Having trouble hearing someone because of poor sound quality, or a loud conversation over lunch, or a soft-spoken coworker in a meeting are all something we have experienced. In most cases, we get frustrated because we can’t hear someone well. The same goes for how well we hear the voice of God. We are constantly deafened by the outside ‘noise’ surrounding our everyday lives. You have to get close to someone to hear them whisper. God has the same desire for us in our intimacy with Him. God speaks to us in many ways; Scripture, Desires, Doors, Dreams, People, Promptings, and Pain. To hear the voice of God, we must lean into Him closer; we must know Him. Because of God’s great love for us, we have the privilege of speaking and listening to Him.
