Do you hear voices?  On a daily basis voices tell us how to live, whether we recognize it or not.  Some tell us to buy things like cars or clothes, some tell us how to pray or what to read, and still others tell us how to handle our relationships with friends or family members.   Voices come from many places; friends, family members, pastors, the media, books and tapes.  I find even my own voice can determine the direction of others (scary). 

But this is not God's plan.  God desires that we strive to hear His voice, and His alone.  Can God speak through others?  Yes.  But this does not discount our need to listen for Him.  His voice should be the one we seek.  God and a relationship with Him can not and will not be replaced by others, it can only be enhanced by them.

John 10:27, "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;"
