As Christians, we want to hear from God. We want to know His plan for us. We want answers to our questions. Wouldn’t it be nice to hear the audible voice of God? I have good news! When we believe in Christ as our Savior, He gives us His Holy Spirit to indwell us and teach us all things. Jesus says in John 14:26, “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” When you read God’s Word, invite the Holy Spirit to speak to you.
God so graciously gave us His Word in the form of the Bible, faithfully handing it down from generation to generation and providing for its translation into over a thousand languages. As you meditate on the Word of God and memorize it, you allow the Holy Spirit to remind you of what the Bible says at the moment you need it most! The Word of God is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12). It “is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,” (2 Timothy 3:16). It is our guide for living this Christian life!
We pray that the studies you read this week about Hearing God will strengthen your faith as you abide in Christ!

“So how do we hear the voice of God? The first thing to do is open your Bible. When you open your Bible, God opens His mouth. The surest way to get a word from the Lord is by getting into God’s Word.” Mark Batterson
