It's an interesting topic, hearing God speak. A good point Priscilla brought up is that some people don't expect God to speak, so they never think to listen for him. Even if God is yelling at you, you won't realize it's him unless you're trying to listen for him.
|Can you hear me now?|
Tonight I had one of those prayers where I really just wanted to talk at God. I wasn't in the mood to listen, and I told him as much. I just wanted to spill my guts and share my fears and anxiety with him. Heck, I don't want them. He can have them. I wanted the conversation to be purely one-sided. Also, I was driving, so it's much easier to talk than to listen when I'm trying to pay attention to the road.
This is why I don't talk on my cell phone while driving. Ever. But I digress.
There are times I expect God to speak and he doesn't. There are times I don't expect him to and he does. And there are times I don't want him to speak, so I probably wouldn't be able to hear him even if he tried. It's amazing how much of our interaction with God depends on our attitude toward him.
So I'd like you to answer the following questions for me:
- Do you expect God to speak to you? When? How?
- Has God spoken to you in any capacity?
- How did you know it was God?
