Does God really speak today? Will He speak personally to me? If I listen, will He speak in such a manner that even I can understand? Thank God, the answer is yes! And believe it or not, God Himself wants all of us to hear what He is saying-more than any of us do!
Fellowship is not a one-way road. It takes at least two, with both parties-in one another's presence-sharing attentively in some kind of communion. Our relationship with our heavenly Papa was never meant to be a long-distance telephone conversation.
"Available" is God's middle name. He is just aching to spend time alone with each of us. He yearns to hear from us. He wants us to know how attentive He is.
As I travel in my ministry, I am often away from home for days at a time. On top of that my 4 kids live in 4 different states! So I have to diligently attempt to keep in touch with what is happening at home and in my kids lives. Using today's wonderful technology-texts, emails, phone calls and such-we all attempt to be in touch. But cell phone calls and text messages do not compare or replace being with them in person! Sometimes I just need a hug! True love requires being together. The greatest key to hearing God's voice is cultivating a love-based relationship.
As for me, I want to hear His voice and intimately know Him, not just on a casual basis, but also on a daily, vibrant one. Join me and thousands of others who are learning to hear the Master's beckoning voice by leaning our ear toward Him. Go on a journey of beginning to hear (and love hearing) God's voice.
