Does God speak to me personally?

The Bible reveals that God talked to the prophets, apostles and many individuals.  He spoke to people in various situations.  In the Old Testament we often read, 

‘…and the word of the Lord came to….’  

Some examples  

  • God spoke to Adam,  

“And the Lord God commanded the man, ‘You are….'”   Genesis 3:9 

“But the Lord God called to the man, ‘Where are you?'”  Genesis 2:16

  • God spoke to Abraham,  

“The Lord had said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your people….'”  Genesis 12:1

  • God spoke to Moses,  

“God called to him from within the bush, ‘Moses! Moses!'”  Exodus 3:4

  • God spoke to David, Zechariah, Jonah, Paul, Peter and others.   

Personally I would like the same privilege to say, ‘The word of the Lord came to me;’ that God spoke to me personally.  Why it matters to me is because of how I grew up.  Favoritism was a sensitive subject.  Fortunately God is fair and has no favorites.  He explains, through Jesus’ words to the Sadducees, that He speaks to us, 

 ‘But about the resurrection of the dead – did you not read what God said to you…?’  Matthew 22:31  

That is the clue.  God speaks to me/us in His Word.  When I read the Bible it is the same as sitting with God who tells me His will and plans for my life.  He gave the Holy Spirit to help anyone who listens to Him while He speaks through His Word.  We can even take part in two way conversation with God when we pray.  Wow, what a privilege!

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?

One thought on “Does God speak to me personally?”

  1. Fallen man has turned away from God, we see him hiding from God in the garden. God has never left him, He is the very essence of life within him, He breathed of Himself into man at creation, without His breath of life abiding in flesh man will cease to be. He tells us that our bodies are His temple, His home.
    Oh yes, He speaks to all men, it’s not that He does not speak to man, it’s that man won’t answer, speak to Him.
    Since the fall.
    All it takes is repentance, to turn around, do a 180 about turn away from self, being led by the desires and fear of the flesh. It’s only a matter of time, sooner or later,
    I believe every knee shall bow, every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. By the power of the mystery, of the hope of Christ abiding in men, the hope of glory.
