Weekday devotionals for Christians

Your Voice

 

Psa 5:1 To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.

Psa 5:2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
Psa 5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
      King David is showing us what he did to get God’s attention.  Yes, David did action, but look at what type of action he did:

1. Give ear to my “words”. 
2. Consider my “meditation”.
3. Hearken unto the “voice of my cry”.
“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning.”  I do not hear much about the subject of voice, but it is very important to us.  The word voice is mentioned  505 times in 456 verses in the Bible.  The first mention of the word voice is found in Genesis 3 after Adam and Eve ate the wrong fruit and hid from God because they heard the sound of His voice walking in the garden.  The last mention of voice in the Bible is Revelation 21:3 and states:
  Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them,  and be their God.
If you think about it, our own voice is very dear to us.  We recognize each other by the sound of it; we can tell emotion in it; we can project it; etc.  Our loved ones voice is a very pleasant thing to us and hearing it can cause us happiness.  I love hearing my daughters voices as they run to greet me when I get home.  I love hearing my wife’s voice as she talks to me.  
     Can you imagine how God feels when He hears your voice praising Him and worshipping Him?  Wow, If it is anything like the joy I get from hearing my daughters voices; then it must be great to Him.  One thing that I have also learned as a parent is that I can tell my child’s cry from another child’s cry.  It is funny to see other parents pause what they are doing when they hear crying, to see if that is their own child’s cry.  When it is my child’s cry, I stop what I am doing and rush over to them to help them.  Can you imagine what God does?  I know if we do that for our own children, how much more does God do that for His children?  When was the last time that He heard your voice cry out to Him?   God wants your voice to cry out to Him.  Will you?  He knows your voice, so what is stopping you?  Bro. CW’s challenge for today:

Who you cry to first in a need is whom you trust the most.  Who will you cry out to?
