Do you have a big decision to make? Are you on the right track in life? Does God have something to say about it all? The goal of this post is to help you hear God for yourself. Jesus died to see us brought back into relationship with Father. Would He have done that to only speak to us when we die and are in heaven? No.
A belief system or theology called “Cessationism” suggests that God stopped speaking to us when the Bible was completed. That is not accurate and in fact clearly error. Our Heavenly Father pursues us and speaks to us constantly. Jesus clearly told us that He was leaving, but sending Holy Spirit to live here with us.
He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
…again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.”
God speaks in different ways to different people. There are many examples of His audible voice or even angelic messengers delivering His Word. He also speaks through dreams, visions, The Bible, and other people to name a few more. He is not limited in how He speaks to us.
Just as we can recognize someone’s voice better the more we hear it, so it is with God. While at first it may take a little more time or confidence, as you continue stepping out in faith and obeying what He guides, it will become just like talking to a friend.
For God may speak in one way, or in another, Yet man does not
perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction. In order to turn man from his deed, And conceal pride from man…
I’ll discuss specific details about how to hear God in the next blog. Until then pray this and see what happens!
Father, I know Your voice and I believe You still speak. I choose to quiet my soul and listen. I trust You to help me hear and I know You want me to hear what You have to say. Open my heart and mind to all of the ways You want to speak to me. I want to have dreams, visions, angelic visitations and read Your Word. I choose to believe that You will speak to me clearly and teach me to recognize the special ways You communicate with me.
