When God Speaks
It isn't a matter if God will talk to you - it is whether or not you are listening. But here is a simple rule that you need to remember if you want to hear from God.
When you pray - always remember that you are the solution to your prayer.
Sometimes when I pray - I don't think I can do anything about it - but then God speaks.
Sometimes when I pray - I don't want to do anything about it - then God speaks.
Sometimes when I pray - I know I can do something about it - then God speaks.
Sometimes when I pray - I don't want God to speak to me - then God speaks.
I really believe that God can and will talk to everyone who will listen to Him - the question is - do we pay attention to what we hear?
Why don't we hear what God is saying?
Our pride prevents us from allowing God to humble us. We perceive that it will be too painful.
Our fears prevent us from hearing God - because God may ask us to do something that scares us.
Our inability to see ourselves through His eyes devalues us - so when God speaks we can't make the connection with His will and our lives.
