So the question is,,, does God speak to us ??? Well, the short answer is,,, YES !!! But there are a couple of prerequisites for us in order to hear what he is saying !!!
First,,, we have to believe in who he is and accept him- After all,,, how can you expect to hear from someone that you don’t believe exists in the first place ??? As it says in the Bible, Romans 10:9, ESV: “because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
What does it mean to be saved ??? That means you have admitted that you are a sinner (not perfect, none of us are), believe in Jesus Christ as the only-begotten son of God, and asked forgiveness for your shortcomings (sins), and have been filled with the Holy Spirit of God (Everlasting Peace and Love) !!!
Okay, so what do you do now – You study/learn about him from his word (Bible) and you begin to talk with him (pray) about all your worries, concerns, and fears !!!
So when do you hear from him and get your prayers and requests answered ??? Always, but you may not know it until you get to know him better and let him deeper into your life !!
I can honestly say, from my experience and reflection on my life, that all of my prayers were answered !!!
Sound a bit pompous ??? Let me clarify that statement,,,, all my prayers were answered,,, but,,, they were not always the answers I wanted,,, but they were always the answers I needed to fulfill my needs !!!
Who else, but your Loving Heavenly Father and Creator of every part of you,,, mind, body, and soul,,, would know exactly what you need even though it may not be what your worldly outlook wants !!!
I can tell you, looking back over all my years,,, every answer was “spot on” and far better than what I could have ever hoped for, even though, at the time, they weren’t what I worldly wanted !!!
So open your heart and invite Jesus in and set back and enjoy all the blessings he will shower you with and the heavenly truth he is going to fill you with !! This Truth will set you free from the weight of the world you are carrying !!!
As the lyrics from the song Amazing Grace declares,,, “I was lost, but now I’m found,,,, I was blind, but now I see”
God Bless and Merry Christmas !!!!
