Have you ever visited with an extended family where laughing children’s play was interrupted by a sharp cry of pain? That child’s voice was recognized by the parent who responded immediately to the situation.
Our relationship with God has to be this close. God knows your voice when in distress or when you offer prayers in good times.
To him the doorkeeper opens,
and the sheep hear his voice,
and he calls his own sheep by name
and leads them out.
John 10:3 New American Standard Bible
Prayer: Everlasting God of heaven and earth, You will hear me when I call because I am one of Your sheep. You know my name. Amen.
