When the Lord speaks for you to hear;
The message laid on your heart is very clear.
He spoke to Moses from a bush with flames burning.
He spoke to free the Jews and all those yearning.
He spoke to Saul through a brilliant light.
He chastised him and displayed His might.
He spoke to Adam and cast them out of paradise.
The devil deceived Eve and Adam was enticed.
He spoke to Cain asking why does your brother’s blood cry out to me?
Then He sent him out among the heathen forcing him to flee.
He spoke to Noah and saved his family from the rising tides.
He sent a rainbow for a promise that his spirit abides.
He spoke to Lot and gave them safe passage if they would obey.
Lot’s wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt that day.
He spoke to Abraham giving his descendants the Promised Land.
And promised that blessing for his people will forever stand.
He spoke to Mary having a heavenly angel appear.
He told her of the baby Jesus and to have no fear.
He spoke to the multitudes saying this is my Son.
Jesus’ sacrifice was for all of us and cried out “It is done.”
When the Lord ascended the Holy Spirit took his place.
Now the Father no longer speaks to us face to face.
The Holy Spirit speaks to you through faith and prayer.
When you listen to your heart the answers will be there.
When the Lord speaks to you He has a purpose in mind.
And it is for a reason that will benefit all of mankind.
