When God Speaks, Do We Listen?






God speaks to us all the time. Sometimes he uses thoughts, impressions, scripture, sights, sounds and even dreams. There is no limit to the variety of ways He can communicate with you. Sometimes it’s that still small voice and once in a while it feels like God is shouting from the stands, hammering His point across.

We primarily hear from God by regularly spending time reading His word. God has given us the Bible as a tool to know and understand who He is and what His will is for us. The Bible is God’s message to all of us. Everything we need to know to about how to live the Christian life is already within its covers.  As we spend time meditating on His word, God reveals His truth to us.

God wants us to listen instead of talk when we’re in communication with Him. Sometimes we’re just too busy talking. As my mother told me when I was young, “You gotta put on your listening ears!”

Listen to God’s messages in whatever form they come. If you look around you will see that the world is alive with God’s presence. Sometimes you find God in nature’s beauty, but at times you find it in tragedy. He is there for you ALL the time.

Sometimes God’s message is just what you hoped. Other times, God’s message might not always be what you wanted to hear, but it is His message, all the same. We must remember that God wants HIS best for us, not necessarily our best. We must trust Him in the good times and cling to him through the bad times.

God Keeps His Promises!

God made this promise to His people: “And ye shall seek me, and find me,
when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).

If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, God is with you, beside you, above you, and inside you. God’s presence and watchful care will never leave you. If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, God is right in front of you, inviting you, drawing you, offering you the love, mercy, and grace that He longs to give you.

Note from Gail:

I started this article a few days ago, about how God speaks to us continually and in many different ways. All we need to do is listen. Little did I know that the article was for ME!  I hope you have been able to glean something from it as well.

I hope you enjoyed reading this article.

About Gail Pinder

I was born in New Jersey and raised in a small town in Pennsylvania. I have lived in many places – Texas, Arkansas, Delaware and finally Michigan. Several years ago, I met a wonderful man – a Vietnam Navy vet who shares my love of God and Country! We have been happily married for more than 18 years. I have two children of my own and Emery has two children. We have four wonderful grandchildren. Emery and I both have Multiple Sclerosis. He is now in a powerchair and I am his caregiver. Life is somewhat challenging, but we do the best we can. We tell everyone that “We have MS, but it doesn’t have us!” I have always loved to write and my dream was to becoming a “writer”. PICC gave me a window to my dream and an opportunity to share my thoughts with others. Our faith is strong and I don’t know where we would be without it. We are determined to spread a little sunshine in a darkened world.
