God Speaks to You

“If God needs you, He will call you.” (1)

Most Christians complain that God has never spoken to them.  This is not true.  God has spoken to you. Furthermore, He speaks to you frequently.

Most Christians rarely listen for God thus, they have never heard Him speaking to them.

Most Christians only listen for God, when they need or want something from Him.

God speaks to you every time you read the Bible.  He speaks to you through His Word.  If you read the Bible daily, you will hear God speaking to you daily.

God frequently speaks to you through the work of the Holy Spirit. In John 16:13, Jesus taught:

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears (from the Father) he will speak to you.”

When the Spirit speaks you can count on two things:

  1. The Spirit’s guidance will never contradict what God has spoken in the Bible
  2. The Spirit will tell another Christian, who listens for God, what He has told you.

I have been amazed the number of times when God has spoken to me, directly through scripture and through the Holy Spirit, that another God listener will tell me what God has told me.  Their testimony confirms what God has spoken to me through His Word and the work of the Holy Spirit.

To hear God calling me, I need to:

  • Listen for Him;
  • Read His Word daily;
  • Surround myself with other Christians who listen for Him and read His Word daily.

Ours is not a silent God.  He speaks to us regularly.  Unfortunately, we frequently do not hear Him because our ears are filled with the noise of the world.

Be still and know that I am God”

Psalm 46:10
