TEXT: Hebrews 3:7-8 (NIV)
So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the wilderness,
One of the worst things that can happen is to be so consumed with pain and worry, or tribulation and disappointment to the extent you lose belief and the ability to reason objectively. The Holy Spirit is designed to speak to our hearts in moments where we need direction, comfort or encouragement. In the thick of the moment he asks that we find wisdom to listen and also allow our hearts to find understanding, to trust his word. The voice of the Lord holds the creative power of God. When he speaks, it happens. Guard your ears, hear his voice, receive the good news.
Help us O Lord to learn to subject our hearts to your word and hearken more to your voice. In Jesus, name I pray.
