John 10:3-5 NIV

“The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. 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.” 

Proverbs 3:6 The Message

Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.
