What are other ways that God talks to us? Through other people. And that can be anybody, not just other Christians or people you think have the ear of God. Any conversation can trigger your spirit to pay attention. A random comment might confirm something that you heard before.
Pay attention if different people happen to say the same things to you. You might hear from God through something you heard on TV, an email, or a billboard. God has access to everything and He’s pretty creative about using it. It’s easy to pass off His communication as coincidence, so think before you ignore it. Change your perspective from He doesn’t talk to me to He’s always talking to me. Next post, some more ways He communicates.
I don’t know why I was surprised to learn that God wants to talk to me. But when you stop and think about it, He set up a plan for us to connect with Him through Jesus’ death on the cross. It was a huge move on His part, just to let us go directly to Him. If He was willing to do all that, why wouldn’t He want to talk to me now, today. It makes sense.
So, exactly how is He talking to me? Well, it turns out that He has all kinds of languages, and not just the kind that we speak. He will use any form of communication that we have—whatever we see, hear, feel, or think. He uses scripture a lot because He wrote it. Those verses that jump off the page? That’s Him talking. Keep a journal and write them down and date them. Go back and read them and see what He’s telling you. Next post, more ways God talks to you.
