God Designed You to Hear His Voice
"God does speak - sometimes one way and sometimes another-even though people may not understand it." (Job 33:14 NCV)
The Bible says in Job 33:14, "God does speak - sometimes one way and sometimes another-even though people may not understand it" (NCV).
God designed you to hear his voice. In a sense, there is a "receiver" in you that allows you to get guidance from God.
What channels does God use? The primary way that God speaks is through the Bible. This is why we need to read the Bible every day. God's will is found in God's Word.
God also speaks through godly Bible teachers. Have you ever been in church or at a Bible study and felt like the teacher is speaking directly to you? In that moment, God is speaking directly to you.
God also speaks through other Christians. He even speaks through you. If you'll stay in tune to him and learn his Word, sometimes God will use you to say things to people that he wants to say to them. It's not something special reserved only for pastors; God speaks through every believer at different times.
God also speaks through your circumstances and your pain. God is speaking all the time. But we must listen. Tune in to God, and he will lead you on the right path.
