Have You Heard God’s Audible Voice?

Ezekiel 43:2- “I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory.” 

 

From time to time, I read stories in Guideposts or Chicken Soup for the Soul. One such story I found intriguing was about a man stranded on a mountain road. 

No gas, no food, no water.

As he prayed, an audible voice gave him directions and he was able to return home, safely.

Some Christians have heard God’s audible voice, although this is rare.

More commonly, He speaks to believers through impressions and/or through his Word, the Bible.

Direction… encouragement… solace… knowledge.

It’s all there at your fingertips. 

Whatever your need… whatever your circumstance… let God speak to you through His Word.

Spiritual Direction

Psalm 23:1-3  “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness, for His name’s sake.”

My husband loves to drive. Me? I’d rather look at the scenery, read a good book, or recline my seat and take a little snooze.

John is usually good with directions, but now and again, he’ll ask me to get the map out of his satchel and look for a certain road, landmark, or whatever. I’m not quite sure why he asks me to do this because he rarely believes me. He just pulls over to the side of the road, takes the map, and interprets it for himself.

If we should happen to get lost (now really lost, you understand) and I suggest that we ask directions at the next gas station, he gives me “the look”. We’ve all seen it at some time or another, so no further explanation necessary, right?

Why is it people, in general, and men, specifically, are so against asking for directions? Think about how many hours could be saved and how many wrong turns could be avoided!

As Christians, we have an infallible source at our fingertips! God, who has always been in existence, knows the past, present, and future. With His Word as our “map” and His Holy Spirit as our Guide, we never have to face an uncertain future.

If we take a wrong turn, we can get back on the right path by heeding what scripture reveals to us as truth. We feel confident and encouraged. We are no longer “lost”, but with His help, we find our way.
