I often wondered ‘how’ people hear the Voice of God. I was a new born-again believer then and my friends told me that they saw Bibles verses like the ones we see in the running/ moving LED display boards. Some said they heard the ‘Voice’ of God.
Some through dreams and so on…
I hadn’t yet heard the voice of God. I was a little disappointed, sometimes questioning myself, “what do I need to do to hear the Voice of God?” or “what did I do that I didn’t hear from God?”. Days passed by, even months and years…and then one day I was asked to travel abroad for work. In a week’s time I was bored, no real friends to connect with, so I started reading the Bible! I had a good time of singing in my quiet room followed by Bible reading. One of these days, I had a few questions and as I continued reading the Bible…lo and behold…my answers were right there in the Scriptures! That was my first encounter and I remember it so vividly.
Then as I progressed, when I was down or anxious I had the Word of God comforting me with the Scriptures. Then I saw dreams, sometimes people warning me of things.
The Holy Spirit was and is my comfort and Counselor, just as God’s Word promises.
This made me realize one thing for sure, that God is constantly communicating with us, but we need to be ready to hear his Voice. It may not be a loud Voice. The fundamental way in which HE communicates is through HIS WORD and HIS WORD IS LIFE!
John 14:26 (KJV) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
