.. Silent


Good morning, Lord Jesus. l
I'll be silent now, as You speak. l
I'll follow now, as You lead. ... l

Lord I hear You call my name
Lord I hear You are the same
Lord I'm listening
I'm not missing
Any word You have to say

Lord speak to me
Lord reach out to me
Lord I'm listening
I'm not missing
Any word You have to say ... l

"My sheep hear My voice. I know them, l
and they follow Me" (John 10:27). l

Lord Jesus, I do know You; and You
know me. I am one of Your sheep; and
You are my Great Shepherd. l
By the mercy of Your grace, I do hear
Your voice; I do follow You. l
And I want to hear Your voice more
clearly, more specifically in all
the ways You choose to speak to me. l
I want to be listening, never missing
any word You have to say. l
Your words "are spirit and life" l
(John 6:63). l
And I want to hear them, obey them, l
and be changed by them. l
 
As I open the ears of my spirit to You, l
"only speak the word" and I will be
changed (Matthew 8:8). l
You are "the Word made flesh" l
(John 1:14, KJV). l
And You are the Word made fresh every
moment of every day, as You speak Your
words of spirit and life into my spirit
and my life. So what could be more
important than growing in knowing You, l
hearing Your voice, and following You? l
 
It seems I hear You say, "My son, take
hold of My hand with your heart. As you
keep your heart open to Me, I fill your
heart with My desires and lead your steps
in My ways. It is a journey; it is a
process. Your part is to keep your heart
open to Me. My part is to keep changing
your heart, a little more each day." l

Yes, Lord. "You desire truth in the inward
being; therefore teach me wisdom in my
secret heart.... Create in me a clean
heart, O God, and put a new and right
spirit within me" (Psalm 51:5-10). l
As I open my heart and listen for Your voice, l
I take hold of Your hand. And You keep
taking hold of me. "My sheep hear My voice. l
I know them and they follow Me. I give
them eternal life, and they will never
perish. No one will snatch them out of
My hand" (John 10:27-28). Thank You, l
Lord, for Your word made fresh to me and
in me today. In Jesus' name I pray, l
Amen. l

Be encouraged today! l
In the Love of Jesus, l
