Revelation 2:7 - “Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says…”
We live in a very loud culture. The sound of our day is filled with the voices of media, news, politics, music, movies, sports, social media, friends, teachers, spouses, and much more. We hear it all, but have we heard the voice of God? God doesn’t have a speaking problem. We have a listening problem. He is speaking and it’s critical to hear what He is saying.
God speaks in many different ways:
- He speaks to us through the Bible
- He speaks to us through the experiences of life. Sometimes we learn the most about God from the things that happen to us. Often the circumstances of our lives are designed to wake us up…and to take us deeper.
- He speaks to us through His Spirit. He might use the teachings of a pastor, a writer, a singer, or he might whisper gently to your mind in an unmistakable and biblically consistent voice.
Sometimes we don’t hear because we are preoccupied and distracted. We are so busy with life that we spend most of our time on the run. We have obligations and commitments, responsibilities, and appointments.
Here’s a great question: Is God’s voice the loudest voice in your life?
Dallas Willard - “If God doesn’t speak today then the greatest disservice we could do to people is to tell them they can have a personal relationship with God.”
Hearing the voice of God requires…
If we aren’t intentional about hearing God’s voice, it probably won’t happen. We need to elevate the priority of listening to God. We want to hear what he has for us to do. We want to know what it is that he desires for our lives.
