God Loves To Speak To His Children Today
God loves to communicate with his children today just as we see him communicating with individuals in the Bible.
In 1 SAMUEL 3:1-10, we see how a young boy had to learn to recognise God's voice. If we are to grow in our relationship with God as our heavenly Father, we need to learn to recognise the ways he speaks to us personally.
Learning To Listen To God's Voice Takes Time
Samuel did not recognise God's voice to begin with. But he learned to recognise the unmistakable ways in which God speaks to his children and became the foremost prophet in Israel.
In the following pages you will learn of ways God still speaks to individuals today if we are listening.
