God Is Always Speaking; Sometimes He Is Just Quiet
God is always speaking.
Sometimes Gods voice is loud.
Sometimes it’s still and small.
Sometimes it’s thunderous.
Sometimes He’s in the wind.
Sometimes He’s in the fire.
Sometimes He’s quiet.
Sometimes He’s without words.
I am passionate about knowing God and hearing His voice in my life. His presence and voice is what saved my life and it is one of my greatest joys to see others awakened to the sound of His voice as He pursues them closer to His fathers heart. Think about it. The fact that this all-powerful and loving God desires to be with us and to actively be involved in every aspect of our being and life actually blows my mind. He invites us into relationship with Him and we all know that the best relationships thrive on healthy and continual communication. He wants to be with us. He desires communion and connection. He is that good! With that, one of my strongest convictions in life is that God is always here. He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” [Deuteronomy 31:6]
I truly believe that God is always speaking. I always believe that we find Him when we search with all of our hearts”. [Jeremiah 29:13] Often times we get caught up in complacency and our neat and tidy comfort zones. Boy, do we love our comfort! I know I do. This is something I grow more and more aware of and am intentional about growing and challenging. That which numbs you from acting in total obedience towards Christ is the door to a sad sad life full of “compromise”. Comfort zones are one of the many areas of compromise that will do that to you. Don’t let it fool you. Don’t get stuck. Keep seeking Him and commit to learning His ways. Follow Him wherever He goes. Learn the many ways He speaks to you. Learn the art of listening well.
God is always speaking, yes. He speaks in a multitude of ways and it is crucial to always remain present. It’s crucial to lean in and give Him your full attention. It’s not a chore it’s a privilege to get to learn the many ways He will uniquely speak to you. Something I’ve learned from the wonderful Lisa Bevere; God does not love us all the same or equally. If He did, that would inevitably imply that we were all made the same, uniformed and are even replaceable. God loves us all uniquely with vast and unconditional love. He is love Himself and I believe that He tailors His love to each individual in unique ways. He knows you better than you know yourself and He loves you exactly how YOU need to be loved. Same rule applies as He speaks to you and into your life and heart.
He is always present.
Always with us.
Always engaged with us.
Two facts we see all throughout the Bible; God is always with us and He is always speaking.
“What about all the times where it feels like He is not speaking? Like He’s not listening and is utterly unconcerned with our situations and circumstances. Cause honestly, sometimes it feels like He isn’t. If He has not answered by now…will He ever?”
I have some really good news for you. Beautiful Gospel news. God is with you. God will never leave you. God hears you, always. He is always speaking to you. In one way or another. With or without words. He is ever present. Fully engaged. He never takes His eyes off of you. Whether you “feel” it or not. You can rest assured, He is with you.
God is always speaking.
This is a strong conviction in my heart and life. God is a good Father who would, and continually does, do anything for His children. Like any good and present father, He wants to speak to His kids. He loves you more than you are even capable of understanding the concept of love itself. He is ALWAYS on your case. He is always for you. He has got your back. He wants what is best for you. Not what you feel entitled to or what you think is best. He knows exactly what you need and want and how to give you His best in such a way that is extravagantly beyond your wildest dreams.
Listen for His voice.
Listen for His tone, His touch, His expression, His whisper, His belief in you. I promise you this; He is always speaking. He is for you. Trust that He knows you and is working on your behalf. He wants you and He will do anything to have you. Listen to His eyes.
