Life is full of challenging decisions. Some have fewer consequences than others but even the small ones can end up having big impact. So how can you be confident you’re taking the right action? You’ll be glad to know that God wants you to speak to him about everything in your life. He wants to speak to you too. If you are not hearing from God on a regular basis then what I can tell you is that the problem is not with God. God wants to speak to you more than you want to speak to him. He wants to listen to you more than you want to listen to him. In other words, he really cares about you. Remember, God knows the number of hairs on your head! (He also knows your natural color too :)
So exactly how does God speak to us? He uses four primary agents:
2. His Word
3. His people
4. His Spirit
Jesus said this: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27
Listening to God’s voice enables you to say, “I’m following him!” When you say, “Lord speak to me,” you can have full assurance that it’s his voice you’re hearing. This Sunday we’ll look at a couple of real life examples of how God guides and provides. When God’s voice speaks into your life ordinary things become extraordinary!
