“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish.” John 10:27-28a NLT
You must call out to Him with your little child self. The ears of your heart must be open and waiting. You must promise yourself that you WILL DO WHAT HE SAYS TO DO. It may take some time and much prayer, but once you think you hear Him, do not convince yourself that you didn’t. Trust it. Go to the scripture and pray for confirmation, but trust it and do not grieve or quench the Spirit by turning away. You will learn to recognize the strong yet gentle voice of the shepherd. His intimate presence will fill you with a sense of overwhelming love and acceptance. It will be so powerful that, at times, you will tremble and tears of gratitude will flow from your eyes.
