Do you ever hear people say that God told them to do a certain thing? God does speak to His people. He speaks through His word, the Bible. He speaks by way of the Holy Spirit. What does that sound like? It doesn’t sound like anything. It is not mouth to ear, brain to brain, but Spirit to spirit. Often it is in the area of what we might think to be our own ideas. Have you ever prayed about a matter, wondered what you were going to do about it, then all of a sudden, you got an idea, and you just knew what to do?
God is always speaking, the problem is that we are not always in position to hear what He says. We do not always have “spiritual ears,” as the Bible says. Television stations are broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but I do not see most of their programs, because I do not have my receiver, my television set, tuned in to their station. It is very easy to go about our business, oblivious to God’s speaking, because we are just not spiritually tuned in.
It is His plan to bless you and do you good, according to Jeremiah 29:11, and other verses, but you have to hear His speaking.
