VOICE OF GOD.
"See that you do not refuse to hear the voice that speaks. Those who refused to hear the oracle (1) speaking on earth found no escape: still less shall we escape if we refuse to hear the One who speaks from heaven." (Heb 12:25 NEB).
'Yes! blessed are those holy hours in which the soul retires from the world to be alone with God. God's voice, as Himself is everywhere. Within and without, He speaks to our souls, if we hear. Only the din of the world, or the tumult of our own hearts, deafens our inward ear to it. Learn to commune (2) with Him in stillness, and He, whom you have sought in stillness, will be with you when you go abroad.' (E. B. Pusey).
"These are the words of the Lord God the Holy One of Israel: Come back, keep peace, and you will be safe; in stillness and in staying quiet, there lies your strength." (Isaiah 30:15 NEB).
"My own sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me. I give them eternal life and they shall never perish; no one shall snatch them from my care." (John 10:27,28 NEB).
"O people of Zion who dwell in Jerusalem, you shall weep no more. The Lord will show you favour and answer you when He hears your cry for help... He who teaches you shall no longer be hidden out of sight, but with your own eyes you shall see Him always. If you stray from the road to right or left you shall hear with your own ears a voice behind you saying, This is the way; follow it." (From Isaiah 30:19-21 NEB).
