No More Silent Nights

“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”

(Hebrews 3:15 NIV)

After 400 years of prophetic silence, the Word who was with God, and was God, became flesh and dwelt with the world He had created (John 1:1-2, 14). So imagine Israel’s joy when God finally broke His silence and spoke to His people through His Son, our Emmanuel (Hebrews 1:2)! The Son whose words have the power to heal, comfort and restore us. But sadly, what has always been true of God’s people in the past is still true of His people today – not many choose to listen to His voice. And while we don’t have to wait for hundreds of years to hear His voice as the ancients did, the writer of Hebrews still cautions us, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”

We can’t go without reading the word of God or obeying His commands and still expect to hear from Him. His voice is loud and clear. In Jesus, we know who God is, what He is like and what He expects from each one of us. We don’t have to go through silent nights when we believe in the Word and listen to His words. Can you hear Him calling your name? Listen to His voice!
