One thing I have learned over the years is that God is a God of surprises. We can never limit Him in any way, including the way He will speak to us. He often speaks in unexpected ways. It would be easy if we could just dial a number on a spiritual cell phone and hear the reassuring voice of God answering, “Hello, this is God speaking!” In reality, He is speaking to us every day in ways we may often miss. The Bible says, “For God does speak—now one way, now another—though man may not perceive it” (Job 33:14). The Bible gives us many clues to hearing God’s voice. The Lord has an enormous range of options for speaking to us. He speaks through His Word, and He speaks through the inner witness of the Holy Spirit. He may speak through circumstances, or through dreams or visions. But you can count on it, God is speaking, and He calls us to learn to listen to His voice.
