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.

1. Neglect. Sometimes we are so busy walking through life that we forget to look at God's compass to make sure we're headed in the right direction.

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.
