Our God is so infinitely amazing, wise and creative that He does not limit Himself to speaking to us in the same way all of the time. God thinks outside the box! He is a little unpredictable, not unlike Aslan the lion in The Chronicles of Narnia: “One day you’ll see him and another you won’t. He doesn’t like being tied down—and of course he has other countries to attend to. It’s quite all right. He’ll often drop in. Only you mustn’t press him. He’s wild, you know. Not like a tame lion.” If we want to hear from God, we must trust Him even if there is no “one safe method” or formula to hear from Him. Allow God to surprise you! Trust Him to speak to you. Cultivate your friendship with Him. You are in a lifetime walk with the Creator of the universe, and hearing His voice is a skill to be learned over time. My prayer for you is that you will experience the Lord’s presence and hear His voice in a whole new dimension as you continue your lifetime walk with Jesus. Let’s together fulfill the Lord’s purpose for our lives as we look forward to His return. Remember, Jesus said eternal life is knowing Him (John 17:3).
My prayer for you
