God Is Speaking To You

Psalm 85


Our concept of God determines how we relate to Him. Those who see Him as distant and impersonal may be surprised to know He "speaks" personally to everyone - even to those who deny His existence. Since He wants us to know Him and have a personal relationship with Him, He continually seeks to communicate with us. But without hearing His voice audibly, many people are unaware of Him. Even Christians can develop insensitive spiritual ears.

For those who are willing to hear, God's voice can be discerned through a variety of sources. The most obvious one is the Bible, but He can also call to us through the spoken or written words of other believers. He even speaks through circumstances and the wonders of His creation. I think we would all be amazed if we knew how many different ways our loving heavenly Father tries to get our attention.

He calls with a quiet voice that speaks into our hearts and minds. Although His words can be directed to a crowd, He has a specific, individualized message for each person. That's why two people can hear the same sermon or read the same verses yet come away with two different applications of the message. God doesn't dish out generalities; He communicates specific ideas meant just for you.

Busyness is a big hindrances to receptivity. When our lives are filled with the clamor of this world, God's quiet voice can't be heard. Set aside time today to listen for His call, consider what He's saying through your circumstances, and respond in gratitude because He delights to speak with you.

Current Sermon Series:

      In every man's life, there is a cause worth fighting for and a victory worth claiming. What is yours? Discover how to not only prepare for the battles ahead, but more importantly, how to emerge victoriously. It's time to stop playing the role of the nice guy and instead live as The Warrior.
      We will look into: The Warrior's Cause, The Hessitant Warrior, The Wounded Warrior, The Distracted Warrior, and The Passionate Warrior.

Last Week: We looked into the Hesitant Warrior. Every warrior fears failure, and because of this, many times it causes us to be hesitant. When a warrior's internal fear of failure exceeds his faith in God, that's when he becomes hesitant, and the hesitant warrior is always vulnerable.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our website, just under the calendar, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week: We will continue looking at The Warrior by looking into The Wounded Warrior.
