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!
