DAY 25 God does speak

Job 33:14 says, “God does speak — sometimes one way and sometimes another — even though people may not understand it” (NCV).

“God does speak — sometimes one way and sometimes another — even though people may not understand it”
A lot of us think we’re too busy to listen for God’s response. But we have to take the time to tune in and listen because God is speaking.

The question is, “How do I understand it? How do I tune in so that I can hear God’s voice?”
Here are four of the channels that God uses:

1. God speaks to us through the Bible.
It’s your guidebook for life. It shows you the right step to take. That is why you need to read God’s Word every day. If you’re not having a daily quiet time and reading the Bible, God is getting a busy signal when he wants to speak to you. You have to keep a constant connection, because God’s will is found in God’s Word.

2. God speaks to us through Preachers.
Have you ever been in a church service and felt like the teacher was delivering a direct message from God to you? There’s no way I or any other teacher could figure out exactly what to say to meet every need. But God knows. So before every service, I pray, “God, you know the people and the needs out there. Give me the right things to say.” Somehow, in the way only he can, God uses my teaching and the teaching of other pastors to meet the needs of people who are listening.

3. God speaks to us through dreams and visions.
God speaks to us through the dreams of the night, and we can see some of the examples in the scripture when Jesus was born, it was through the dream that Jesus warn the three wise men not to return back to Harold and also warn Joseph of the coming danger to run away to Egypt to safe the Child Jesus.

4. God speaks to us through our chastisement.
Job 33:19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:
In pains and suffering of sickness or lost of things, sometimes God is looking for you to turn away from your evil deeds but when you have never obeyed God, you cannot understand what God is saying. God has to make constant course corrections, and one way he does that is through the circumstances that come into your life.

When you start to listen to God through bible, preachers,chastisement, dreams & Vision, or the Bible, sometimes he’s going to lead you in ways that you don’t understand.
Hang in there! Following God is not always easy, but it will reap more blessing in your life than you can imagine.
