We speak to be understood and to give understanding. God is the same way.
God spoke in the Old Testament, and He spoke in the New Testament.
He spoke to Jews, and He spoke to Gentiles.
He spoke in many different ways, but with the same intention: to restore humanity to a true knowledge of God. A knowledge we could never attain otherwise.
And in this posture of overflowing grace, He is still speaking today.
But God doesn’t always respond to us like Siri… and that’s a good thing.
God can, don’t misunderstand. But in my experience (and in my searching of the scriptures) He chooses to speak in ways that cause us to flourish in the waiting, to hunger in the mystery, and to dig into the depths of life with Him.
God speaks through people, through dreams, through situations, through His creation, through pain and joy.
But it is our responsibility to listen. Are we listening?
Here’s a list of examples from the bible where God is speaking.
