Honestly, when I was much younger n the faith, I do more of trying to fathom how possible it is for God to speak or direct a human being.😂
I channel my strength into thinking about how possible that is more than actually building a relationship with God and I think some of us have this same issue.
Eventually with time, I learnt that being a child of God supercedes just waking up to go to church, reading your bible in the morning and not singing or dancing to hip hop songs😂
That it really takes judicious and conscious effort of fellowshipping with him and relating with Him like we ordinarily do with our parents, siblings and friends.
Recently, I’ve been learning closely about the children of Israel and one thing I covet about their era was the way they enjoyed divine guidance. Like I’m talking about DIVINE DIRECTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS.😭😭😭
Like, God usually give them directions in details and in Avery very discreet manner.😭 Through their leader though from Moses and Aaron to the other leaders after Moses and Aarons death
Hmmm, tell Moses what to do next. “Strike the rock” “offer a sacrifice”. “Use this kind of animal” do this one, do it like this… Even though the children of Israel weren’t even as faithful as they ought to be….🤔 Right?
What a patient and loving Father🙌🏻
Isaiah 30:21 (King James Version)
21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

The Holy Spirit told me not too long that when this scripture dropped,👆🏾 somebody still question herself “why am I no still hearing when I have ears?” That sister is still doubting the power of God in speaking. He said I should show you something…👇🏻
Let’s check through some part of the scriptures and see for ourselves 😁. Please I beg you don’t read any of these scriptures casually. See behind the Letters.
I trust the Blessed Holy Spirit to show us something new from them.🙏🏽🙏🏽
King James Version
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
5 The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars; yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
See all those characteristics of that VOICE you’re doubting 😊
I pray that God takes away every form of unbelief in Jesus name.🙏🏽
📌📌📌📌 Remind yourself and your spirit man that even in His silence, you’re still trusting Him. In one wait or the other, either through a leader, your pastor’s sermon, a caption on the road, an impression in your heart, the book you’re reading, the Bible you’ve got, a song fired into your spirit man, you’ll get the answer.
Meanwhile ensure you’re trusting him with the whole of your heart. This is where many of us miss it but the word of God cannot be broken. “Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.” Be very very sure you’re satisfying this requirement.
At several points in time, we’re in crossroads as we journey through life.
Even as a believer, we halt to seek for God’s consent about a particular matter in our lives and it seems like we’re not even hearing anything.😖😖😖
This has happened to me countless times. But that never over rule the fact that God still speaks to His children. Yes, it never changes God. He’s still God.
What I do in this case is to deeply check within, my standing with God and then continue to walk with Him as I still pay close attention, looking out for what He’ll say. Funny enough, sometimes, God will leave you with that matter you’re asking Him about and begin to speak expressly about other things and you’re like 😭😭😭 Baaamii, but that’s not what ayaaamm asking you about faa 😂
OUR GOD IS AWESOME.
There’s a voice even in the silence and those who listen closely will hear 📌
Psalm 25:9 (King James Version) 👇:
9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
Dear sisters, God still speaks to His children.
If any point in your journey through life, it feels like you’re not hearing God speak to you.
📌 Check if you’re still in right standing with God. Remember the scriptures. “He’s of a purer eyes than to behold iniquity. Ask yourself if you’re in right standing with God.
Perhaps you’ve not heard him because you want him to speak in particular way. You want to hear an audible voice when he’s been speaking since through your mum but you’re refusing to pay attention.
We pray for Grace to pray close attention to what God’s saying to us.😭😭🙏🏽🙏🏽
Grace to be sensitive.
Sisters never box God. Understand the way He speaks to you before now and then still be open, he can decide to show you a dream when you’ve never gotten his leading by dreams in the last 10 years of your walk with God.
Please be open! He still speaks.
📌📌📌 What passage of the scripture has the Holy Spirit been impressing in my heart lately?
Is it an instruction? Carry it out first then come back and continue from there.
📌📌📌 Spend some time to tarry in His presence in silence. Like don’t say a word, let your heart and mind be still.
Not that you’re lying on your bed saying “speak Lord” and your heart is reminding you about how one of your course mate spoke rashly to you. Or you’re remembering your client that you have appointment with.
My dear sisters, a busy heart thinking about several thing constitutes to the NOISE preventing you from hearing God.
Be still in His presence.
Don’t just pray and get up, rush into the bathroom. Give Him time. Stay there and stay there. Even if He’s still silent, you’ll be able to decipher what the instruction in the silence is.
📌📌 Ask yourself, what was the last things God instructed me to do? Maybe it was as simple as “Give out that show to that sister” and you’ve been arguing with different excuses in your mind…🤔
Ask for pardon and then go back and obey then come again and continue from where you stopped
Lastly, God decides when to tell you about something and when not to. If He decided not to tell you about what you’re asking for, it doesn’t diminish Him into a dumb God.
As mush as you know your ways are right before God and your spiritual antenna isn’t bad, continue walking with God. We will understand some things better by and by.
Also, that Bible in your hands, perhaps you’ve so commonize it that it is only for observing quiet time.
You read through it and your read it like story book. No wonder it looks like He’s not speaking.
Thst Bible is simply
Obey those words you read from there. It has a way of strengthening your walk with God and sharpening your spiritual senses. It is not an ordinary book my sisters.
May God give us understanding.🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Dear sisters, God is interested in every part of our lives. Even those things you feel sounds foolish to discuss with him.
Relate with him with those THINGS na. So you can even learn how it feels to hear from him.
It’s so dangerous to only wait till marriage before we learn how he speaks. The difference between fake and original is one very tiny something you may not pay attention to. Satan can fake voice o.
Learn to be consistent with God. Pray earnestly that He teaches you his ways. Tell Him to make your spiritual senses sharpened. Tell Him to help you obey Him promptly and as you hear him tell you one “very simple” instruction, obey it sharp sharp and wholly, my dear you’re on your way to expressly knowing the mind of God.
