Tuning In To God

“God does speak—sometimes one way and sometimes another—even though people may not understand it.” Job 33:14 (NCV)

God designed you to hear his voice. In a sense, there is a “receiver” in you that allows you to get guidance from God.

What channels does God use? The primary way that God speaks is through the Bible. This is why we need to read the Bible every day. God’s will is found in God’s Word.

God also speaks through godly Bible teachers. Have you ever been in church or at a Bible study and you feel like the teacher is speaking directly to you? In that moment, God is speaking directly to you.

God also speaks through other Christians. He even speaks through you. If you’ll stay in tune to him and learn his Word, sometimes God will use you to say things to people that he wants to say to them. It’s not something special reserved only for pastors; God speaks through every believer at different times. 

God also speaks through your circumstances and your pain. God is speaking all the time. But we must listen. Tune in to God and he will lead you on the right path.

Can you think of a time in your life when you have been hurt by someone? How about when you hurt someone else? Or, a time when you hurt yourself? These moments happen to us all. Some of our deepest pains and anxieties come from refusing to let God heal us. Everybody needs healing from some sort of hurt, hang-up, or habit. That’s why Pastor Rick created the Life’s Healing Choices Study Kit to take you through the eight healing choices Jesus taught in the Beatitudes. The DVD and Study Guide include these eight- life changing sessions taught by Rick Warren.
