When Does God Speak to People?
Start with the premise that God does want to speak to people…what a thought! Think of how busy your life is, multiply that by over 7 billion people, and then imagine also holding every molecule and atom in place. Realizing that God, who holds creation together, really cares about the details of our existence should blow us away! It gets better…God keeps track of the number of hairs on our heads – even though we all lose nearly sixty each day. The Psalmist David went as far as to say that God’s thoughts of us number more than the number of grains of sand on the seashore – pretty much all the time. He actually thinks of us all of the time!
Now comes our turn…how often do we think of God? Better yet, how often do we speak to Him (when we are NOT in crisis or want)? Take that one step further; when was the last time God spoke to you personally? Not just through His word, but really got to your heart and changed the way you were thinking about something?
