Luke 1:80
"And the child (John) grew and became strong in spirit; and he lived in the desert until he appeared publicly to Israel." NIV
"And the child (John) grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel." KJV

Our God has always given us His voice to let us know His plan for us. Just before the open ministry of our Lord Jesus, God gave us His voice through John the Baptist. John grew up, staying in the desert to prepare for his ministry. When God set the time, John attracted crowds with his message, because the Spirit of God was in him. When Jesus Christ began His ministry after being baptized by John, then John willingly and obediently decreased, so the the Saviour of the world, Jesus Christ could increase. Jesus was the voice that told us the way to eternal life. So, now, by the Holy Spirit, we lift our voice in praise and witness to the Lord Jesus Christ. Then, we decrease so that the Holy Spirit can be the voice to convict others of sin and do the work that brings souls to Christ.

Heavenly Father, what a wonderful God You are, that You would provide Your voice for us to know the Way to go in this world. Thank You for the greatest Voice of all, our Lord Jesus. Through the ages You have provided Your voice. Help us to hear and listen so that we will walk in the Way You designed us to walk. In the name of our Lord Jesus we pray, Amen.
