The Many Voices Of God

The Many Voices Of God…

Look at the Book of Jonah, only four chapters and yet it’s amazing how many ways God speaks – through His word, through circumstance, through adversity, through a sign, through trouble, through events, through a direct revelation, through illustrations, and on and on.

There are all sorts of books to tell you how God speaks and leads. But the fact is God speaks in all sorts of ways. In fact, chances are, God is speaking to you a lot more than you’re hearing.

You see the point of the Book of Jonah is not that God wasn’t speaking to him. The point is, he wasn’t listening. So even though God was leading, Jonah was still outside the will of God. The point wasn’t about knowing the will of God for his life, it was about following it, saying yes to it.

It’s obeying the will of God you already know. It’s doing what you already know He wants you to do, and to turn from doing what you know He doesn’t. God will give you all the leading you need. The point is obey what you already know is His voice and you’ll hear His voice loud and clear.

The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.” But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the Lord. Jonah 1:1-3

Decide to do what you know God has already called you to do.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
