“My Sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:” John 10:27
The way of the Lord is not difficult and also His instructions are not demanding. When you declare you allegiance to God, then you have to focus on building your relationship with Him.
This, you have to do in every aspect of your life, in your speech, in your attitude, your conducts as well as you relationship with people.
Are you God’s child? Then you have to obey His voice. You have to follow Him with your entire heart, and not halfway through. God is not happy when you proclaim you are His but your personal life is not straightforward.
Believe me, my dear brethren, you will experience lots and lots of temptations but you have to fully come to the understanding that your life is no longer the way it used to be and that now, you are for God, so you must strive, even harder, to live for Him.
If you are for God, then you will hear His voice, obey His instructions, live according to His will and be in profound relationship with Him. It is not just by word of mouth but equally by what you do, how you live and what direction is your life at the moment.
To follow God with your whole heart and without any biases has its own best result. I have never seen anyone who faithfully follow God and be let just like that. God lifts up His own people. He ensures all go well with them. He is forever with them in times of trials, problems and whatever. In fact, God shares His Sheep’s tears, happiness, pain, emotions, passions, and love.
He is not a God that will fail to hear His own Sheep. He is neither deaf nor dumb. His ears are over the righteous to deliver them from every calamity and chaos of life.
The question you need to ask yourself is; are you God’s Sheep?
