He still speaks

See that you do not refuse Him who is speaking. Hebrews 12:25a

Today I received in the mail a book I have wanted for quite some time.  I finally ordered it – Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology.  It was with great delight this afternoon that I read Chapter 1 – The Word of God.  It dealt with the different forms of the Word of God:  decrees, personal address, through prophets, and the written Word – the Bible.

It amazes me that all through the history of mankind, God has been speaking to us.  That He should have any desire to communicate with us at all, much less to reveal Himself to us through that communication, is difficult to comprehend.  It is as though throughout the ages He has been proclaiming “Know Me.”   Imagine it!  He desires to be known by us.

Although I have never heard the audible voice of God, I do believe that He speaks to me.  When I read His Word He shows me areas of danger in my life and teaches me how to live a life that honors Him.  As I pray, He points out places in my life and my heart that are not right before Him.  As I worship, He floods my heart with revelation of His merciful kindness and glorious holiness.  How can one not delight in such a God as this!!!

He still speaks!  Oh Lord, that I would have ears to hear You and a heart to know You.
