“…for He is our God.  We are the people he watches over, the sheep under his care.  Oh, that you would listen to his voice today!” (Psalm 95:7) In the bible, we are often referred to as sheep. For good reason! Sheep are limited in many ways. And when compared to God–we, humans–are too. And God’s OK with that. He doesn’t want know-it-alls who don’t need Him. He’s looking for sheep who want to join Him. In this verse we learn the Shepherd speaks to His sheep. His voice speaks with conviction when we do something wrong. His voice speaks with wisdom when we don’t know what to do. His voice speaks with comfort when it hurts so bad.  He uses His voice to whisper to our soul. God never stops “voicing,” it’s just that we sometimes stop listening.  Man, who would want to miss the voice of God? When we can admit we’re dumb sheep in need of a Shepherd is when we’re really…at our smartest.
