Voice from Heaven

February 27th of this year (2009), my life was truly touched by my Father. I’m 17 and was raised Christian but never took it too seriously. At one point I stopped going to church and praying all together because I questioned the entire belief. Eventually I realized if I wanted to know if it was really true then it was stupid to just run away, so I started reading my bible for about 3 to 4 hours a day. I came to a place in Romans where it talks about God's divine sovereignty and how he'll harden the hearts of who he chooses... and it terrified me. I began praying and crying for about a half hour begging God to not harden my heart because of my doubt. I tried to comfort myself by imagining a vision of bright light or something but then realized that it was just me trying to create that.

Suddenly my whole head was still and I felt a voice say clear as day “The devil will try to turn you away from me. Be strong, holdfast, and stand up for my name. I am with you.” I was in shock. I felt safe and knew my Father would not let me turn from him. But then I became very worried about everyone else. I walked back to my bible, opened it up, and the very first thing I saw was John 14: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me. There are many rooms in my Father's house; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.”

Jesus Christ, the Lord of heaven and earth, spoke to me and my life is forever changed.


HEAR GOD’S VOICE

 
A young man approached the foreman of a logging crew and asked for a job.

“That depends,” replied the foreman. “Let’s see you fell this tree.” The young man stepped forward and skillfully felled a great tree. Impressed, the foreman exclaimed, “You can start Monday.”

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday rolled by. Thursday afternoon the foreman approached the young man and said, “You can pick up your paycheck on the way out today.”

Startled, the young man replied, “I thought you paid on Friday.”

“Normally we do,” said the foreman. “But we’re letting you go today because you’ve fallen behind. Our daily felling charts show that you’ve dropped from first place on Monday to last place today.”

“But I’m a hard worker,” the young man objected. “I arrive first, leave last and even have worked through my coffee breaks!”

The foreman, sensing the young man’s integrity, thought for a minute and then asked, “Have you been sharpening your axe?”

The young man replied, “No Sir, I’ve been working too hard to take time for that!”

Our lives are like that. We sometimes get so busy that we don’t take time to “sharpen the axe”

In today’s world, it seems that everyone is busier than ever but less happy than ever. Why is that? Could it be that we have forgotten how to stay sharp?

There’s nothing wrong with activity and hard work. But God doesn’t want us to get so busy that we neglect the truly important things in life, like taking time to pray, to read and study scripture or to listen to “the still small voice of God.”

We all need time to relax, to think and meditate, to learn and grow. If we don’t take time to sharpen the axe, we will become dull and lose our effectiveness. Take time today to sharpen your axe!

Pass this on to your family and friends…

“God Will Make A Way”
Lyrics:-

God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see,
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide,
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way
 
Oh God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see,
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide,
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way
 
By a roadway in the wilderness You lead me
Rivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade,
But His word will still remain
And He will do something new today
 
Oh God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see,
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide,
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way.
 
By a roadway in the wilderness You lead me
Rivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade,
But His word will still remain
And He will do something new today
 
Oh God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see,
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide,
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way.
 
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way….
He will make a way
.
