases God's mercy upon us.
God bless you,
