Speaks Today

Hebrews 1:2 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. (NIV)

In the Old Testament days God only spoke through the people He raised up to be prophets.  When He sent His Son, His Word to earth in the form of Jesus, He began speaking to us through His Word, His Son, Jesus.  God still speaks to us through Jesus.  He has given us a written account, the New Testament, of how Jesus lived, what Jesus taught and how Jesus ministered.  As we read the account, we hear God speaking.  When Jesus returned to the Father, He sent His Holy spirit to dwell in each and every believer/follower of Jesus in order to speak to them (us).  The only thing that hampers us from hearing God speak to us today is our failure to listen.  We choose to listen to our own intellects.  We fail to realize our own intellects are flawed.  We are in sinful, fleshly bodies and have trouble understanding things of the spirit.  God is Spirit.  We must worship Him in our spirits.  We can only worship in our spirits if we have been reborn through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit through Jesus.  It is then that we are made capable to hear God speak to us as long as we are willing to listen.  It still thrills ad amazes me how much God went through in order for me to be able to hear Him speak to me.  If nothing else ever led or would lead me to fall on my knees and worship Him, this alone would be more than enough.  Just think, the Creator of all that was, is or will ever be wants to speak to us.  Our question we must ask ourselves is how much do we want to hear from Him?  Let us learn to listen.  Let us really desire to listen.  Let us listen more than we talk, asking Him for things.
