God speaks in different ways
God cares for us and it is not his will that anybody perish but that all repent , come to Him and live in close relationship with Him for eternity. That is why God speaks to men, to warn them, to draw them unto Himself so that they can have LIFE and eternal life.
We read in Job 33:14.
14“Indeed God speaks once,
Or twice, yet no one notices it.
15“In a dream, a vision of the night,
When sound sleep falls on men,
While they slumber in their beds,
16Then He opens the ears of men,
And seals their instruction,
17That He may turn man aside from his conduct,
And keep man from pride;
18He keeps back his soul from the pit,
And his life from passing over into Sheol.
19“Man is also chastened with pain on his bed,
And with unceasing complaint in his bones;
20So that his life loathes bread,
And his soul favorite food.
21“His flesh wastes away from sight,
And his bones which were not seen stick out.
22“Then his soul draws near to the pit,
And his life to those who bring death.
23“If there is an angel as mediator for him,
One out of a thousand,
To remind a man what is right for him,
24Then let him be gracious to him, and say,
‘Deliver him from going down to the pit,
I have found a ransom’;
25Let his flesh become fresher than in youth,
Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor;
26Then he will pray to God, and He will accept him,
That he may see His face with joy,
And He may restore His righteousness to man.
27“He will sing to men and say,
‘I have sinned and perverted what is right,
And it is not proper for me.
28‘He has redeemed my soul from going to the pit,
And my life shall see the light.’
29“Behold, God does all these oftentimes with men,
30To bring back his soul from the pit,
That he may be enlightened with the light of life."
God speaks to us in different ways to get our attention. We cannot PATTERN or PREDICT how God will speak. He speaks to every single person in a special way, in a way that you and I will understand. It is because GOD CARES for YOU and for me. We are not just a number, we are dear to Him. He cares for us.
He will speak to you in such a way that you understand: JESUS IS CALLING ME. HE IS CALLING ME TO REPENT, TO COME UNTO HIM TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. But if we keep on turning away and keep on ignoring Him, there comes a day when the Spirit of God will not longer plead wit us because there comes a day that the door is closed, when we die and then it is all over. But right now the Spirit of God is speaking to you and me in various ways. Nothing happens without cause . God is in control of everything and it is His will that you and I do not perish but that we turn to Him to have LIFE.
Do you hear God speaking to you through your circumstances? Are you listening? Will you answer to the call?
May Jesus bless you.
