Are you constantly standing in a room where you are voiceless? Are your lips moving, but no one seems to hear you? Are you continually standing in the shadows of all the noise around you? Do you feel like you are always listening to others, yet no one listens to you or wants to hear what you have to say? Are you in a voiceless marriage? How about a voiceless friendship? Are your children or family members leaving you voiceless?
Many people are voiceless in their job, church, and organizations as well. Isn't it frustrating to constantly listen to others speak and listen to everything they want to say, yet your words fall on deaf ears? After eagerly waiting on your turn to speak, are you cut off as soon as you begin to talk?
Well, is God voiceless in your life? Is He constantly trying to tell you something, but you complain about what is wrong in your life and not allowing Him to speak? Or are you continuing praying for one thing after the next and often repeating the identical petitions you said in the last prayer without listening to His answers on your first prayer? Are you so distracted by what is going on that you do not hear Him calling you? Is God frustrated that He is the one voiceless with you?
If you are constantly talking, then you can not hear others let alone God. How many blessings have you missed because you were so busy running your mouth? If you are voiceless in any situation, when are you going to speak up? When are you going to realize what you have to say has value and is essential. What if God walked away because He was tired of waiting on you to listen to Him?
Father God, I desire to hear Your voice. I value what You have to say. I desire to listen to your instructions. When I hear Your voice, it is the sweetest sound to my soul. Thank You, Father, for taking the time to speak to me, Lord. In Jesus' name, Amen.
"Allowing someone to remain voiceless is showing a lack of respect or value for their content." - Alston Shropshire
