I was thinking about the many ways God Speaks to us, and my fear of ” what if I Miss it”. So I began delving into the oh so many ways he can speak to us. So I came up with
- Through His Word.
- Through pictures
- Through other people
- And through our thoughts
Then, I looked further. According to Dr. Charles Stanley, God spoke to his people differently during Old Testament times, such as:
- Direct Revelation ( audible voice)
- Written word
- Angel’s ( Messengers from God)
Then Jesus Christ ( Jesus is the word of God made flesh)[ John 1:14]. And through the Holy Spirit.
Then if we aren’t listening to Him. He has other ways to get our attention. Such as, but not limited to:
- A restlessness that prompts us to seek Him out
- Both Good & Bad circumstances
- And sometimes, flat out saying NO, to keep us from straying off course ( Dr. Charles Stanley: Listening to God).
God wants to have a loving relationship with us. He will guide us every day saying NO to things that would bring us harm, or fall into evil or temptation. He will say YES to the things that will bring us blessings, obeying, and living accordingly.
In the same way the spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. ~~Romans 8:28 NIV.~~
