Recently a good friend informed me that God had spoken to her, telling her that I am one of His beloved children. Sometimes, at church, some of my fellow Christian claim that God has spoken to them. I wonder if people believe believe that this is pretentious, for somebody to claim that God speaks to him or her. This became a God moment for me. I realized that God speaks to all of us. All we have to do is listen.

Job 33:14 tells us. "For God speaks in one way, and in two, though man does not perceive it." Romans 10:17 says, "So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the Word of Christ." Isaiah 30:21 tells us, "And your ears shall hear a word behind you saying, 'this is the way, walk in it' when you turn to the right or turn to the left."

I believe, that if we have faith, we are more open to listening to God. Communication from God, in whatever form it comes - a whisper, a gentle nudge, a dream, a prayer - strenghtens our faith
