The Lord doesn't always speak in an audible voice, but often in nudges, moving the heart.
"30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
31 He that cometh from above is above all:
he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth:
he that cometh from heaven is above all.
32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth;
and no man receiveth his testimony.
33 He that hath received his testimony
hath set to his seal that God is true.
34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God:
for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
35 The Father loveth the Son,
and hath given all things into his hand.
36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:
and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;
but the wrath of God abideth on him."
(John 3:30-36, KJV)
"The Greatest One deserves to be, yet greater in all things,
but I deserve in all things to become each day much less.
The One, Who comes from Heaven is why Creation ever sings.
The one, who is of Earth is earthly and can never bless.
"From Heaven Christ is over all
by ear and eye He testifies,
yet none receives the Word he says.
By that each heart of man, it lies.
"This one, receiving ev'ry Word,
that's coming from God's Mouth, which speaks,
hath sealed this very Truth preferred,
Salvation comes to those He seeks.
(John 6:37, KJV)
"For Christ was sent from God Above,
and Christ did speak God's Word Alone.
The Holy Spirit came in love,
o'erflowing Him, Who would Atone.
"The Father loveth His Own Son,
the Only Son He's ever known.
He giveth all things, be and done,
into the hands made for the Throne.
"Now, he believing on the Son
hath everlasting life in heart,
but he believing not this One
shall never see life from the start.
For disbelieving's always done.
Right there God's wrath, He doth impart."
O, Soul, whose childhood heard The Word,
whose parents took thee to God's House.
Reception makes God's Truth be heard.
Conviction we must never douse.
Today's the day God calls thee come.
Be saved from Sin, each part and sum.
Just look to Jesus. He will save
your heart, and make a door your grave.
"(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted,
and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee:
behold, now is the accepted time;
behold, now is the day of salvation.)"
(II Corinthians 6:2, KJV)
"For God says,
“At just the right time, I heard you.
On the day of salvation, I helped you.”
Indeed, the “right time” is now.
Today is the day of salvation."
(II Corinthians 6:2, NLT)
