Good Day I will break this into 3 parts: 1 Question, 2 My Background. 3 My problem.
- How does one hear God’s audible voice inside oneself or outside.
- I grew up in the church my whole life, I have read the bible over and over, I was saved and filled with the Holy Spirit 28 years ago. I have lectured, taught, counseled, mediated and chatted about God my whole life. I believe in God’s existence, I believe in his Son, the Holy Spirit, his love for me, his sacrifice for my sins.
- My problem is that everywhere I read God speaks to people in the bible. Remembering that the disciples did not have the written word (bible) but the living word (Jesus) and then the Holy Spirit. I don’t believe that God only speaks through letters/the bible.
The holy spirit should be our teacher, guide, counselor, etc…doesn’t it stand to reason that we should hear him? If God wants us to have a father and son relationship shouldn’t it be an audible one or does one only build a relationship writing notes and giving feelings?
Reading the bible it seems that hearing His voice should be a daily occurrence not a special moment event.
Any ideas or thoughts on the matter or advice on how to actually hear God’s voice and not just feel his thoughts or read his messages?
