I read this today during a time of prayer....

The sheep follow the Good Shepherd because they know his voice." (John 10:4). How do we hear the voice of God? As a hectoring father, a nagging mother, a moralizing preacher, a didactic teacher, a calculating accountant, a roaring sergeant-major?

So do any of these "voices" fit for you? Or do you hear God another way?

This is a question I struggle with. I am not always clear how I hear God, and I am afraid there may be times that I miss the message. I think I hear God most often over the course of a period of time when the message persists and comes at me through different media. I might read a scripture, then have a conversation with my wife, then hear a sermon and it all comes together.
