Knowing Your Voice

So much has happened in a week! I’ve seen an oncologist, surgeon and cardiologist. My heart is fine, thank You, Lord! The cardiologist said the enlarged lymph nodes around the kidney most likely caused my adrenal gland to make my heart race. He actually said it’s a blessing or otherwise the lymphoma would’ve gone undetected. I’m so grateful to You for exposing this. On the 10th I went for pre-op tests because surgery is scheduled for the 15th. Things are happening fast.
I received a call from a prayer-warrior friend who’s been praying for me. She said as she was praying, she felt You telling her that I know and hear Your voice. Lord, how that blessed me! Thank you for those words of comfort and confirmation. She also felt led to give me this scripture, Ezekiel 12:28: “Therefore say to them, “This is what the Sovereign Lords says: None of My words will be delayed any longer; whatsoever I say will be fulfilled, declares the Sovereign Lord.”
Lord, how I thank You for Your faithfulness and I will continue to confess Your Word, which is truth. There aren’t enough words to express the gratitude in my heart that You are with me through all this and have revealed the hidden things.
John 10:3-5: …”He calls His own sheep by name and leads them out.When He has brought out all His own, He goes on ahead of them, and His sheep follow Him because they know His voice.But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.”
John 10:14: “I am the Good Shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know me.”
2 Thessalonians 3:3: But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.
Psalm 145:17-19: The Lord is righteous in all His ways and faithful in all He does. The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cry and saves them.
