God is always speaking to you. Are you listening?
It’s a good question to ask if you feel lost, worried, unsure about your future or blank about what to do next.
God is an all-knowing Mind that plans ahead for you and has an answer to any question you ask along the way. But like tuning into the radio station you want to hear, we need to make an effort to tune our thought into hearing what God has to say.
God doesn’t always speak to us like another human to get our attention. He may not yell or holler in our face. He may not put on a big show or act out an engaging drama. He may not take us by the shoulders and shake us down to our boots.
God often has a very humble, quiet, calm way of speaking to us. The Bible refers to His approach as using a “still small voice,” to communicate important messages.
To hear a still small voice requires us to shut down noisy competition in our thought that would drown out the guidance of God from being heard. That’s our job! That’s the purpose of prayer.
Prayer is about drawing up close to God so we can feel the divine Hug and benefit from Love’s care. It’s also about silencing fears and concerns that distract our attention from hearing God’s voice and following through with His direction.
We all have the capacity to hear God’s wisdom. It’s built into our being through spiritual sense. And just as we have the capacity to change the station on our radio when the content is disagreeable, we have the capacity to change what we are listening to in consciousness. It’s a choice we make.
So, the crucial question is never whether God is speaking. He is. The real question is, “Are we tuned in and listening?”
