Today I am recapping some issues relating to my ‘Tween God and Me posts.  My purpose for these posts is to point to Jesus as our Greatest Friend, to God as our Greatest Father, to the Holy Spirit as our Greatest Guide.  In “God Speaks” https://onetahayes.com/2016/05/26/god-speaks/ I point out that God speaks to us by the Holy Bible, by nature, by conscience, by dreams, by circumstances, by one’s spirit, and by words, both audible and inaudible.  This is not a complete list.  God knows each of us and he knows how to communicate in a way each will understand if he/she has accepted the truth that God does, indeed, speak to us.

Jesus said that his sheep know his voice.  I don’t know how long it takes for a sheep to know the shepherd’s voice, but it probably does not take long for those sheep who are walking close to the shepherd.  Those out on the fringes of the herd may have more trouble with the “big bad wolf” who tries to present himself as a friend of the sheep, but he is out to draw the sheep away from the shepherd.

In my posts ‘Tween God and Me I am trying to give concrete examples of these methods by relating incidents in my life.  I am over eighty years old.  I have grown in my ability to recognize my Father’s voice.  I am humbled by thinking about all the times my “God channel” has been clogged up, filled with static, or turned completely off.  I want to tell you, God wants to talk to you.  That will begin by your entering into prayer and reading the Bible and meditating on what he will reveal to you in that way.  Knowing how God’s written word sounds will help to know how his spoken word sounds.

So far I have given examples of his communicating with me in dreams, circumstances, my spirit, vision, and words. If you would like a review, you can search tags for ‘Tween God and Me.  Next I plan to tell you of a time when I needed him to tell me more than once; at that time he confirmed what I was to do in five different ways.  Sometimes I might seem a bit hard to convince!


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Because of my own journey and longer life experiences I confirm everything you have said above. We need to know absolutely WHO our Shepherd is. Know the written WORD and know absolutely He will never speak or direct ‘outside’ this Word. (ie not through a deceptive angel etc ie current world problems or in 1King 13 1-24 where a young man was led astray by an older man who claimed his information came from an ‘angel’. He lied! Great posts I’m glad you are writing them.!
