I was having a conversation with a colleague yesterday and we got to talking about life, choice and the process of change. During the conversation we got on the subject of how God communicates with us…so of course I thought it only fitting that I share my thoughts. God’s communication with us individually is basically the same as a parent who knows and loves their children well enough to understand how to best convey messages to them effectively. We each individually have our own way of communicating with our parents that is unique and often times different from that of our other siblings. The same holds true for our relationship with God. God knows exactly how to best get across a message to us, which is based on our individual relationship with God. For some it’s through our experiences, some through our feelings, some through signs and for some of us it’s actually hearing the voice of God. No mode of communication is better than the other, as long as the message is understood.
Now, the other aspect at play here is our being ready and willing to hear from God when there is a message for us to get and/or a lesson to learn. We often allow the business and stress of our lives to crowd out our communication with God. The way to circumvent this interference is to stay in constant communication with God through whatever medium that works best for you as an individual….this will only make the process easier. And so it is…
