Malachi 3:6 “ I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT.” Yes, God still speaks today. And He speaks to you and me…not just a chosen few…and especially if you are a born again Christian, then the Almighty God speaks to you. That could be exciting or daunting. I choose exciting! Let’s get rid of the “Christianese” and religious talk and take a look at how we can actually HEAR the voice of God. When I was a new Christian, I heard the adults talking about how to hear the LORD and I wanted to know, too. The prevailing teaching was that God didn’t really speak in an audible voice anymore and that you had to listen for that still small voice on the inside. OK, fine. So I strained to hear the still small voice, and was continually challenged, even vexed, with the thought “how do you know if it’s God, myself, or the devil?” I don’t remember ever hearing a clear answer from any preacher I’d ever sat under or read. I wasn’t satisfied with the uncertainty. I kept doing my part and had my own ears and attitude pointed to the LORD, with my heart yearning to HEAR HIS VOICE. In the Bible we read over and over and over…”thus saith the LORD”, “and God said”, “hearken unto the voice of the LORD”, and “Jesus answered”. “Thus saith the LORD” is in the Bible 430 times. Hmmm…so if God is talking, why do the people of God behave as if we have a hearing problem? Really. There is nothing wrong with God’s voice. Don’t take on any condemnation here. We are searching out the truth of God’s Word so that we grow, have understanding, and victory. Amen? Amen! The voice of God is the stronghold of faith.
