God will speak to you. He desires to because He wants a relationship with you and He wants to bless you. All His blessings come to you by a combination of His written word and His spoken word. That is because His blessings come through faith and faith comes by hearing:
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the (spoken) word of Christ. Romans 10:17
God will speak to you if you seek His word and Him with all your heart. You must believe this. If you do, you will seek Him till you hear Him. If you don’t, you won’t; you may attempt to hear from Him but will not stay long enough. Waiting on God always takes longer than you think it should take. God knows your heart and your limits. Do what it takes. Your blessing may depend on it. God will speak to you if you do not give up.
Over and over, the Bible tells us that God’s voice was heard by His servants. The exact way in which His voice was heard is not described, but just that God spoke and they heard. The following are a few examples:
“God spoke unto Noah, saying” Genesis 8:15
“The Lord had said unto Abram …” Genesis 12:1
“The Lord said unto Moses …” Exodus 24:12
“Then came the word of the Lord to Isaiah …” Isaiah 38:4
God speaks to us in many ways. His is not limited to one form of communication. He is all-powerful; He is omnipresent; He is sovereign. The Bible is filled with accounts of God speaking to people, to families, and to nations.
Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. Jeremiah 33:3
God has promised that He would answer you. He did not say when He would answer or exactly what you had to do for that answer. That is up to you. What are you willing to do to get an answer from God? Especially in a world that puts no value on God’s voice. Throughout history, people have waited on God and when they heard His voice it changed their lives. In some instances, it even changed the course of civilization. Hear what God says about seeking Him and what He will do:
But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul. In the distant future, when you are suffering all these things, you will finally return to the LORD your God, listen to what he tells you. Deuteronomy 4:30
And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the LORD your God. Deuteronomy 28:2
You will hear a voice behind you saying, “This is the way. Follow it, whether it turns to the right or to the left.” Isaiah 30:21
As the sound of the horn grew louder and louder, Moses was speaking, and the voice of God answered him. Exodus 19:19
When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak whatever He hears. He will also declare to you what is to come.
