God Loves To Speak To His Children
God loves to communicate with his children today just as we see him communicating with individuals in the Bible. In the story of Samuel 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.
God speaks to his children today in similar ways to those we see in the Bible.
In which of the ways listed below have you experienced God speaking to you?
Through PICTURES (still or moving) while praying or reading the Bible
Through A STILL, SMALL VOICE as God spoke to Elijah
Through DREAMS while sleeping
Through SCRIPTURE while reading the Bible, through sermons, on TV or the Internet
