Morning Thought: Listen for the Bridegroom’s voice. If you read the Scriptures without hearing his voice, you’ve missed the point. If you pray without waiting for the King to speak, you’ve skipped the pulsating heart of prayer. The great longing of the believer’s life is to hear the Bridegroom’s voice. His voice always draws you closer to him. Nothing will make you more happy. John the Baptist had this one desire and it was the very source of his joy. “He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. So this joy of mine has been made full” (John 3:29, NASB).
