My wife and I are were watching our church’s online service and in the opening portion the Pastor, the associate Pastor and Minster of Music were discussing how God speaks to them personally. They then asked the church to write down how we believe God speaks to them and share it.
The message inspired me to write this blog.
For those out there reading this I want you to know God wants to have a personal relationship with you.
He wants to talk to you and He wants us to listen.
God can speak to you in many forms. God knows us best and I believe God will speak to someone in the best way they will hear Him.
I know the Music Minister Willie said he hears God through music.
Me personally I have always been someone who thinks and thinks and thinks. My mind is always on and I can never shut it off. So God speaks to me through my thoughts. Sometimes a little thing here and there other times I get some very deep messages I truly feel are from the Lord.
I realize there is a negative connotation to someone who says, “God told me” or “God spoke to me”. I think a lot of that has to do with people’s own skepticism. The truth is even though we have faith we also struggle with skepticism.
Now I am not saying that you should believe every word someone says or just go along with what someone is saying but we should listen to our brothers and sisters.
You may ask but how do we know if what someone is saying is the truth?
Well since we don’t actually know if God has talked to that person we can’t write them off but there is ways to use discernment. This works both for the listener and the one who believes God is speaking to them.
First you can always ask the Holy Spirit, ask God if He is the one speaking to you or if the person speaking to you is telling the truth. Remember the Holy Spirit dwells within us as Christians.
If you’re still unsure see if what is being said matches with scripture. God is not going to tell anyone something that goes against His Word.
Know scripture and know God.
Know God and know truth.
Have a Blessed Week,
