Every time you answer the phone, hear your name, you recognize the voice on the other end. You don’t have to see the persons face to know who it is. A voice can be an amazing thing. When I get sick the first thing that is effected is my voice, it sucks! On a normal day I am a little nasally and kind of squeaky I guess, you can’t really asses your own voice I guess. Any ways…. regardless if it is nasally, raspy or squeaky someone who knows me will recognize it. The very sound of it will make them smile or frown, either way they will know it is me. The same goes for God’s voice, all through the bible God spoke to people and they just knew it was Him. There was no formal introduction or anything they just knew. I think the only person who in a way didn’t know for sure that it was God was Moses, but what he asked was “who shall I say sent me?” we all know the answer. I think it was more a question of how he was going to approach the Jews enslaved in Egypt. I can just picture it now, ‘hey guys so God sent me to save you, yeah I was a prince but it’s totally fine God talked to me, oh by the way Aaron and Miriam I am your brother. So is everyone ready or?’ He had to know what to say to them so that they knew it truly was the God of Israel that sent him to them. The first time I heard God’s voice it was beyond words! Really it was probably the most beautiful day of my life!! Though I hesitated telling anyone. Why you ask? Well, I didn’t want people to think I was crazy or lying or to dismiss me saying it was just a dream. I knew to the very depths of my soul that it was God who had spoken to me. Finally I decided that I didn’t care what people thought and I shared it, some people seemed skeptical and others got really excited for me and wanted to know what He sounded like and what He had said. I still share with everyone I can when He speaks to me. I have these things I get in my sleep that my doctors have called night terrors or sleep paralysis, they are not though, you don’t wake from a night terror or sleep paralysis and have a joyful heart and have an endless smile on your face! They use science, I use God! Basically my entire body freezes and I get a noise in my ears, I can’t move or speak, I can look around and am totally aware. During this time if my heart is willing God will speak to me. Sometimes I remember what He says and other times I can’t. But I always know that He did speak to me! If He has words He wants me to write He simply whispers them in my ear. I don’t know the means He uses to speak to anyone else but I don’t doubt in any way that it is Him for me. Does God speak to you? What means does He use? I encourage you to share your experiences! I would absolutely love to hear them! God bless you!
