It has always been the Lord God's desire to speak to His people. At the very beginning of creation He talked with Adam each day. He talked with the patriarchs. He talked with His people Israel. We hear His voice at the Jordan River at the baptism of Jesus saying, "This is my beloved Son, hear Him". Jesus said to the people, "He who has an ear to hear, let him hear". Seven times in the book of Revelation we are told to "hear what the Spirit is saying". In old times the Lord spoke through the prophets, but in these last days He speaks to us through His Son.
Since it has always been His desire to speak to us in the past, then that means it still is His desire today. God desires to speak to mankind. He desires to speak to YOU. The question is, "Are you listening?" When there is a problem in communication, it lies with us. We are the ones who are either not listening, or not understanding what He is saying. The understanding part is easy to correct-- just ask Him to clarify. He will. Why do we think that the Lord would speak to us and then not give us the understanding of what He is saying? Sometimes we just have to listen a little longer.
The Lord is speaking all around you--- through His word, by His Spirit, through creation, through other people, through circumstances, as well as through dreams and visions. Are you listening? Or are you continuing to ask Him to "speak to you"?
Have a great day. God desires to speak to you, and He is... are you listening?
