“God does speak – sometimes one way and sometimes another – even though people may not understand it.” Job 33:14, NCV
Do you know how to tune into God’s voice? God speaks through the Bible; His will is found in His Word. It shows you the right steps to take, which is why you need to read God’s Word every day.
God speak through teachers. Have you ever been in a church service and felt like the teacher was delivering a message directly to you? There’s no way the teacher could have known what you needed to hear, but the message was tailor-made for you by God. He uses the teaching of others to meet the needs of people who are listening.
God also speaks through impressions. Two extremes play out regarding impressions from God. The first extreme accounts for the people who don’t believe God gives impressions at all – everything must be logical. The second extreme is about people who hold a mystical belief that every impression is from God. Find a healthy place in the middle and recognize that, for an impression to be from God, it has to match His Word.
God often speaks through circumstances. If you’re going to live a life of significance, God has to make constant course corrections, and one way he does that is through the circumstances He brings into your life.
God does speak, so it’s up to you to develop the ability to tune into His voice. Sometimes He will lead you in a way that you don’t understand. Be patient and listen for His voice. God is faithful, and He will show you the way.
