Can you hear God’s voice?

Read: Matthew 2

We live in a world of relentless voices telling us what we should own, where we should go, how we should live and especially what we should believe. How do we sift through them and separate what matters from what doesn’t? How do we distinguish God’s voice from all the chaos? 

In Biblical times, God spoke to people through the written law, prophets, angels and dreams. In Matthew 2:13-21, Joseph heard from God in a dream that King Herod had ordered the execution of the Christ child. Angels warned Joseph to take baby Jesus and his mother to Egypt until they were safe. Though God could use this same approach to address us, Hebrews 1:1-2 explains how God speaks to us today: “In the past, God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son.”

Jesus’s appearance on this planet is God saying, “I faithfully love you and relentlessly pursue you.” Jesus’s death on the cross is God saying, “I forgive you, no matter what.” Jesus’s resurrection from the dead is God saying, “You can be made brand new and live in freedom.” Because of Jesus and our faith in Him, we can now clearly hear God through His word, the Bible. And as we strive to know more of God by reading our Bible, His Spirit teaches us how to hear our heavenly Father and how to know His will for our lives.

Reflect: 

  • What's one way God has spoken to you in the past?
  • What is one thing God is telling you right now?
