Does God Speak

God is really teaching me some stuff lately…and a lot of what He has been teaching me has to do with listening to His voice.

I often see people stare at me in confussion when I mention hearing the voice of God.

Jesus said in John 10:27 that His sheep KNOW His voice…so, if you are a Christian then hearing the voice of God should not be an abnormal thing…it should be a part of our daily lives.



  Here are some proven methods to help you listen to God.

The Bible records God speaking audibly to people many times (Exodus 3:14; Joshua 1:1; Judges 6:18; 1 Samuel 3:11; 2 Samuel 2:1; Job 40:1; Isaiah 7:3; Jeremiah 1:7; Acts 8:26; 9:15 – this is just a small sampling).

 There is no Biblical reason why God could not or would not speak to a person audibly today.

 With the hundreds of times the Bible records God speaking, we have to remember that they occur over the course of 4000 years of human history.

God speaking audibly is the exception, not the rule.

 Even in the Biblical recorded instances of God speaking, it is not always clear whether it was an audible voice, an inner voice, or a mental impression.

Evangelical Protestant faith has always affirmed, as a central tenet of its understanding of divine revelation, that the Word of God must have supreme authority in religion. Evangelicalism has historically held this view in close conjunction with the work of the Holy Spirit. The truth can be stated this way:
The living and true God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is supreme head of a living church, is not mute. He speaks — and He speaks clearly — by His Spirit and through His written word, the Bible.’
Does God still speak to us today?
Let me tell you a little story, and you be the judge.
