Week 2 | Tuesday – God Speaks
GOD SPEAKS And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
GENESIS 1:3, ESV
God wants to speak to us. But sometimes we have trouble hearing His voice because we don’t really believe He will speak to us. Whether it’s a belief that God doesn’t speak to anyone today, or a belief that God wouldn’t speak to you personally, these beliefs form a barrier that can keep us from hearing from God.
Both mindsets are wrong. For at its foundation, Christianity isn’t a religion, it’s a relationship. The basis of any relationship is communication. Do you want to know the good news? God is a communicator! Over and over in the Bible you will find this phrase, “And God said...” From Genesis 1 all the way through Revelation 22, God speaks. And He still speaks to us today.
In order to hear God’s voice, we must believe and embrace the fact that God loves to talk to us. He loves to make His will known to us. Time and again, God is the one who initiates conversations with us. We just have to be willing to listen. Do you believe God wants to speak to you? Do you believe He wants to communicate with you? Whether you’ve experienced God’s voice many times in your life or have never heard Him, the truth is that He speaks. And He wants to speak to you today.
WHAT IS GOD SAYING TO ME?
HOW CAN I APPLY IT?
TALK TO GOD ABOUT IT.
