God Will Talk To You

Some say only a crazy person would claim they hear from God. I think it is crazy NOT to learn to recognize God’s voice. Give this bright “little” song a sing-along listen, then come back and we’ll talk about hearing from Him.

Who gets to say?

Genesis says God and Adam talked to each other. The Bible says God talked with others, too — Cain, Noah, Abraham, Jacob and Moses to name just a few. We don’t read that Adam or Cain or Noah or Abraham or Jacob or Moses were hallucinating or just imagining they heard voices. A real and thoughtful talk happened between God and each of them.

Awhile ago I set up a Google Gmail account. Google asked how I wanted them to contact me — text or email. I thought of saying, “Neither way! I INSIST you come here and talk to me directly, face to face.”

But, hey! Good luck with THAT, right?

Should you and I insist that God do what Google would not? To speak to us in an audible voice — or not speak at all? If we don’t experience God through audible conversations, does that mean God is not talking to us? Let’s see what God has to say about that.

Beyond text or email

Where and how does God make Himself known? Here is an incomplete list of places He has given us to begin looking:

LOOK UP: Psalm 19 says the heavens proclaim the glory of God and the skies display his craftsmanship.

LOOK AROUND: Romans 1 says the creation demonstrates God’s power and authority

LOOK IN CHURCH: Isaiah 2 says people can go to the house of God to be taught God’s Word, and learn His ways and learn how to walk in His paths

LOOK IN THE BIBLE: His word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Jesus Christ is called “the Word made flesh”. He makes God known to mankind. Read about him in the Bible.

Eyes that cannot see, ears that cannot hear

Notice something about that list — every thing there can be perceived through our five senses — the heavens and skies, creation, churches, the Bible, and what it says about Jesus Christ. So, why don’t people see God? Why don’t they hear Him? 1 Corinthians 2 helps us begin to understand WHY God remains hidden — silent — to some people.

“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

Who cannot know or receive the things of God? The “natural man” cannot. The Gospel of John says God is spirit — a supernatural being. We humans are not born as supernatural beings. We are simply “natural”.

That is awful! Could anything possibly be worse than being unable to know or receive the things of God? Well, not being able to know or receive the things of God AND thinking the things of God are FOOLISH — now THAT is worse. These are people who think a person who hears from God must be crazy. The problem is they are “natural”. They can’t see or hear the things of the spirit. This is the condition of every person born into this world.

But we find good news in another verse from 1 Corinthians 2: “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”

If a person wants to be able to see God when they look for Him, and hear God when He speaks, this verse shows the way: receive the spirit which is of God. Romans 10 puts it in these words: accept Jesus Christ as Lord and believe God raised him from the dead. Romans 10 goes on to say the person who does this will not be disappointed in his expectation.

Let’s not be crazy! Let’s seek God on His terms. You will not be disappointed! God WILL talk to you.

God bless you lots!
