It’s understandable and nearly universal for people to want a direct message from God. Many feel that such a miracle is beyond reach. The truth is that He speaks almost audibly to us individually on a regular basis.
In the book of Psalms in the Bible, David says “On your behalf my heart says ‘Seek My face.’” Could I be experiencing the same thing now and then? Is that little voice in my heart actually communicating on behalf of God?
At times I’ve wronged a friend or co-worker. A voice inside told me to apologize. And these silent promptings cover all facets of life. I’ve been noiselessly encouraged to make phone calls, mend relationships, or just take the dinner plates to the dishwasher.
David knew, and I’m learning, that God speaks quite perceptibly and personally much of the time. Instead of straining my ears for what might be coming from “out there”, I’m going to change my focus to the voice “in here.”
