How does God speak to you?

The voice of God. Audibly hearing his voice. Isn’t that what we seek when we pray?We ask for something and we think, “wouldn’t it be nice if God just said, ‘Sure, I can get that for you,’ or ‘I’m make it happen right away.”But he doesn’t. That’s not how God works, and if I’m honest, sometimes that frustrates me. How about you?But wait. I didn’t say God didn’t have a voice. He does. The Bible says he does, and people all over the earth have heard his calling. But it’s not the kind of voice we expect from the King of Glory.It’s not a powerful voice or thunder. The Bible calls it a whisper, or a “still small voice.”Photo by Evgeny Smirnov on Unsplash
