I preached this morning about the continuing need for study and teaching within a local church setting, believing this was what God had asked me to do and believing that He had confirmed that to me last week.
I’ve just listened to a message from Bob Yandian and got exactly the same message again, yet another confirmation from God that what I am doing is in His will for my life.
God speaks to us all the time, however we have to ensure that we are listening.
God will speak to you again and again, confirming what He has said, if you give Him a chance and listen.
We can listen in many ways; prayer, reading the Word, talking with other believers, listening to teaching are all ways that we can hear from God.
And it is wonderful when you hear the same message from God via different routes.
God has a plan and purpose for every single one of us and wants to tell us about this, indeed He is trying to tell us all the time.
We have a responsibility to put ourselves in a place in order to listen; we have a responsibility to do things that will help us listen.
I watched some football on the internet last night and didn’t hear much from God, yet when I opened my Bible and settled down to read the Word I heard Him quite clearly.
Different people hear from God in different ways, and we can hear from God in multiple ways.
Every one of us needs to find the ways in which we hear from God, and then once we’ve found them do them!
God is speaking to you today, pouring our His heart for you and your life, and He desperately wants you to hear.
But you have to choose to hear!
Speak this out today….”Thank you Lord that you are speaking to me right now, and thank you that I can and will listen to you”.
2 Timothy 2 v 15…..Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth
